  1. Sarasota Ballet have announced a true 'Heritage' programme for their upcoming Autumn digital season and for which you can buy tickets to watch. I have a feeling that many hereabouts may want to do so as it features some true Ashton gems that we don't oft get to see hereabouts nowadays. PURITY IN MOTION (Program 1) 23 – 25 October 2020 FSU Center for the Performing Arts George Balanchine's Donizetti Variations Ricardo Graziano's Amorosa Paul Taylor's Company B BEYOND EXPRESSION (Program 2) 20 – 21 November 2020 Sarasota Opera House Sir Frederick As
  2. The Allegro Youtube link is here. What a way to start the day. A defining reason for a 72 hour smile .... (Well, for me at any rate )
  3. Dansox, the research network for dance run from Oxford University, is hosting what looks like fascinating event on 5th March We are welcoming Alastair Macaulay, former Chief Dance Critic of the New York Times, back to St Hilda’s College to deliver a special guest lecture on George Balanchine, the great twentieth-century choreographer. Thursday 5 March, 5.30pm, Jacqueline du Pre Building, St Hilda’s College, Oxford. The lecture is free and open to all and will be followed by a drinks reception. Please book places at Eventbrite https://www.eventbrit
  4. This truly 'mixed bill' starts tonight and, on the basis of yesterday's rehearsal (where there were additional cast changes!), it's going to be a terrific end to a wonderful Royal Ballet Season.
  5. I was just in Berlin to see the performance of Jewels on 31st October. Hmm not sure what to make of it. Overall I felt rather disappointed with Emeralds and Rubies. Emeralds was nice but the second lady Weronika Frodyma did not manage the first set of clock movements which was a pity and I sensed that her partnership with Arshak Ghalumyan was not that great. For the clock moves my benchmark is the unforgettable performance I saw of this section by Leanne Benjamin at ROH years ago when they premiered Jewels. The lead couple was Aya Okumura, recently transferred from Dutch NB, with Camero
  6. I very much enjoyed the live stream tonight. The Munich company gave a very good account of themselves in each piece. Ashley Bouder was fantastic, I thought, in Rubies. Alina Somova danced with cool precision and allure in Diamonds, just about coping with the brisk tempi in the final segment! A special mention for Vladimir Shklyarov who is really dancing on top form at the moment (appearing in The Little Humpbacked Horse last night at the Mariinsky and presumably flying to Munich this morning) - it was a great pleasure to see again his elan and musicality. I look forward to watching the perfo
  7. The Unknown Soldier Infra Symphony in C Opening Night tomorrow Tues 20th November Dress Rehearsal today - this lunchtime's stellar cast and performance were as per attached sheet, and presumably will be deployed again tomorrow night.
  8. I will kick this off, though in many ways I'd rather not. I enjoyed Vertiginous Thrill - I'd forgotten most of it except the tutu shapes, and it was fun and well danced - lots of turning and jumping. Tarantella: Hayward and Sambe brought the house down. Absolutely brilliant - superb technically, and so full of effortless charm. Strapless looked stylish, but was as problematic as last time round. But it was Symphonic Dances that really depressed me. As a tribute to the wonderful Yanowsky, it could have been thrilling. She was beautiful - how could she not be. But the work itself was, in my view
  9. Anyone fearing withdrawal symptoms when the RB's run of Jewels ends on Friday could pop over to Copenhagen on Saturday and see the Royal Danish Ballet's first night! They haven't danced it before so everyone is new to it - there are some nice photos online and although unfortunately the company seems to have stopped adding captions to identify the dancers, anyone who's caught the recent online Giselle or R&J will recognise at least some of them,. I'm hoping to see a performance later in the run, but if someone sees it before then, please report back!
  10. The latest Royal Ballet mixed bill opened tonight, with Viscera, Afternoon of a Faun, Tchaikovsky pdd and the new Carmen (from Carlos Acosta). Was at the dress rehearsals last week, to put together a gallery of the opening night cast: Viscera - Nehemiah Kish, Leticia Stock © Dave Morgan.

  11. The Royal Ballet's latest mixed bill, featuring new commission from Hofesh Shechter, opens tonight (March 27th, 2015). Alongside this new work, 'Untouchable' are masterworks from Balanchine ('The Four Temperaments') and MacMillan (the mighty 'Song of the Earth'). Was at the Friends general rehearsal, so here are a few photos: The Four Temperaments - Lara Turk, Nathalie Harrison, Edward Watson, Annette Buvoli, Tara-Brigitte Bhavnani © Dave Morgan.

  12. I'm not perhaps the best equipped technically to actually start a thread on a performance, but as no-one else has on BRB's latest mixed bill, here goes! I saw the matinee performance at the Birmingham Hippodrome yesterday and the first thing that has to be said is what a terrible title it is. Surely no-one says 'Stateside' these days? It sounds awfully like '60s DJ-speak! The good thing is, however, that the title was the only thing that was terrible about it. What we saw were three ballets, totally different in character, but all with a vivid American sheen. First off was Balanchin
