  1. Just announced for next June: https://www.ballet.org.uk/production/swan-lake-round/
  2. Just got back from Swan Lake in the round and I was enchanted. I was a bit sceptical from the clips I had seen, whether I would like it or not, but I am tempted to go again. Alina was strong and beautiful, Osiel's jumps tore up the stage, but the 60 members of the corps were the stars, the patterns they made were unbelievable. There are some tickets still available, do go if you can. Even better, I was waiting for a taxi to go to Victoria to get the red eye coach home, and Irek Mukhamedov came out of the door, and he signed my pointe shoes! He was so humble, he said, 'I can't, I didn't do anything', but he kindly signed them anyway. If you do get a chance to go, go in at Door 1, they have a black and a white swan tutu on stands there, lovely to see them so close up.
  3. Foteini Christofilopoulou was at the afternoon rehearsal with Daria Klimentová & Vadim Muntagirov cast. Here are a couple of photos to remind us of how glorious Daria is, for her retirement performances: Daria Klimentová as Juliet © Foteini Christofilopoulou.

  4. Derek Deane's 60-Swan arena production of Swan Lake for English National Ballet opened once again last night in the Royal Albert Hall. It normally works well with the public at large and there was certainly enthusiastic Twitter comment afterwards last night. But not everyone agrees. Ismene Brown, in her overnight review for the Arts Desk, considers it as being all about "numbers, geometry, soulless mechanics," and some other grumbling Tweets are appearing this morning. http://www.theartsdesk.com/dance/swan-lake-english-national-ballet-royal-albert-hall But put all of that aside. If you go during this run, what do you think about it?
  5. Following the Schaufuss version last week, ENB bring their "proper" version of Swan Lake to the Coliseum as from tomorrow (and perhaps by then we'll have confirmation of who the first-night cast will be). I gather the corps de ballet have just been performing some of it at the Olympic gymnastics this afternoon. The casting we currently have is discussed here: http://www.balletcoforum.com/index.php?/topic/1465-enb-swan-lake-casting/
