  1. I saw on YouTube that the full performance [Broken Wings] starring Tamara Rojo will be streamed on 22nd April at 7pm. Excited to see this ballet again!
  2. The Allegro Youtube link is here. What a way to start the day. A defining reason for a 72 hour smile .... (Well, for me at any rate )
  3. I don’t know if this has been discussed elsewhere, so I am starting a new thread. I hope that is ok. I’m sure we have all been thinking about how theatres might open when they can. Timing of course is unknown at this stage. I realise it’s totally disheartening for performers to dance to an empty auditorium. So I am assuming that is not an option being considered. The point of my post is to ask if anyone knows whether theatres are considering opening with a partial ‘socially distanced’ audience ... say 1/2 or even less capacity? (I am assuming masks for audience members will be compulsory, and people coughing etc will have to leave.) And then I also wonder .... if theatres can top this up by live-streaming performances at a cost? I know I’d pay say £20 to watch often. E.g. I would have wanted to watch each of the RB and ENB Swan Lake casts at least once. That would go some way to compensating for missing out on tickets for in-house seats. I would still hope to attend as many live performances as ‘before’. Thoughts?
  4. 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:
  5. "Napoli" from Denmark with Alexandra Lo Sardo and Alban Lendorf https://www.dr.dk/drtv/program/napoli-_-ballet-fra-det-kongelige-teater_178143
  6. Streaming of "Giselle" with Natalia Osipova and Nikita Chetverikov from Perm Opera and Ballet Theatre can be watched now. It might be available until late afternoon tomorrow.
  7. 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 ...
  8. The Stuttgart production with new sets and costumes by Jürgen Rose will be online for 24 hours from April 11th, 18.00 CET to April 12th, 18.00 CET on Stuttgart Ballet's Youtube Chanel https://www.youtube.com/c/dasstuttgarterballett The cast is the premiere cast at Stuttgart, with Friedemann Vogel (Rudolf), Elisa Badenes (Mary), Miriam Kacerova (Elisabeth), Alicia Amatriain (Larisch), Diana Ionescu (Stephanie), Anna Osadcenko (Mizzi), Marcia Haydée (Sophie) and Egon Madsen (Franz Josef).
  9. Not sure if it's been mentioned elsewhere but San Francisco Ballet are currently uploading a video each week - this week it's Anima Animus choreographed by David Dawson with music by Ezio Bosso - well worth watching, I think it's absolutely sublime (for me it was the highlight of their visit to London last year). https://www.sfballet.org/sf-ballet-home/ The ballet changes on Fridays (overnight UK time). The filming is superb (I think because the recordings are for the archives) - the camera only zooms in and out depending on how many dancers are on stage and the shot is always full length - some other directors could take note!
  10. I try to fast forward through the Sky Arts channels from time to time to set Sky+ for any upcoming ballet, but I inevitably miss out from time to time! I've just missed all but the last 2 minutes of 'Bolero'. I was just wondering if it might be a good idea to warn eachother of anything we know that is coming up?
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. The full version of the recent production of Mariinsky, 'The Four Seasons', from Mariinsky TV is available on youtube channel. This starring the amazing Ekaterina Kondaurova and the Vivaldi score re orchestrated by Max Richter.
  14. This is next week's contribution from New Adventures: https://mailchi.mp/new-adventures/october-2725030?e=4c93d522b6
  15. Finally got to watch John Neumeier's Illusions – like Swan Lake danced by Hamburg Ballet (thank you Video on Demand) and its really good, normally I am a bit wary of changing stuff in classics but I think Neumeier made it work , it had its own internal logic and did not go against the music score. I've only seen video clips and photos of it so it was nice to see it in full. I liked how it weaved the actual ballet in with the life of King Ludwig II of Bavaria and his retreat into fairy tales, Jirí Bubenícek was great as the lead character, danced very sensitively. I am not familiar with the choreography of Neumeier, he seems much more big in Europe but his choreography is very dramatic and intense. Just had to articulate my thoughts about it.
  16. Perm Opera Ballet are currently streaming 'La Petite Fadette' on youtube. https://youtu.be/8nkhTvB3ySA
  17. Don Q from Astana is on now. It looks as if it might be working in the UK: https://tengrinews.kz/tv/?fbclid=IwAR117BpR02XQkBC5umKoSsblJhc8SJlJp7bWulzeKnvnCGFgEQcV5PWj1S0
  18. 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.
  19. I don’t know about “y’all,” but I’m totally pumped for tonight’s SUPER GISELLE HOUSE PARTY to view Pacific NW Ballet’s historically-informed Giselle (film of a fabulous 2014 performance starring Kaori Nakamura and Jerome Tisserand). It happens tonight at 7:00 pm Pacific time (10 pm Eastern US)...late for friends in the UK & Europe, I realize...maybe folks can access it for a while after? Access requires a donation - “of any amount” - whatever one can give. Instructions for accessing the show will be emailed to donors today, ahead of the House Party...not just the full ballet but some extras! Let’s party tonight!!! 🎉 🎊 🎈 🎊 🎉 Link for more info, via PNB’s FB: https://m.facebook.com/PNBallet/photos/a.439537898951/10157709661123952/?type=3&source=48
  20. Whilst the theatres in Kazakhstan are closed and the capital Astana is in lock-down, Kazakh TV has a schedule of broadcasting opera and ballet performances online, but they are only shown once, not available for repeated viewing. Kazakhstan is 6 hours ahead of the UK, but will be five hours ahead, after the clocks go forward in the UK tonight. The National Ballet Company performs at the Astana Opera House and was founded about ten years ago. Seven years ago, it moved into the brand new theatre and school complex in Astana. Astana, a new city, is the capital of Kazakhstan - and was renamed Nursultan last year, in honour of President Nursultan Nazabayev, when he retired. Most Kazakhs still refer to it as Astana. The old capital was Almaty. There are three ballet companies in Kazakhstan. The National Ballet Company, which has been directed by Altynai Asylmuratova for the last seven years, has yet to appear in the UK. The Astana Ballet has a more contemporary repertoire and appeared at the Linbury Theatre last September. The Abay Kazakh State Ballet Theatre is a more traditional ballet company based in Almaty and appeared at the Coliseum last November. I have just watched a transmission of Giselle by the National Ballet Company, featuring as Giselle the daughter of Alytnai Asylmuratova and her husband Konstantin Zaklinsky. There are opera and ballet transmissions. The next ballet transmission is La Bayadere on Tuesday, 1 April at 19.00 hours (14.00 hours UK time). The link is here https://tengrinews.kz/tv/#
  21. If you've been visiting this site via a computer, you will probably already have noticed that a Calendar has appeared on the right-hand side of the page, listing streaming dates for various items of interest. It's also at the bottom of the "page" on smartphones if you scroll far enough. (It was very annoying, constantly missing out on things because they were posted all over the place and it was difficult to keep track.) It's been put together in rather a hurry, and we're still playing with it, but do feel free to add anything which is on for only a limited length of time - I don't think you can break it More details here:
  22. I'm new to ballet in middle life. I don't know much about it and only have a few weeks of trying it out (Baroque dance is more my thing, but only have a few years experience). Anyway, someone pointed me to ENB's watch party of Broken Wings this week. I'd thought I'd give it a go but wasn't sure what to expect. But wow, I mean WOW!. Moving, comic, sad and sometimes disturbing - completely blown away by it and want to watch it again. But can't! Just very cool and gets me to want to explore more.
  23. Self-explanatory, I think: https://www.theplace.org.uk/place-online?dm_i=1T9U,6UJV0,B4PDQE,RGM7C,1
  24. If you are in need of a Sylvia fix, there is a free streaming of this production today 7.00 pm Vienna time. Available for 24 hours. However you need to register and set up a login and password. Then purchase a free ticket. A little bit fiddly but worth it. https://www.culturall.com/ticket/ists/performance_schedule.mc?view=month&year=2020&type=month_menu&process_mode=normal A big day with Mayerling as well. Might be a bit of a juggling act.
  25. *Excited* I just received a newsletter update that Ballet Black are airing some of their performances online - each one will be available for seven days then the new one will be posted. They're also airing Beginner Adult Ballet Classes on their instagram page @originalballetblack, starting Sunday 26th April, 12pm. Website: https://balletblack.co.uk/bb-on-film/ For anyone interested, the Programme: - Now to 25th April: House of Dreams (2017) House of Dreams is a sparkling quartet exploring themes of love and loss set to the delicate music of Claude Debussy with costume designs from Ballet Black’s long-term collaborator, Yukiko Tsukamoto. - 26th April to 2nd May: Captured (2012) A four-hander by Martin Lawrance characterised by intricate detail and propulsive energy; Captured ebbs and flows to the fiery emotion of Lawrance’s edgy choreography, set to a Shostakovich string quartet. - 3rd May to 10th May: Ingoma (2019) Ingoma (song) is by company dancer and choreographer Mthuthuzeli November, who has received nominations from the Critics’ Circle National Dance Awards (Best Emerging Artist) and the Olivier Awards (Best New Dance Production). Ingoma is a fusion of ballet, African dance and singing. Ingoma portrays a milestone in South African history and imagines the struggles of black South African miners and their families in 1946 – when 60,000 of them took courageous strike action, and is inspired by Song of the Pick, a painting by South African artist, Gerard Sekoto (1913-1993), and the poem, Blue Head (2018) written specially for this ballet by Asisipho Ndlovu Malunga.
