  1. The Bolshoi loaded their full Spartacus production today on youtube. Svetlana Zakharova as Aegina. Mikhail Lobukhin as Spartacus Anna Nikulina as Phrygia Svetlana Zakharova as Aegina. https://youtu.be/TvZ0XXY1uHU
  2. Its certainly a boon time for Ballet companies putting up on the internet past performances of their ballets, below are a three Stuttgart Ballet's "The Sleeping Beauty" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4GDNAN6x-C4 Teatro San Carlo The Nutcracker (with Vadim Muntagirov and Lauren Cuthbertson) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBVTr1oxbFs&t=14s Cinderella Act 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DauSAFpSApI Act 2 and 3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgEHoSIALYU&t=9s We all need a bit of light in such trying times
  3. 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 due to the very dark set. The third act is quite different in many respects from the Raymonda Act III which the Royal Ballet are currently performing, in particular due to the lack of solos for the supporting dancers - presumably these were given earlier in the ballet, perhaps in the bits I was unable to view. Certainly, the only additional solo was for either Clémence or Henriette, which I thought was a bit odd - I did entertain the thought that one of the dancers might have injured herself and so her solo was simply omitted without comment. It has to be said that it looks a lot more expansive on the Bolshoi's far more spacious stage.
  4. Not sure if this is the right place to post this news, in which case a moderator will move it, but I don't think anyone has listed the Bolshoi Live ballets to be seen next season. They will be: 2019 Raymonda, 27 October Corsaire, 17 November Nutcracker, 15 December 2020 Giselle, 26 January Swan Lake, 23 January Romeo and Juliet, 29 March Jewels, 19 April Apologies if someone has already posted.
  5. This evening is the premiere of Ratmansky's new Giselle for the Bolshoi. This news video is in Russian so even though I can't understand it's still interesting to see the costumes and staging. https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&hl=en&prev=search&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=ru&sp=nmt4&u=https://tvrain.ru/teleshow/vechernee_shou/meldonij_dlja_balerin-497766/&xid=25657,15700023,15700186,15700190,15700256,15700259,15700262,15700265,15700271,15700283&usg=ALkJrhij0y84wnEnM-Z0c4iIy9RMP_FSFg
  6. Pathé Live is showing the 2019-20 season of Bolshoi broadcasts, but for some reason only in French at the moment: https://www.pathelive.com/programme/ballet-du-bolchoi-19-20
  7. Countess Sybil de Daurice Ekaterina Barykina Raymonda, сountess' niece Olga Smirnova Andrei II, the King of Hungary Alexander Fadeyechev Knight Jean de Brienne, Raymonda's fiance Artemy Belyakov Abderakhman, Saracen knight Igor Tsvirko Clemence and Henriette, Raymonda's girlfriends Anastasia Denisova Maria Vinogradova Bernard and Beranger, troubadours Klim Efimov Ivan Poddubnyak Seneshal Nikita Elikarov Two Knights Dmitry Efremov Egor Khromushin "Raymonda's daydreams" Bruna Cantanhede Gaglianone Alexandra Trikoz Ana Turazashvili Angelina Vlashinets Victoria Yakusheva Xenia Zhiganshina First Variation ("Raymonda's daydreams") Antonina Chapkina Second Variation ("Raymonda's daydreams") Eleonora Sevenard Saracenic Dance Nina Biryukova Evgeny Triposkiadis Spanish Dance Anastasia Ermolaeva Kristina Karasyova Mazurka Anna Balukova Anton Savichev Hungarian Dance Oxana Sharova Vitaly Biktimirov Grand Pas Olga Barichka Antonina Chapkina Olga Kishnyova Ekaterina Smurova Alexandra Trikoz Victoria Yakusheva Ekaterina Zavadina Xenia Zhiganshina Ivan Alexeyev Batyr Annadurdyev Anton Gaynutdinov Alexei Gaynutdinov Fuad Mamedov Artur Mkrtchyan David Motta Soares Maxim Surov Four Cavaliers' Variation Aleksei Khamzin Ivan Poddubnyak David Motta Soares Denis Zakharov Variation (Grand Pas) Elizaveta Kokoreva Conductor Pavel Klinichev
  8. Bolshoi and Pathe have started publishing on YouTube short "webisodes" in advance of the Raymonda broadcast. The first one features Yulia Stepanova narrating and dancing the wedding variation from Act III.
  9. Well, I'm assuming that the run of the Bolshoi's Swan Lake starts at the Royal Opera House tonight, so here's your chance to discuss it in detail.
  10. Due to my getting an upgrade, SCS D4 now available for Bolshoi Don Quixote matinee on Saturday August 17th. £15 Paper ticket. I will be attending so handover not a problem. Peter
  11. So, a brief run of Ratmansky's The Bright Stream starts tonight. If you're lucky enough to have a ticket, do let us know how it goes!
  12. It's far too late to be writing on the forum but I still haven't come down from seeing the first performance of Spartacus tonight (or rather, last night!) It was superb. It's a long while since I saw it (with Irek Mukhemadov in the nineties) and this production seemed very different. I was expecting to be dazzled by the quality of the dancing but was surprised at how moving it was. Denis Rodkin was not only bold, brave and athletic but also tragic and convincing in his love for Phrygia, played with vulnerability and passion by Anastasia Denisova (of whom I've not heard before). Belyakov enacted Crassus in an appropriately bombastic manner, and took full advantage of being able to snog Svetlana Zakharova at every opportunity Zakharova was just wonderful. I always think of her as rather sweet, dignified and virginal (as in her Aurora) but here she embodied a cruel and cunning courtesan with every well-honed muscle. She was probably the oldest dancer on stage but also the most lithe. Of course, this ballet is a typical Bolshoi warhorse and suits their style perfectly. The production is ageing well - I think Virsaladze's design still looks fresh (whereas his Swan Lake could do with an update maybe). The orchestra was seriously good. Every male dancer looked extraordinarily handsome - especially Denis Rodkin! And he seemed to enjoy his time on stage so much. He was captivating. The whole evening was beautiful and worth the ticket price (£180 something pounds!) as I will remember it for the rest of my life.
  13. The casting for the Bolshoi’s summer season at the ROH is now posted on the ROH website. Some unexpected pleasures, and a few (not unexpected) disappointments.
  14. Paris Opera Ballet: Thanks, Bruce! I'm not sure what the geographic spread of these outside France is, but thought we should record it anyway.
  15. It was good to see the Bolshoi's La Sylphide- a ballet I haven't seen for years, with the most beautiful woodland set from Peter Farmer. We were told that Johann Kobborg was watching this, his production, from a cinema in London. Worth it anyway for Semyon Chudin with his lovely line, impeccable feet and that lopsided smile. Does anyone know what went wrong in the interviews? Anna Balukova (Madge) was being interviewed by Katie Novikova , but with her eyes constantly in the wings and a growing sense of unease, and then she cut the question short rather brusquely, it seemed, and dashed off. A bit disconcerting.

  20. Start the Week, Radio 4, 21:30, Mon 12th December, about the Bolshoi, 'collision between art and politics'.
  21. We don't appear to have an overarching thread for next season's cinema ballet broadcasts, so here it is! Details of the Bolshoi season are here: Do we have the Royal Ballet details anywhere yet? I can't find them.
  22. 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 having seen them up close
  23. At the screening of The Flames of Paris today the cinema screenings for next season were shown. November 11, 2018 LA SYLPHIDE December 2, 2018 DON QUIXOTE (repeat) December 23, 2018 THE NUTCRACKER January 20, 2019 LA BAYADERE March 10, 2019 THE SLEEPING BEAUTY (repeat) April 7, 2019 THE GOLDEN AGE May 19, 2019 CARMEN SUITE PETRUSHKA
  24. It has become clear via Twitter that a new Director for the Bolshoi Ballet from March 2016 was announced this morning - Makhar Vaziev, previously Director at the Mariinsky, and currently Director at La Scala ballet, Milan. (I make no claim to have the Bolshoi saga of the past two years at my fingertips but, as I recall, he will have fewer powers within the Theatre than his predecessors.) With luck, Ismene Brown will have an English translation of what has occurred in time for tomorrow's Links.
