I could have done without all the hectic camerawork, though.  Made me feel quite queasy at times! 

 

But isn't it great to see a country's national TV channels (I assume Rai 2 is terrestrial?) celebrating its homegrown ballet talent like that?

This was a production for live Italian television in the maxi 1200 square meter studio of the former Milan trade fair.

Or were you just trying out your fouettes again ?

Thanks Stevie ... what fun!

Almost as good as watching Liverpool beat Barcelona 4:0 ?

Fingers crossed for the final.

Elisa Badenes also danced this with Alexander Jones a year ago at the ROH Spring Gala.  It went down very well - great fun.

This piece was created on Kramer and Tewsley and they had a lot of input on the choreography.

 

And only in the Stuttgart version it has the cow in the background! You can hear me laugh on that video somewhere in the background...  😜

Sorry to disagree with you all - but I just hate this 'ballet' - it doesn't amuse me at all, I find it predictable and cringe worthy.

I really like this.  As with The Trocks, the comedy works because the dancing is so good 😊.

If you want to dig around, these are the pairings that I know of for Grand PDD on youtube

  • Alicia Amatriain and Jason Reilly (2 versions)
  • Elisa Carrillo Cabrera and Igor Kolb
  • Uliana Lopatkina and Marat Shemiunov
  • Julia Kramer and Robert Tewsley
  • Alicia Amatriain and Roberto Bolle
  • Elisa Badenes and Roberto Bolle
  • Lauren Cuthbertson and Alexander Jones

If you don't like Le Grand Pas de Deux, there is always "The Mistake Waltz" from The Concert by Jerome Robbins

Why are the men in boiler suits?  Has there been a costume change over the years? ;)
