RB New Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (Medusa) RB mixed bill

Recommended Posts

Takada's making her debut in Medusa tomorrow - could that be why there's been a change?   (If so, I'm guessing there might be a switcharound of casts for all the Golden Hour performances).  Or conceivably she's been taken out of Golden Hour completely to concentrate on Medusa?  What does the casting for the others say?

Earlier today I checked tomorrow's casting and all was normal, now Yasmine Naghdi is in the first ballet, and Natalia Osipova and Matthew Ball in Medusa, I was looking forward to seeing Akane Takada and Marcelino Sambe?

 

Sambe is still there in Flight Pattern. Let's hope Akane is OK  for the later performances.....

No longer...that is the point, unfortunately. She wasn't ever dancing tonight.

She's still showing for later in the run, though.  Possibly the second cast hadn't had enough rehearsal time (remember the initial performances of The Winter's Tale?)

Maybe, although I am rather concerned she is not now dancing "Within The Golden Hour"  tomorrow night either...

Please, there's now a thread in "Performances Seen" for comment on the real thing.  It's no longer News.

Another thought occurred to me later, that possibly they might have wanted the first cast to get another performance under their belts before the live broadcast.

I rang the box office this morning to see if they had any information about this cast change. The lady I  spoke to checked, but could not find any information about it - she seemed a bit surprised  about that  (as they are normally provided with information relating to cast changes).

I have now been informed that unfortunately Akane Takada is unwell, hence the cast change tonight. Best wishes for her speedy recovery!
