  1. Sarasota Ballet have announced a true 'Heritage' programme for their upcoming Autumn digital season and for which you can buy tickets to watch. I have a feeling that many hereabouts may want to do so as it features some true Ashton gems that we don't oft get to see hereabouts nowadays. PURITY IN MOTION (Program 1) 23 – 25 October 2020 FSU Center for the Performing Arts George Balanchine's Donizetti Variations Ricardo Graziano's Amorosa Paul Taylor's Company B BEYOND EXPRESSION (Program 2) 20 – 21 November 2020 Sarasota Opera House Sir Frederick As
  2. I had intended to get this up straightaway once the new anti-coronavirus measures were announced, but life has got in the way. Thank you to everyone else who has posted relevant material in the meantime. We knew it was inevitable that more stringent measures would have to be taken, so with no live theatre, concerts, plays, and dance for the foreseeable future, what can we do, arts-wise, to help us pass the next few months? We already have a thread going on online streaming in the opera and classical music world here:
  3. From the ROH just now. My bolding: Dear xxxxxx It is with regret that we must cancel the upcoming Ballet Studio Live event. The programme was due to feature performers from companies involved in International Draft Works, which we have had to cancel due to global travel disruption caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. The cancellation of International Draft Works means that Ballet Studio Live
  4. The Scottish Ballet has a new film out this December. Free online (donation requested) This Christmas, Scottish Ballet will bring the magic of the theatre right into your home. In a deserted city, a young boy stumbles into a theatre. He wanders through the auditorium, where rows of velvet chairs, draping curtains and chandeliers seem to lie in lonely wait for audiences to return. The theatre may be empty, but the show will go on... Starring characters from our most popular festive ballets, the worlds of the Snow Queen and the Sugar Plum Fairy collide when the theatre bu
  5. Has everyone received this email from the Royal Opera House? They're streaming some of their back catalogue of productions via Facebook & YouTube. Looks terrific. #fromourhousetoyourhouse https://www.roh.org.uk/news/the-royal-opera-house-launches-a-programme-of-free-online-content-for-the-culturally-curious-at-home?utm_source=wordfly&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2020_March_Free_Content_Announcement_Public_Ask&utm_content=version_A&emailsource=49912 NB: I hope this isn't replicating what others have already posted; I did check to see ...
  6. Apologies to all having issues with the stream. OMG, Mayara Magri and Matthew Ball in Carousel. Steaming. 💐 💐 💐 Am loving the gala format which shows us pieces like this that I hadn't seen before. Also reminds me of the incredible talent of the RB, who don't all get the attention they deserve, like Sarah Lamb and Ryoichi Hirano (gorgeous in Diamonds) and Akane Takada and Federico Bonelli (so moving in Swan Lake). So grateful to be watching them all.
  7. Don't miss this. It's really charming, really well put together and no spare fat on it at an hour's running time. The little boy with the football is brilliant. Available till midnight on Christmas Eve.
  8. Good to see this: People on this forum have often expressed their disappointment at not being able to see NYCB and/or Balanchine, so it's good to have the opportunity.
  9. Not sure if this was mentioned elsewhere but I just received an email from Sadlers Wells announcing a free virtual Global Gala on 5 December. The email itself mentioned some of the participants (Osipova & Acosta included). Registration link: https://www.sadlerswells.com/receive-updates-about-sadlers-wells-global-gala/
  10. If I wanted to make a donation to charities supporting those parts of the Arts sector which are still lacking support from the UK Government, what choices would I have? I'm not really sure where to start. (And I would really want them to be charities so that I could Gift Aid it). Suggestions very welcome.
  11. May 8 - Pacific Northwest Ballet will hold a virtual house party to stream it’s complete Giselle! From what we can tell from the Facebook announcement, access will be by donation (?). This is the historically-informed production on which Doug Fullington and Marian Smith worked a few years ago. It should be fascinating to watch the film, following on the heels of Ratmansky’s own historical Giselle for the Bolshoi. Go to PNB’s Facebook page for more info...I tried pasting the direct link but could not.
  12. This is next week's contribution from New Adventures: https://mailchi.mp/new-adventures/october-2725030?e=4c93d522b6
  13. More information on Global Gala from Sadler's Wells on Dec 5 The Sadler’s Wells Global Gala will be broadcast online and whether you join us for five minutes or for the whole hour, all are very welcome. Expect to see performances, sketches and messages from our global family, all in support of the theatre. All funds raised will be matched and will contribute to the full reopening of our theatres and the return of our artists and audiences. https://www.sadlerswells.com/whats-on/2020/sadlers-wells-global-gala/
  14. In case you couldn't access the Washington Post link in last week's Links, here are details of MMDG's online season: https://markmorrisdancegroup.org/40th-anniversary-digital-season/ Starts with a livestream tomorrow, 12th November, extracts from The Hard Nut in December, Dido and Aeneas and L'Allegro next year, and more.
  15. Streaming news from my dear neighbors to the north: The National Ballet of Canada begins its ‘20/21 Virtual season today, with “Expansive Dances” - films of three specially-made ballets...including one featuring my special favorite, NBC prima Heather Ogden, choreographed by her husband (also NBC principal) Guillaume Cote. Could it be that I last saw Ogden as Aurora at the Kennedy Center, just seven months ago? It seems like years ago! https://national.ballet.ca/Productions/Expansive-Dances?fbclid=IwAR143JH1qG3z-yRZP3N-c20b26WXFGe8te2xu7tUOx6XZlD33rPwn7Y66Es
  16. My daughter has loved being back at dance. Just read the rule of 6 applies to indoor sports too. Such a shame as her ballet teacher will need to do some juggling/extra classes or zoom to accommodate this. Completely understand and happy to follow all the rules. Just feel for the teachers and pupils managing the changes.
  17. 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
  18. https://www.brb.org.uk/whats-on/event/outdoor-dance-displays A wealthier permitting, free outdoor event from BRB and Birmingham based South Asian dance company Sampad. From the above link: Audiences can enjoy the rare opportunity of watching Birmingham Royal Ballet’s professional dancers in their daily ballet class accompanied by Company pianist Ross Williams; daily class is essential for every dancer to improve technique, prevent injury and be performance ready. They will then be treated to two solos by Birmingham Royal Ballet’s professional dancers, The Dying
  19. While hunting around for charities supporting performing-arts freelancers, I landed on this, which may be of some help to some struggling UK dance teachers: https://www.dancefund.org.uk/grants/living-costs/ Even if nobody here needs it directly, I'm sure someone will know someone who ...
  20. I’m confused! Are we allowed to go out of County to an Associates class this weekend?? My brain is fried! 🙈😆🙈😆🙈
  21. POB list of streaming performances, again apologies if this has already been posted I couldn't find it when I searched. https://www.operadeparis.fr/en/news/performances-of-the-paris-opera-to-rediscover-online?fbclid=IwAR2897HpAQ5h9NiZPnN7BoT-1TQ0gfcv2arLRxKbXfmrtdug2UjEeoKXlYY At the bottom of the page they say this: "Due to currently unreleased rights, some of these broadcasts are geo-blocked for some territories. The Paris Opera is working on enlarging its broadcasting area." I also can't find a link to donate to POB, has anyone found one yet? If so could
  22. Don Q from Astana is on now. It looks as if it might be working in the UK: https://tengrinews.kz/tv/?fbclid=IwAR117BpR02XQkBC5umKoSsblJhc8SJlJp7bWulzeKnvnCGFgEQcV5PWj1S0
  23. Although we have a separate thread on the recent transmission of the Royal Ballet School's "Peter and the Wolf" , I thought I'd start an overarching thread for all the Royal Opera House's "Our House To Your House" showings. I am, unsurprisingly, loving seeing the Royal Opera/Royal Ballet coproduction of Acis and Galatea again Ed Watson will be making an appearance soon (well, heck, sorry, I've been suffering withdrawal symptoms)
  24. I found the Opera programme highly enjoyable. It was rather strange to see the orchestra using the whole stalls area and to see members of the chorus scattered around the theatre. Clever choices of repertoire that didn't require close contact between the soloists, some that is obviously difficult to achieve in ballet. There was a handsome set - I think.it may have been specially designed for the occasion, but someone on this forum may correct me on this. I most enjoyed the finale with Gerald Finley, orchestra and chorus in the Te Deum from Tosca. Amazing how an artist like Finley, can, in just
