Also, I missed in my first skim through the programme that Kizzy Matiakis gives her farewell performance with the company in the title role - which she created -  in Blixen on April 22nd.

Two full-length Bournonvilles. I’m wondering if the new Sylphide will see a return to the traditional staging?

Yes, also wondering about La Sylphide, although not sure how the previous staging was or who it was staged by - maybe Jane could enlighten?

 

Curious to see that Peter Martins gets a chance.

Well, Peter Martins is a Dane .... and he did that piece - Zakouski - a brief adagio if I remember correctly - for Hubbe ... then a NYCB principal ... and Margaret Tracey  -  for a gala (if I remember correctly) - ... so it would make sense that Hubbe might want to add it to a mixed programme.   I seem to recall it was - of its kind - quite charming ... (and I say that not having been a massive fan of Martins' choreography).

Isn’t it a tad curious that the current NYCB digital season doesn’t include any works by Martins, who led the troupe & created many ballets for over 35 years? Back to Sylphide: The current un-traditional version premiered in 2014...also by Hubbe. It’s very spare black-white with Madge being a male character in love with James. Rather edgy, that I recall. So will Hubbe go even edgier or will he revert to the traditional storyline? I selfishly pray for the latter.

I think the Sylphide is just the awful one that Nikolaj Hubbe inflicted on Copenhagen in 2014., not a newer one than that.

 

Here's Zakouski

ok my mistake apparently the Sylphide isnt the 2014 one, it's ANOTHER new one by Hubbe, which he described in the press conference as ""La Sylphide, my choreography and my staging".

The company has just announced that John Neumeier's Mahler's 3rd Symphony will replace La Bayadere next season, opening on May 19th 2021. It was due to have its Danish premiere in March this year, and was lost to the lockdown with only 2 days to go till the first night, to the huge disappointment of the dancers, who clearly had a lot invested in it.
