Royal Ballet (ROH) season announcement 2019/20

Recommended Posts

Any idea when we might expect the ROH 19/20 season to be announced? I've never known it so late as this year.

If I recall aright, in recent years DanceTabs has tweeted the main points as the briefing continued, and I dare say he may do so once again.

Sorry Penelope, my student daughter is *longing* for Fille to return so for her sake, I hope it does! ☺️

 

All I want is Onegin.

Well ENB's show at the RAH in June might have to satisfy your craving 🙂

Wonderful to see mention of a 'new Marston' ... 'About time' I can hear a goodly many mutter .... Also note that the number '24' has disappeared from Ratmansky's Preludes ... It had much to recommend it in its first go ... but (I felt) did over-reach.  It notes that it is to be 're-imagined'.  This sounds a good move - especially given all the stellar young talents that now abound in the Company.

I can’t believe they are reviving the dire Live Fire Excercise.  As it’s with Corybantic Games, unless the tbc is something amazing I will be saving money on this bill!  

 

Very happy about many of the other ones.

Looks as if the whole programme is available via the calendar link above, month by month.

Can't see Nutcracker - shurely some mistake?

But Sleeping Beauty instead. Good.

The lovely triple bill of Concerto, Enigma Variations, Raymonda Act 3 will be a treat.

Interesting to note that there will be no major guest (Russian or otherwise) ballet company in Summer 2020 ... as opera extends through August (new tradition???).   With the Coliseum showing the musical Hairspray between April and end July 2020 it suggests limited London opportunity for such.

Some juicy operatic tid bits with DiDonato in Agrippina, Florez in Werther, Kaufmann in Fidelio, Stemme in Elektra and Netrebko in August Tosca in the mix.

Wonder if that (e.g., Manon) might mark Watson's farewell?  Assume Oneign will be Soares'.    Wonder too if the latter might mark any other farewells.   Will Osipova dance with Hallberg in that as she did in Munich?  Part of me hopes not - although at the LBC talk last night he seemed to suggest that there would be other such jointures on the horizon.  'The Royal ballet gave me Osipova' he said.  It's just that there are so many fine Company rising talents at the moment.

I’m piecing all the info together ....so apart from a snippet of Monotones, the only Ashton is Enigma? Wow! That’s harsh...

And also NO BALANCHINE .... Not a drop (and there are 420 ballets to choose from).  Sad.  

 

Oh, well ... At least Acosta gives us T&V for BRB.

I'm at one with Bruce Wall in saying "About time" at the news that Cathy Marston has her first main-stage commission for next February.  Her subject is, no surprise, another strong female one in Jacqueline du Pré and, as so often before, I note that Edward Kemp will be involved in creating the scenario.  Philip Feeney has also served her well before in developing scores for her work, and the interest here will no doubt be in incorporating significant cello pieces.  And does the RB have a dancer who might cope with a bit of the Elgar Concerto, for example?
