  1. Well, this is a very unusual Don Quixote that I'm currently streaming. I had a look for an existing thread but couldn't find one, but I'm sure Don Q Fan must have written about it before? Is it a Ratmansky creation rather than a re-creation?
  2. This evening is the premiere of Ratmansky's new Giselle for the Bolshoi. This news video is in Russian so even though I can't understand it's still interesting to see the costumes and staging. https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&hl=en&prev=search&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=ru&sp=nmt4&u=https://tvrain.ru/teleshow/vechernee_shou/meldonij_dlja_balerin-497766/&xid=25657,15700023,15700186,15700190,15700256,15700259,15700262,15700265,15700271,15700283&usg=ALkJrhij0y84wnEnM-Z0c4iIy9RMP_FSFg
  3. La Bayadère Berliner Staatsballett. Ratmanksy - amazing production! Seminova as Nikiya, Virelles as Solor, Correa as Gamzatti. I love the way Ratmansky does Grand Ballet Kitsch with total seriousness and commitment. It was on the one hand watching the 19th. Century come alive, but with Bakst’s spirit hovering throughout, and a witty, knowing but academically informed 21st century approach. His use of mime is perfect - no other does it as well. It was truly a language in itself. The dancing first rate throughout (....although first night wobbles visible amongst the Shades, when they w
  4. Two snakes for the price of one Having seen two performances of La Bayadere in Berlin in September, although enjoying them, I was left wondering whether this Ratmansky reconstruction was as revelatory as his versions of Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake which I have also seen. The extensive mime passages particularly in the first scene, while interesting, added very little more to the narrative that we already know. As in the previous reconstructions there is more demi pointe work for the female corps de ballet. And the Final scene of the destruction of the Temple was li
  5. So, a brief run of Ratmansky's The Bright Stream starts tonight. If you're lucky enough to have a ticket, do let us know how it goes!
  6. San Francisco Ballet's season of four mixed bills begins at Sadler's Wells tonight. All thoughts here, please. The bills are: 1. Ratmansky's Shostakovich Trilogy: "In a triptych of works, world renowned choreographer Alexei Ratmansky pays homage to Dmitri Shostakovich. Attracted by the theatricality of his music, Ratmansky has returned time and time again to the work of the Russian composer. The three works, Symphony #9, Chamber Symphony and Piano Concerto #1 reflect Shostakovich’s life and experiences in abstract form." 2. Liang / Marston / Pita: "In T
  7. Saw no one has yet lifted this topic off, so I thought I would jump in. I wrote a review of the production itself the last time round so I will leave that to historical record. In many ways I thought last night's outing was more fair to the the variety of Ratmansky's choreographic outlines - and certainly Burlaka's 'Dramatic Conception' - such as it exists in this particular 're-imagining'. Indeed - and perhaps more to the point - it was the Bolshoi Ballet Company - itself - as a whole - that here now shone minus its originating - and focus stealing - 'Vasipova' effect, as thrilling as
  8. I apologise for being late, but I guess as the Swiss member of the forum I should finally give a review of Alexei Ratmansky's Swan Lake reconstruction. I was lucky enough to have tickets for the Premiere, and I have to say it was a wonderful performance by Viktorina Kapitonova. Alexander Jones was also very nice and was a great Prince Siegfried too. The movements were very feminine, and the circus-like acrobatics of modern versions was replaced by the story of Maidens rather than swans, and faster, lower, more natural movements by the main characters. The italian style was very much we
  9. I've just been reading Alastair Macaulay's review of ABT's "new" Sleeping Beauty as revised/restored by Ratmansky: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/11/arts/dance/review-ratmanskys-the-sleeping-beauty-has-premiere-in-california.html?ref=dance&_r=1 He sounds pretty taken with it. Would love to read feedback from anyone who's been to see it.
