  1. Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere. I'd be surprised if it has been missed. Seems to be the ballet season announced for this year that was subsequently cancelled. Like before, not much I'm personally interested in apart from the Carlos Acosta dance/drama film I enjoyed at the cinema. https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/2021/dance-season-2022
  2. Really liked the film, Hayward as glorious as expected (the camera clearly loves her) and the rest of the cast looked very good as well. Clever 'staging', though there was a bush that really needed pruning since it took centre view in a couple of scenes. The set and costumes are deliciously opulent. I was very happy to hear that Michael Nunn and William Trevitt are hoping to make more ballet films. I'd love to see Swan Lake filmed, though judging by the comments about mime and natural settings, that is unlikely to be a contender.

  4. If people watched Mayerling or recorded it this is the cast list for it. There is a a link to download the full programme (in different languages including English) at the bottom. https://www.roh.org.uk/showings/mayerling-live-2018
  5. Just received a tweet announcing a new filmed version of the the above starring Francesca and Bracewell as the lovers, supported by dancers from the RB. Being shown by Curzon chain on December 16th , I guess to tie up with release of Cats. Looks great, hope for DVD eventually. If there was any doubt this will rocket Francesca’s career to greater heights.
  6. Subjects of a short ballet season on BBC2 and BBC4 from 1 March will include Margot Fonteyn and Michael Somes in The Sleeping Beauty, Tamara Rojo preparing for Odette/Odile and the development of the Sadler's Wells Company during World War Two: http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-26170015
  7. I have just received an email informing me that Northern Ballet's 1984 will be shown on BBC4 on 28th February! Susan
  8. I thought this [the Imagine programme on Carlos Acosta] was a very enjoyable and detailed documentary. Some interesting archive footage and very interesting to hear Carlos talk about his exciting project in Cuba.
