  1. Yeah, well, the production... It was made in 2000 with "real" sets, not video projections, and they proved to be so huge and difficult to integrate into the repertory system with the Stuttgart Opera that set designer Ramon B. Ivars was asked in 2012 to design new sets that would be easier to move around. And that's what he did with the videos and the letters. Elisa Badenes, by the way, was at the Royal Ballet School for her final year - she did not win a price at the Prix de Lausanne, but she was offered a scholarship in 2008, must have been by Gailene Stock then. Reid Anderson, wh

  4. I suppose Marti Fernandez Paixa was scheduled as Lucentio, maybe Jessica Fyfe as Bianca, but no idea about the rest of the cast. March 2020 already seems sooo far away...😢
  5. A small excerpt from John Cranko's "Taming of the Shrew" with Elisa Badenes and Jason Reilly. It was filmed yesterday at an online gala event at the Theaterhaus, the home of Gauthier Dance, Stuttgart's other ballet company, and on a rather small stage. It is a gala version of different pas de deux from the ballet, first Petruchio's drunken solo from his wedding, then the actual taming pdd, then the solos for Kate and Petruchio from the final pdd. After having filmed Cranko's Romeo and Onegin, Stuttgart Ballet were set to film also Taming of the Shrew for DVD in mid-March 2020, but the lockdow
  6. State Ballet Berlin offers a gala for free from January 1st, 18.00 CET (open end, it seems).

They also show the Nutcracker pdd with Aya Okumura and Alejandro Virelles and a pdd from the 4. act of Swan Lake with Yolanda Correa and Dinu Tamazlacaru. Here’s the teaser:

  11. Bavarian State Ballet changed the time of the Paradigma triple bill: the live stream was cancelled due to the new shutdown in Germany. The online premiere will be on 4.

Berlin State Ballet is off until 3. January, Hamburg still plans to bring a Neumeier premiere on 22. December: "Beethoven Project II". Bavarian State Ballet at Munich presents a triple bill online on 20. December: "Paradigma" unites three choreographies by Sharon Eyal ("Bedroom Folk"), Russell Maliphant ("Broken Fall") and Liam Scarlett ("With a Chance of Rain").
