Surprised no-one has started a thread on this, being last night was the opening night. However, I went to it and thought the whole evening was lovely. Program. Winter Dreams - Farewell Pas de Deux - MacMillan - Marianela Nunez and Carlos Dying Swan - Fokine - Sarah Lamb Rhapsody - Pas de Deux - Ashton - Yuhui Choe and Valentino Zucchetti Scheherazade - Pas de Deux - Fokine - Gabriela Lugo and Luis Valle Manon - Bedroom Pas de Deux from Act 1 - Macmillan - Laura Morera and Ryoichi Harano Don Quixote Pas de Deux - Petipa/Acosta - Marianela Nunez and Carlos Part Two Mayerling - Final Pas de Deux from Act 3 - MacMillan - Laura Morera,Carlos and Valentino Zucchetti Gloria Domine Deus - MacMillan - Sarah Lamb and Ryoichi Harano Requiem Offertoire and Pie Jesu - MacMillan - Yuhui Choe and Carlos Rubies Pas de Deux - Balanchine - Sarah Lamb and Valentino Zucchetti Apollo Pas de Deux - Balanchine - Marianela and Carlos Anadromous - Reinoso - Gabriela Lugo and Luis Valle Memoria - Altunaga - Carlos Good mix of styles and types of ballet including some contemporary, the final two particularly. The highlight for me was the Don Quixote - both Nela and Carlos having so much fun with it. It included some gravitas as well, particularly Winter Dreams, Manon and Mayerling beautifully danced as were all the pieces. Carlos was in complete pieces at the final "curtain" ( except there wasn't one), plainly overwhelmed and the whole of the Albert Hall on its feet cheering to the rafters. Great send off. Great night.
