I am so glad I crawled out of bed - that was a really beautiful Paquita to wake up to, and there is much more to come! But, again, so sad to see the curtain calls to an empty auditorium, though I am sure I could hear violin bows being tapped in approval.

If you enjoyed BRB’s recent performances of Vicente Nebrada’s romantic piano ballet Our Waltzes (Nuestros Valses), you won’t want to miss Nebrada’s Arabesque as the latest virtual offering from Ballet Hispanico (NYC), commencing  Wed, 13 January,   6:30pm Eastern US time. Arabesque is set to  Granados’ piano pieces Danzas Espanolas.

I know a lot of people here (including myself) enjoy Cranko's Oneign ... so you might be interested in the segment from the NBoC (National Ballet of Canada's) digital season just released.  You can see Lunkina/McKie in that a piece from that work.

Radio 4’s “Something Understood” on the subject of Obsession has an interesting small segment with Deborah  Bull on  what makes a ballet dancer.


Deborah Bull was very good. The alignment of mug handles at the end made me smile and I’m happy to hold my hand up to such fastidiousness.

Some tantalising news from Norwegian National Ballet. They are going to stream two separate performances of Onegin, as far as I understand from google translate with different casts. Sadly the text says this is only available in Norway, but in case anyone reading this is based there, more info here https://operaen.no/en/Productions/onegin/

 

Just to add apparently this is a production with newly designed costumes.

Forgot to mention costumes!

La Scala are streaming a new performance of Giselle on 30th January at 8pm Italian time. Not clear at the moment whether it will be geo-blocked, but some of their internal streams last year were put on YouTube shortly after so fingers crossed!

 

There are different leads in the two acts - Martina Arduino and Claudio Coviello in Act 1, Nicoletta Manni and Timofej Andrijashenko in Act 2.
