  1. To my astonishment I was given a set of earplugs at the Paris Opera Ballet mixed programme, prior to Schechter's piece, The art of not looking back. (The message on the plastic cover said, in French, 'So that the music remains a pleasure"). Has anyone been given ear plugs at the ballet before? Unfortunately the ear plugs didn't prevent someone in the central stalls being seriously incapacitated during the piece. Like the music, the choreography was often dark and aggressive, and contained words blaming his mother for leaving him. Danced by nine women it contrasted utterly with a ballet by another angry man, Robbins, for eight female dancers, which I had seen just three weeks before at the Robbins festival. Antique Epigraphs is brightly lit, has varied pastel coloured costumes, is joyous and serene, to lovely music by Debussy. The programme opens with a site specific work by the circus artist, Thierree, with a wide selection of POB dancers slithering about the steps and locations of the Garnier dressed as mystic creatures. The third item is The Male Dancer by Ivan Perez, to music by Part, for 10 males, including etoiles, all in extravagant costumes. The solos include references to L'Apres-midi d'un faune and Le spectre de la rose. The final piece, my reason for doing a day trip to Paris, was Crystal Pite's The Seasons' Canon to Max Richter's version of Vivaldi's Four Seasons (which is also the music Kenneth Tindall is creating his new ballet on), as impressive and moving as ever. This programme was filmed last week and will be available to watch on line for several weeks. The music is all recorded.
  2. A bit early to be starting a thread on this yet, when the run doesn't start until Thursday, but I wonder if anyone has splits yet for the programme (and/or can confirm that the running order is as above)? All the ROH website says is running time 2 hrs 35 minutes, and my reminder from the ROH was simply tacked on to an email about my last Sleeping Beauty booking, and didn't give the split times. I'm guessing there will be significant intervals. I'm also stunned to see that 8 performances of this are scheduled, schools' matinee included. Perhaps that partly explains why there seem to be so many seats left.
  3. The Canadian contemporary company, Ballet British Columbia, will be touring England for the first time next March. Three ballets by women choreographers, including Crystal Pite, a former member, will be performed. Starting at Sadler's Wells (6-7), the company will then appear in Brighton, Newcastle, the Lowry and Bradford.
  4. Sorry this is just a quick "OMG it was brilliant!" ...but it was. "Ceci est mon corps" made you grit your teeth to begin with but then really took hold. The all male cast was incredible. If violence can be beautiful, then this was. "Energence" was stunning. On all levels. Amazing. And the company itself is so good - to be praised to the very heights! try and grab a ticket if you can...
