  1. Well, I'm afraid it wasn't a flawless broadcast of Raymonda today at the cinema I went to: in addition to numerous (and seemingly regular) gaps in the audio (and often video) of about one second, we had two long losses of picture and sound, one in each of the first two acts. One of them resulted in the screen becoming more horribly pixelated than anything I'd seen since the motherboard on my new laptop failed about a decade ago I hope others fared better. Technical issues apart, I'm afraid I found myself nodding off several times during Act I: not sure to what extent that was du
  2. English National Ballet Nutcracker National Tour 27 November – 5 January 2020 Liverpool Empire and London Coliseum www.ballet.org.uk/nutcracker As part of its 70th Anniversary Season English National Ballet is continuing its Christmas tradition of presenting a Nutcracker production each year since 1950. English National Ballet's Nutcracker returns this festive season with performances at the Liverpool Empire Theatre (27-30 November) and the London Coliseum (11 December-5 January) Principal casting for the performances is announced today and sees three debuts in
  3. Here's my thoughts about my first time seeing Mariinsky Ballet live. I went in without any judgement or concrete expectations and left looking forward to seeing them again in the fall when they will perform Paquita
  4. The Bolshoi's season of live cinema transmissions started today with Le Corsaire. Please use this thread to discuss the performances. I have to say, I thought the production looked stunning on screen, and that the dancers were generally framed pretty well - no parts of bodies escaping the frame during the dancing. I was a little surprised to find two dancers being interviewed about the roles of Conrad and Medora and then two completely different dancers performing the roles, though! Oh, and I still covet those beautiful white tutus from the Jardin Anime scene, even more so havin
  5. Since I'm sure quite a few people on this forum will have been to tonight's performance already, could someone give me an idea of running time, please? (Plus of course discuss the production if you like )
  6. So pleased to see some very favourable reaction (in French) online and some lovely photos of happy dancers in the Palais Garnier. I will post some thoughts on the performances once I have been and returned.
  7. ENB opened in Liverpool tonight with Le Corsaire. It is such enormous fun and the whole company look as though they are having a ball dancing it! We saw a seriously virtuoso performance from all the principals tonight - Tamara Rojo, Isaac Hernandez, Laurretta Summerscales, Cesar Corrales, Junor Souza and Yonah Acosta. The pas d'action in act 2 brought the house down - in fact I commented to Don Q Fan in the interval that I cannot remember such an enthusiastic audience for a ballet in Liverpool! The whole company looked fabulous but if one person stood out it had to be the amazing Ces
  8. Just wondering about the best strategy for booking ENB Corsaire (for when it comes to London next January)? The best value seats tend to go so I want to book well in advance but of course no casting has been announced. Might someone more experienced care to comment? I don't love Corsaire SO much that I want to spend money on every single night so what is a sensible strategy? Book something and hope (in which case who might one expect to see in this show)? Book the first night of the London run as that's when the critics will come? Or the last night as the company will want to finish their

  10. Just seen that the recording of La Corsair with Alina dancing as Medora is being released digitally this Thursday by Digital Theatre to stream, rent or buy. Great news
  11. This thread is to discuss any of the Bolshoi Ballet cinema broadcasts for this season. According to our original list on the "ballet in cinema" thread (http://www.balletcoforum.com/index.php?/topic/3251-ballet-in-the-cinema-2013-14-season/page-0), they are: October 20th Spartacus November 17th le Corsaire (repeat) December 22nd Sleeping Beauty (repeat) January 19th Jewels February 2nd Lost Illusions March 30 Golden Age Marco Spada although I have a feeling this may have changed?
  12. The long awaited new production of Le Corsaire opens today at the Milton Keynes Theatre with Alina Cojocaru sparkling as Medora.

Lankedem - Dmitri Gruzdyev, Medora - Alina Cojocaru the Pasha and Pasha's Assistant - Juan Rodriguez Vadim Muntagirov - Conrad and Alina Cojocaru - Medora Yonah Acosta, Erina Takahashi, Alina Cojocaru and Vadim Muntagirov More pictures from the rehearsal on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
