  1. And the press release: English National Ballet Nutcracker / Swan Lake / Manon London Coliseum 13 December 2018 – 20 January 2019 www.ballet.org.uk This Winter, English National Ballet presents three critically acclaimed productions, Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Manon, at the London Coliseum. The company today announces Principal Casting for performances of Nutcracker and Manon, and, an additional performance of Manon. Tamara Rojo, Artistic Director of English National Ballet said: “I’m thrilled that we’re able to give our London audiences as many chances as possible to see this wonderful production by putting on an additional performance. It's also a great opportunity for them to experience the remarkable talent shining across the whole Company, who have all really enjoyed bringing Manon to life." English National Ballet presents Manon, and also Swan Lake, at the London Coliseum in January 2019 following performances of both productions on tour in the UK this Autumn. Famous for its dramatic, challenging and expressive choreography, Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Manon features some of the most demanding and fulfilling roles in ballet. Manon is accompanied by Jules Massenet’s haunting music performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic. English National Ballet’s hugely successful production of the timeless classic, Swan Lake, choreographed by Derek Deane with music performed live by the English National Ballet Philharmonic, will bring some of the most iconic scenes in ballet, and Tchaikovsky’s glorious score, to London audiences once again. Continuing its Christmas tradition of presenting a Nutcracker production every year since 1950, English National Ballet’s Nutcracker returns this festive season, following sold out performances in 2016 and 2017. Over 100 dancers and musicians bring to life the popular Tchaikovsky score featuring the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and Waltz of the Flowers, performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.

  4. Anyone know anything about this triple bill that's appeared for 20-25 November 2017 at the Coli? Amore Svetlana Zakharova triple bill https://londoncoliseum.org/whats-on/amore-svetlana-zakharova/
  5. Wasn't sure at all that I would like the new direction story wise, aside from the clunky prologue, very much enjoyed and worth a visit. Music reworked in places to fit the new story of a princess bride losing her husband to his other love, black swan solo music brought forward to the first act to show her demise into madness, music from the lake making its first entrance at the end of act 1 as she is taken away to the sanitorium. Pas de trois incredibly emotive - bringing to life the realisation that there were 3 people in the marriage. Beautiful costumes, flowed in sync with the dancing and wedding dress of billowing fabric negotiated incredibly well by the dancers. Swan costumes looked feathery soft and light. Incredible costumes, wedding dress of billowing fabric - negotiated incredibly well by the dancers. Magical swan scene, beautiful staging, raised 'lake' at one point gave the impression that the swans had taken to the air. Faultless corps de ballet as both white swans and black swans in act 4. Amber Scott gave Odette elegance as well as emotional highs and lows with every movement. Didn't really understand the audience going wild for Adam Bull's performance - more so because male choreography overall was a little underwhelming.
  6. I meant to post this one some time ago, but then it got lost in my inbox, and I've only just retrieved it, so apologies for being so late: The Australian Ballet 13 - 23 July 2016 The Australian Ballet, Asia Pacific’s pre-eminent ballet company, makes a welcome return to the UK to perform Graeme Murphy’s Swan Lake and Alexei Ratmansky’s Cinderella at the London Coliseum in July 2016. Shanghai Season - Thunder Storm Thunderstorm 11 - 14 August 2016 Thunderstorm is an award-winning modern opera about family, society and corruption in Old Shanghai. Zhou Puyuan is the head of a wealthy, successful and seemingly happy Shanghai household. But a storm is gathering… Shanghai Season - Echoes of Eternity Echoes of Eternity 17 - 21 August 2016 The Song of Everlasting Regret is a legendary poem in the canon of Chinese literature, a favourite from the 8th-century Tang dynasty. This year, it will be brought to life by the world-renowned Shanghai Ballet. Eifman Ballet – Up & Down 6 - 10 December 2016 Eifman Ballet returns to the London Coliseum this December with the UK premiere of Artistic Director Boris Eifman’s awe-inspiring ballet Up & Down featuring the invigorating music of George Gershwin, Franz Schubert and Alban Berg. Plus we already know about this from other sources: English National Ballet - The-Nutcracker The Nutcracker 17 December 2016 - 7 January 2017 Over 100 dancers and musicians bring The Nutcracker to life with exquisite dancing, beautiful sets and Tchaikovsky’s glorious score played live. English National Ballet - Giselle Giselle 11 - 22 January 2017 Giselle is a haunting story of innocence and betrayal, a timeless tale about the redemptive power of love. (courtesy of Ticketmaster)
  7. Apart from the La Sylphide recently mentioned there has been added to the Coliseum dance calendar the following: (1) 10th Anniversary programme for the Russian Icons Gala - 8th March 2015 (2) Birmingham Royal Ballet in Carmina Burana and Serenade, March 2015 (3) Irina Kolesnikova and St. Petersburg Ballet Theatre, Swan Lake / La Bayadere, August 2015 Perhaps given that - as we have been told by a BcoF poster - the Hochhausers are not next year to bring over one of the two major Russian ballet companies, the St. Petersburg Ballet Theatre - who regularly tour regionally throughout the UK - felt brave enough to cover the vast expense of the London venue's hire knowing of the local audience's passion for all things balletically Russian when at the ROH during summer sojourns. I pray their investment proves to be a prudent one and not ruinous. Odds are I fear not particularly stacked in their favour in terms of a commercial return given the capacities rendered by the Russian Seasons programmes during Summer 2014 and knowing that their presentation of Swan Lake with noted principals from the Mikhailovsky Ballet was ultimately cancelled due to lack of advance sales. Sadly the balcony is currently closed from sales for ALL of these presentations. Source

    Booking at ENO

    We give the Royal Opera House enough stick for its booking system on these pages, so it seems to me to be only fair to do the same for the London Coliseum when the occasion warrants. I've been at my computer for an hour and a half now, merely trying to book a ticket for Sweeney Todd, starring Bryn Terfel (I'm not actually concerned about casting: I just love Sweeney Todd). I got onto the site about half an hour before booking opened, intending to make sure I was logged in and everything to speed progress, and found myself already in the waiting-room, so I couldn't. Got in to book by about 10.10, and selected my performance. Then tried to log in. Found a note saying that if you hadn't logged in in the past year please send off for a password reminder - I presume this is since they started the new, ghastly website. So I did so, and guess what - an hour later I'm still waiting to be reminded of my password. So I tried to start a new account with another one of my email addresses: Internal System Error. So I'm stuck here wondering if I'm ever actually going to book myself a ticket or not before they all sell out. Very poor show.

  10. 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/
  11. I've just registered that ENB's schedule for the rest of the year is up on their website: http://www.ballet.org.uk/whats_on.php. There's a real variety to choose from: apart from Swan Lake at the London Coliseum in the summer, and Sleeping Beauty, and seemingly Nutcracker (although where isn't clear) touring in the autumn, there are the two Beyond Ballets Russes bills at the Coliseum in the spring, a streetdance-meets-ballet collaboration with Flawless, and another collaboration with other dance groups, to name a few.
  12. What *is* this gala that ENB are supposed to be holding at the Coliseum, according to this report re Polunin in the Daily Telegraph? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/theatre/dance/9053429/Sergei-Polunin-loses-right-to-work-in-UK.html I can't see obvious signs of it, either on their website or the ENO one.
