Still going through it but I’ll certainly be signing up for the Osipova/Muntagirov/Hayward/Ball Onegin and if I can manage it the Naghdi/Bonelli/O’Sullivan/Sissens(!) cast too.

... and there are house or full debuts in Swan Lake for Hallberg (with Osipova), Kaneko (with Bonelli) Hayward and Corrales, and Magri and Sambé.

Seems to have become unavailable or page not found. The only thing I could find was Cinema performance listing Cuthbertson and Bracewell in Swan Lake(tasty!)

I've managed to get it to work using https://www.roh.org.uk/events/calendar/2020/01 Then change the 01 to 02, 03, 04 & 05 to get the rest of Onegin & Swan Lake. Or, to save everyone else's time, as I've just stuck them into spreadsheet format for myself, screenshots:

And Swan Lake, as I can't get both screenshots to attach to the one post.

Sorry - there was a typo in my link (I had to write it out rather than paste it in for boring reasons).

@Lizbie1 I'm not sure the typo is the problem, as I tried using your link with the typo corrected & still got a Page not found message.

 

To be honest, I'm a tad disappointed with some of the casting. The leads I most want to see in Onegin don't line up with each other, i.e. Nunez & Cutherbertson and Muntagirov & Bonelli are the ones I'd most like to see but none of them are opposite each other & I'm not sure I can manage to see 4 different casts. I'm disappointed Lamb isn't doing Tatiana. Some of the Gremin casting I find rather puzzling. Clarke & Mock? I would have expected the former at any rate to be doing Lensky.

 

I think Hayward & Corrales might be my first choice for Swan Lake, after their R&J, though I don't know whether they'll be as incredible in something more purely classical. Do we really need Hallberg occupying a leading role slot for the fifth time in a year? O'Hare might as well just make him a permanent principal.

 

No sign of Campbell in either piece. Will he be stuck doing Benno again? No sign of Morera either.

I can find the pages just fine using google (google roh swan lake etc) so think they are accessible to all.

 

They haven’t casted the new Marston/Scarlett yet however.

 

It’s a shame Nuñez/Soares aren’t in Onegin together but the casting looks good. Glad to see Hayward and Kaneko debuting in Swan Lake (as well as Corrales of course).

 

Agree Hallberg may as well be principal at this point! Where’s Morera (and Campbell) - shame these are underused (especially if at the expense of Hallberg in Campbell’s case). Perhaps they’ll be featured in the new mixed bill?

Interesting to note that a rumour I had heard about Onegin - regarding the appearance of a guest male lead - has not come to fruition.

I think the casting is up, though it’s less complete for some dates than others and no roles are given.

I'd completely forgotten the existance of that double bill. I find it difficult to take much of an interest in it until they inform us what the two pieces are going to be, which presumably they'll do before booking opens.

 

I see that now the casts for Onegin & Swan Lake are up on the overview pages for each production so I guess my spreadsheet screenshots above are now surpless to requirements. It's too late now for me to remove them but if a moderator wants to do so please feel free to.

Some fine casting here ... but I think I'm excited by O'Sullivan/Sissens casting as Olga/Lensky as much as I am by anything :)   Can't wait :)

I heard that too and I think that the right decision has been made (i.e. to give a company dancer the opportunity). It is one thing to bring in guests when there is a shortage but, in this case, there was clearly not.

In fact, Kevin O'Hare has also been brave enough to 'rest' favoured performers in order to cast two new Tatianas as well as two new Onegins. The 'mix' of experienced Onegins and Tatianas with newcomers to those roles is felicitous, in my view.

And, as has been pointed out, there is some exciting casting of Olga and Lensky too.

Who is the other new Tatiana? I know Naghdi is but I'd asumed that Nunez, Osipova & Cuthbertson had all already done the role before.

Lauren Cuthbertson will be new to the role. In 2015, Nunez danced with Soares and Osipova's Onegin was Matthew Golding.

Thanks. I didn't realise she hadn't done it before. Did she do Olga previously, like Naghdi did, or did the previous runs coincide with her periods off injured/ill?

Last run, she was due to dance Tatyana, but it was during her most recent long-term injury, and Itziar Mendizabal replaced her.

But why, o why is Morera not dancing Tatiana with Bonelli when it may well have been the last chance to see them together in this. And Clarke as Gremin?

 

And where is Campbell 😞

Yes Dawnstar lets keep your screen shots they are really clear ...Thankyou!

I forgot the role of Benno is quite extended in this Swan Lake so might be interesting to see some of the casting for that role.

I see Sambe has only one Swan Lake as Siegfried so perhaps he is cast as Benno too? 

I will be very much looking forward to the Hayward Corrales Swan Lake and seeing Sissens in the Lensky role.

Thanks @JNC & @LinMM

 

I can see most of the casting for the new Marston/Scarlett by going in to each performance individually via the calendar but it's not currently showing up going in to each performance from the overall production page. Goodness only knows why this is the case! At present there is no second cast up for the Scarlett, hence the blanks below. (Pure speculation but I wonder if maybe Campbell might do the McRae role in the second cast? Given he's currently looking chronically underemployed. Again!)

Magri/Sambe & Kaneko/Bonelli do actually have another performance each but they're a School performance & Welcome performance respectively so I didn't include them in my list, given it's not as if I or, probably, anyone else reading this thread will be able to attend them.

Thanks Dawnstar that is good to know as I think it feels better that the newbies get a second shot at it at least ...in the same season.

After seeing her Juliet I was hoping to see Beatriz Stix-Brunell in another lead role as she was so stunning artistically and technically. She’s lit up the stage in everything I’ve seen her in, even just in supporting roles. Am I missing something or is she not cast much? What can I see her in this season?
