  1. Is everybody too busy watching to actually post about this yet? All I can say is, thank heavens for picture-in-picture mode! MAkes it possible to work and (sort of) watch at the same time!
  2. It's back https://www.roh.org.uk/news/worldballetday-returns-on-29-october-2020 https://www.instagram.com/p/CF_pzi_gL_i/
  3.

  4. A thread for any thoughts arising from the BBC's "Proms" season this year: archive recordings until a couple of weeks before the end of the season, by which time we should be getting some live concerts, even if their current programmes are as yet unspecified. My first, rather random, thought: is Rossini's overture to Semiramide as reminiscent of the music for La Sylphide as I thought it was on Wednesday?
  5. I hope it's ok to start a thread for 2020 auditions for The Royal Ballet School. I see there is an Elmhurst thread and it's been lovely to read. We're on the audition circuit this year for year 7 and always find it helpful and supportive to find a thread with people going through the same thing. Good luck to everyone auditioning this year and big hugs to the supportive parents who ride the rollercoaster with them! X
  6. Northern Ballet has issued an End of Season announcement. The dancers leaving the company have been listed but they have stated there will be no promotions due to the C-19 pandemic and new dancers cannot yet be announced. https://northernballet.com/blogs/northern-ballet/20-07-01/2020-leavers I feel so sad for the dancers who have retired having missed their valedictory performances due to the pandemic. Of course this has affected many dancers in many companies. The leavers are Hannah Bateman (retiring), Nicola Gervasi (retiring), Nina Querioz da Silva, Abi
  7. ENB has just announced the finalists for this. As I have mentioned almost all these dancers in my posts over the last year, I am really looking forward to seeing their talents highlighted! "Announcement 🎉 Meet our Emerging Dancer 2020 finalists: Ivana Bueno, Carolyne Galvao, Miguel Angel Maidana, Victor Prigent, Emily Suzuki and William Yamada! Their colleagues voted for them to perform at the #ENBEmerging final on 29 May in London. Congratulations from everyone at English National Ballet!They will perform a classical pas de deux and a contemporary solo in front of a panel of judg
  8. Starting this thread perhaps a little early, but I've just noticed that the first night tomorrow starts at 7 PM, and hope everyone who has tickets has realized this!
  9. If anyone is in Hampshire and has a spare three hours, Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Swan Lake opened last night at The Mayflower theatre in Southampton. I won’t attempt a review such as the ones I read on here, but suffice to say it was thoroughly enjoyable. It received a well deserved 4 stars in the Guardian today. The ballet had a much darker feel to the productions I have seen previously. The sets and the costumes all adding to quite a sombre, somewhat oppressive atmosphere. I didn’t love Prince Siegfried, Principal Tyrone Singleton, his Prince was a bit dre
  10. Has anyone heard anything about NYB this year? I’ve had a look at their website and it still doesn’t have anything up about the timing of auditions or even what it will be this year (apart from not residential) but I thought someone here might have some insider knowledge!
  11. I saw a very pleasant performance of Swan Lake this afternoon at the Liverpool Empire. I got tickets for my favourite seats at half price in the sale so for £17 inc fees I had a lovely afternoon! The company now uses a projected back- screen instead of scenery and I thought this worked well, although the flying swans were a bit amateurish and distracting. Anyone who knows the Liverpool Empire will know it has a pretty large stage, but somehow RSBS managed to make the stage look too small for them?! I felt the dancers were a bit tight for space at times when all they needed to do was pull th
  12. Cast for today's General...Nunez, Takada, Hirano, Edmonds, Braendsrod. Plus McGorian as "A Widow", Murphy as "Nurse". Very pleased to be here!☺
  13. Any sign of Spring casting yet? I think it was due to go up early this week.
  14. The Viviana Durante interview in today’s links launches this programme in February, with dancers including Durante and Begoña Cao performing Duncan’s Dance of the Furies, Ashton’s Five Brahms Waltzes and a new work. More here: https://www.barbican.org.uk/whats-on/2020/event/viviana-durante-company-isadora-now
  15. The casting is on BRB's website for the whole of the Spring Tour of Swan Lake!!! https://www.brb.org.uk/whats-on/event/swan-lake?utm_source=brb-facebook&utm_medium=post-video-casting&utm_campaign=swanlake-brb-tour#dates-and-times
  16. The Gala was meticulously planned and brilliantly executed. Stunning, sumptuous, ravishing, scintillating and exhilarating from start to finish. A veritable celebration of dance. It deserved a standing ovation and I among others gave it one. I hope that it was recorded for wider viewing.
  17. Scrolling down the ROH website just now, I noticed that the new Cathy Marston ballet, now entitled 'The Cellist' , is to be shown with a revival of Robbins' Dances at a Gathering rather than the previously-scheduled but otherwise undefined Scarlett ballet. Does anyone have any further information regarding this change in scheduling and, for that matter, when the casting is likely to be released?
