  1. The ROH has announced a new Wayne McGregor work, to be premiered by the NBC in November 2020 and then be performed by the RB in 2022: 'In this major new international collaboration between The Royal Ballet and The National Ballet of Canada, Royal Ballet Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor brings Margaret Atwood’s post-apocalyptic vision to the stage in a three–act ballet, MADDADDAM based on the writer’s acclaimed trilogy of novels: Oryx and Crake, The Year of the Flood and MaddAddam. Themes of extinction and invention, hubris and humanity are spliced together with aspects of Atwood’s non-fiction writings and political voice. Featuring a specially commissioned score from Max Richter, lighting by Lucy Carter, design by We Not I, film by Ravi Deepres, and dramaturgy by Uzma Hameed, this world premiere reunites the creative collaborators from McGregor’s Olivier Award-winning ballet Woolf Works. Kevin O’Hare, Director of The Royal Ballet comments ’Wayne’s genius in bringing together some of the most exciting creative forces in art today reveals itself again with this latest venture. Collaborating with Margaret Atwood, author of some of the most haunting and potent writing in contemporary literature, is a wonderful prospect for our next co-production with The National Ballet of Canada. It’s a dazzling opportunity for dancers from both of our companies to relish.’ Karen Kain, Artistic Director for The National Ballet of Canada adds ‘I am thrilled The National Ballet of Canada will premiere Wayne McGregor’s exciting new work, MADDADDAM, our third co-production with The Royal Ballet, in November 2020. I have long admired Wayne for his intelligent, visually stunning and highly physical work that continually pushes the boundaries of creativity. He has a perfect collaborator in Margaret Atwood. Together they are creating a work firmly rooted in the Canadian landscape exploring themes of extinction and invention, hubris and humanity and activism.’'

  6. Not very pleased with the RB this morning. Signed on nice and early to get tickets for Frankie and James Insight Conversation in the Clore only to find it was already sold out. Some point being a Friend+ if they sell all the tickets beforehand to their wealthier patrons. Bolshoi is expensive too. Not a good start to the day.
  7. I was going to add this to the thread about the RB's Ashton Mixed Bill but it is going a bit off-topic so I've started this one instead. In the BBC's recent documentary about the RB "Dancing in the Blitz", there was a clip of the dress rehearsal of the first production of SV. The only surviving dancer from the original cast, Henry Danton, talked about it as being a relaxation for the dancers to dance something that was pure dance. Despite its technical difficulties those who danced it in the past apparently loved it. According to the programme (narrated by David Bintley) the clip has never been seen before which opens up all sorts of possibilities. If it's from the RB archives maybe more film from this era will be made available for us to see. Incidentally, if anyone missed this fascinating documentary, I have a home recording which I am happy to lend. Linda
  8. O.K. ..... I'll start off ... I REALLY think they should identify ALL their dancers in as personal a way as possible on their website. I would like to suggest (and I know this is NOT going to happen) but still it might be a dream to have each give a personal screen test a la NYCB. This could be quickly shot in a matter of, say, ten minutes, with two camera operators, one sound person and then a team of editors to quickly piece the material together and download. I'm sure there are a goodly number of extremely talented film school students (ah, yes those who get the discounts and now 20 additional places saved for EACH RB performance) who would do an excellent job simply for credit. To give an example what I mean ... here are two WONDERFUL principal dancers from NYCB .... both now on a truly world class trajectory ... (and, hey, - while we're at it - wouldn't it be great to have them guest just once in a RB performance of Balanchine or Robbins or Wheeldon or Ratmansky or the stunning work of that incredible artist, one Mr. Jason Peck. Both are as well a stunning Apollo): Young Chase Finlay (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wf9dcKlepWY) and only slightly older - but equally brilliant - Robert Fairchild. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgCHUSb8Se4 Enjoy. Here is a (then) soloist, Adrian Danchig-Waring who we saw dance plentiously when the company was here at the Coliseum in 2008. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgRWPgZ-3UE Here is one from a current NYCB corps member to give but another example of differing rank, Harrison Ball: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CNQLRI947U I must confess sitting here that I don't know his work ... but having seen this film I feel I know him a tad and could easily pick him out of the crowd when he dances. Here's a new female corps member, Indiana Woodward: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJuROl_LAoo That personal touch could, I think, make SUCH a difference. Perhaps IF the RB were to do such a thing, Ivan could translate for Natalia. (They are always so adorable together .... .... and given that this would be a free flow personal thing ....
  9. it would be really interesting to know what first nighters thought of this programme. I only attended the rehearsal so comment from me would be inappropriate at present.
