Teatro Colón have put up their 2018 recording of MacMillan's Romeo and Juliet on YouTube, starring Lauren Cuthbertson and Iñaki Urlezaga
Not sure if this is the right place but I have caught up with Dark Kinght and Dying Swan or if there's a need for a new thread. Interesting that Dark Knight emphasised how good Kenneth MacMillan is at telling a story when the documentary seemed rather meandering with little narrative dynamic. Also I found it irritating mixing three different Romeo and Juliet couples and including some slow motion. There are of course some fabulous sections/archive clips so well worth seeing but I can't help thinking it should have been much better. I very much enjoyed Dying Swan. There is an incredible section where Zen watches Natalia Osipova rehearsing Dying Swan - it really is wonderful to see and very poignant indeed.
Extract from an email sent yesterday from "Development and Enterprises" at the ROH: " We are delighted to announce that early in July the Company will be making a very special journey to Budapest to film our production of Kenneth MacMillan’s beautiful Romeo and Juliet for broadcast by the BBC. …………………. The film, which is scheduled for broadcast by the BBC on Christmas Day 2019, is a collaboration between The Royal Ballet and BalletBoyz that will bring this true classic of 20th-century ballet to a huge audience of new ballet fans and life-long balletomanes alike"
The Friends General rehearsal today was Lamb & Pennefather. I know we don't generally comment on rehearsals but given the slow ticket sales for this run, I want to say that they were terrific and there are plenty of tickets left for the matinee on Saturday at, I believe, discounted prices. Grab a bargain !
