I mean how glorious is this? Personally I see Hayward or Stix-Brunell in this - sorry to deviate but I couldn’t resist...o

Oh yes it's glorious - as was she. Thank you for posting this, it made me smile.....

In what way is the ‘Manon’ PDD a tribute to Fonteyn?  

 

It’s not. The Rose Adagio is the tribute to Margot Fonteyn.

I wish! But if there is a live relay/dvd for the next staging, I guarantee they won't have it. Nunez will probably be given it considering she has danced the role before. Cuthbertson has danced it too before (I think?)...but we know Nunez will be picked over her. Anyways, sorry to direct us off the main topic! Just had to add my two cents while I'm perusing the forum updates. Ha!

Hmmm - it’s the way that the performance is listed that made it look like the ‘Manon’ PDD was part of the Tribute to Fonteyn - thank you bangorballetboy.

Ondine pdd and R&J balcony pdd are part of tribute to Margot as well.

 

Manon pdd sounds odd if it is a part of tribute programme.

This could be marketing Japanese ballet fan to visit Covent Garden next season? 

 

McGregor, Wheeldon and Scarlett works were wiped out, because full Winter Dreams is going to be performed instead of farewell pdd.

I think that someone has posted the casting on here. It’s Muntagirov on the 28th and Hirano on the 29th.

Lucky Japan.
