TTP Blog on the RB La Bayadere


Recommended Posts

ToThePointe has looked back on some wonderful performances by the Royal Ballet in La Bayadere in November.  She has brought them all back to life for me and, accompanied by some lovely Bill Cooper photos,  the piece has revived some very pleasant memories!

Absolutely love this retrospective! The thing about tothepointemagazine is that the writer reviews on the basis of seeing more than one cast whereas the 'critics' usually concentrate on only one performance - usually the first night or the cinema relay. That makes what is said on that website far 'richer' reading and very enjoyable to boot.

Good point Capybara, and I agree.  We get a very well-rounded view here.

Sim I can't find the original BCF discussion thread for the Royal Ballet's  performances of  La Bayadere last November. I remember that it was closed for further discussion  after a time, but has it now  been removed  completely for some reason? 

 

For example this link no longer works  http://www.balletcoforum.com/topic/18748-the-royal-ballet-la-bayadère-london-november-2018/

How strange. I tried this link and two others without success. I then tried a manual search through the index pages and, as you said, it had disappeared. I then came back here only to find that the link you posted above now works and that what was missing is now in place again!

 

Wonders, I suppose, will never cease...!

Anyway, thanks to those responsible for the restoration! If only the ROH could restore missing website pages as quickly.....
