Not sure if this is the right place to post this news, in which case a moderator will move it, but I don't think anyone has listed the Bolshoi  Live ballets to be seen next season.

They will be:

                    2019

 

 

                     Raymonda, 27 October

                        Corsaire,   17 November

                       Nutcracker, 15 December

 

                     2020

 

                      Giselle,         26 January

                       Swan Lake,  23 January

                     Romeo and Juliet, 29 March

                        Jewels,     19 April

 

Apologies if someone has already posted.

Sorry for the error, Geoff, of course its February, I was typing from untidy notes! 

Bruce, I've not seen full season, either. I got this info from the French organisation that shows the Bolshoi Live, Pathe Live (via danses avec la plume). The image was ridiculously obscured, making it difficult to read, but I think the 3 ballets that are not repeats are Raymonda, Nutcracker and Romeo and Juliet. So it looks, Geoff, as if 4 are repeats and, Bruce, that the other 3 form part of the season next year.

Oh good.  Bliss.  I was hoping they'd repeat the full-length Le Corsaire.  Owing to the time it was scheduled and its length, I had to skip the last act last time!

 

(Now all we need, Bruce, is for them to magic up a repeat of the Esmeralda we missed at The Ritzy all those years ago because of technical problems!)

Very disappointed  with this schedule. With the exception of Raymonda,  rarely performed, there appears to be three encores, R&J, Nutcracker and Corsaire and three others which have been done to death in recent years, Giselle, Swan Lake and Jewell's. Time to shake the bag up.

It's interesting that they can decide this schedule before the New Season has even been announced.

Does anyone know who is dancing the lead role for the Bolshoi Swan Lake live streaming on the 23rd Feb 2020. The cast sheet has been on their web page for some time, but it only shows the lead casting for the middle two performances. The first and last are missing.

The cast sheet is there, you have to click on all dates. It lists  Artem Ovcharenko as Siegfried but Odette/Odile is blank. I’ve just realised what you mean Stevie, having looked at all four performances and that you weren’t asking about Siegfried. Sorry.

Olga Smirnova. Every Bolshoi ballerina that is being broadacst is named Olga Smirnova. They all have the same name and surname, and they all look the same.

Well certainly the first two live performances in the current season starred Olga Smirnova and she did look alike in both. Good as she is, I do like to see some variety in the selection of principles, so I would prefer to see one of the two listed for the middle two performances. It is strange that with only nine days until the live streaming, they have not named the principle ballerina far the first and last performances. My bet was on Krisanova, although not through any preference. I have emailed them twice, with no reply, maybe we will have to attend to find out.

Well that's one we can eliminate from the Bolshoi cast sheet. Brings it down to five contender remaining in my calculations.


Ovcharenko is named as Siegfried.  But I believe Smirnova usually dances with Belyakov or Chudin.  Intrigued to see how this one plays out....

My guess is that is should be Srepanova but she pulled out of performances in late January and they are not certain if she will be ready in time.

That may explain the late announcement. If they are giving her maximum  recovery time with a possible stand in lined up. If she's still recovering, then slim chance only for performing a week tomorrow. Two names required for 21/2 and 23/2 from following, unless any can be added or eliminated.

Are any encore screenings of Swan Lake planned for the London area? I am completely stuck next Sunday so hope to find another screening later in the week or whatever. Help please!

The Bolshoi doesn't do encore screening, Geoff.

 

I have found encore screenings of this upcoming Swan Lake all over England Alison (in the week following). But I have not as yet been able to identify any in the London area so hope somebody is cleverer at searching than I am!

She took away Belyakov from Stepanova only recently, after those two had a series of sensational duets together. I went to Moscow to see some of them, I can confirm that those two together this can be magic.

Well, well.  Certainly I've never seen any in the London area before, presumably because there are so many Picturehouses that it's not deemed necessary.  Be my guest to go on searching - have you tried the Pathé website?

there are some screenings that are not on the 23rd but the closest one I can find to London is in Dorking. Not very close!
