  3. This arrived in my inbox this afternoon: Dear Birmingham Royal Ballet Supporter I am delighted to update you on some of the wonderful work that has been taking place behind the scenes here, and to update you specifically on Carlos Acosta’s plans for this autumn and Christmas. Before I do however, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all our Friends and Dancers’ Circle supporters, and to everyone who has made a donation to our #BeRightBack campaign over the last few months. O
  4. Here is a bit of an email I received: We hope that you are still keeping safe and well during this challenging period of time. We continue to create new content through our Home From Home initiative and re-share some of our favourites from past years to help keep you entertained in these difficult months. The latest piece we would like to share premieres tomorrow (29 April) at 11am to mark International Dance Day. Company dancers Kit Holder and Tom Rogers have created Alone|Together, a beautiful piece of isolation dance and music, featuring five members of the Royal Ballet Sinfon
  5. I know that this run still has a week to go before opening night but I thought some may enjoy reading my interview with Delia Mathews as she prepares to make her debut as Aurora alongside Brandon Lawrence. http://tothepointemagazine.wixsite.com/tothepointemagazine/single-post/2018/01/27/ToThePointe-Meets-Delia-Mathews xx
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. Hi Birmingham Royal Ballet - The nutcracker is here. I went to see and photograph thier rehersal , and it was brilliant. I m a newbie and hopefully I can give you all more comments when I have more experience in Ballet performance. https://www.brb.org.uk/whats-on/event/nutcracker-2019 Choreography - Peter Wright, Lev Lvanov, Vincent Redmon Music - Pyotr Llyich Tchaikovsky Design - John F Macfarlane Lighting - David Finn I only posted a photo here b'cos I dont want to leak all the surprises and spoil the show.
  9. From the BRB website: Birmingham Royal Ballet launches international search for new Director 20 JULY 2018 The board of Birmingham Royal Ballet has today launched an international search for a new Director to replace current Director David Bintley CBE, who is stepping down at the end of July 2019. Sir David Normington, Chair of Birmingham Royal Ballet, says: The new Director will provide artistic leadership for the Company and create an ambitious artistic vision, drawing on the best of classical and contemporary works to inspire audiences and to connect with the dive
  10. Did no Forum contributors go to the Hippodrome last week ? Due to old age this is the first season for over 20 years that I haven’t become a subscriber and due to ill health I had to miss the first of the only three shows booked. I had been hoping ( with mixed feelings) to reading a review of what I had missed. I have heard a rumour that the new work was very good. More information would be very welcome.
  11.

  12. (I posted this in the wrong place!) It's too late for Birmingham, but the casting for Plymouth and Sadler's Wells can be accessed from this page: https://www.brb.org.uk/whats-on/event/giselle#dates-and-times I suppose the absence of the Gittens/Lawrence cast means I don't have to go to all 3 performances
  13. Tonight’s opening performance in Birmingham, led by Samara Downs and Lachlan Monaghan was completely, utterly, absolutely and totally magnificent!!

  16. BIRMINGHAM ROYAL BALLET ANNOUNCES 2019/20 SEASON 10 productions, 11 venues, 127 performances, including first time collaborations with Ballet Black and newly appointed Director Carlos Acosta. It’s a season that’s bursting with brilliance! Birmingham Royal Ballet’s 2019/20 season marks an exciting period of transformation. For the first time in the company’s history, the season has been created in partnership with leaders from across the world of dance, including Ballet Black and Birmingham Royal Ballet’s newly appointed Director Carlos Acosta CBE, who bring fresh perspe
  17. Elsewhere, Odyssey has posted about the Birmingham Hippodrome heritage website, containing some interesting archives: birminghamhippodromeheritage.com As Birmingham Royal Ballet have been resident there for a couple of decades, I thought I'd post it here in case it's of interest to anyone.
  18. For those of you going to the Royal Albert Hall to see BRB’s Nutcracker, don’t expect to see the same production as you will see in Birmingham. It’s a “special” version designed for the RAH. Still very lovely but quite different - just as the ENB “In the round” Swan Lake is different from the Coliseum production.
  19. Birmingham Royal Ballet's Autumn season started in their home venue last week with the sunniest of ballets, La Fille Mal Gardée. I was very fortunate to see the 2 performances on Thursday. At the matinee Miki Mizutani made her debut as Lise and was a total delight! It was very hard to believe that this was her debut as she was a total delight from start to finish. I thought she absolutely inhabited the role and her footwork could only be described as dazzling. Her Colas was Lachlan Monaghan, who had made his debut in Bristol in July. I thought it then and confirmed my thoughts
  20. Casting for Fille is available on the website for Birmingham, Plymouth and The Lowry: https://www.brb.org.uk/whats-on/event/la-fille-mal-gardee
  21. It looks as though the Company are preparing the release of information. I can see the headline on the website but no detail. I’m out with my dog so if anyone sees it before me, please feel free to post on this thread.
  22. I was surprised tonight, catching up on the Commonwealth Games coverage, to see BRB dancers appearing in the Birmingham video contribution to the closing ceremony performed to ELO's "Mr Blue Sky" - Birmingham being the host in 2022. Unfortunately, because of my recorder's annoying habit of replaying programmes in "stretched" format, it was a bit difficult to work out who was who, but I guess other people will have more success. I assume it'll be online somewhere.
  23. Birmingham Royal Ballet gave 4 performances of Coppelia in Sunderland and I was very happy to be there. I saw 3 of the performances and I have to say that they all sparkled! SPW's production of Coppelia is just gorgeous with its sumptuous sets and costumes and its attention to detail. On Thursday evening Miki Mizutani was just sublime as Swanilda with Tzu-Chao Chou as her "cheeky chappy" Franz. Her dancing was glorious and her depth of characterisation was beautiful to watch. The role of Franz fits Tzu-Chao like a glove. The incomparable Michael O'Hare gave a perfor
