Estonian National Ballet - Rosalinda

Recommended Posts

Estonian National Ballet will be streaming a performance of Ronald Hynd's production of "Rosalinda" on their Facebook page (Rahvusooper Estonia) on Saturday 23 May 2020 at 5pm UK time.  This is based on the Strauss Operetta, "Die Fledermaus" and was in the repertoire of English National Ballet for many years.

I've never seen this ballet so it will be an unexpected treat. I love Ronald Hynd's Merry Widow so will really look forward to seeing this. Thanks for highlighting it, Irmgard.

Well I've finished watching Rosalinde and I really enjoyed it. OK it's not going to set the world on fire character or possibly choreograph wise but it was a very pleasant 90 minutes watch. It had great Art Deco sets and costumes; very colourful. the opening of the act 2 ballroom set got a deserved round of applause. The filming was fine apart from the wide angled shots making light costumes completely white; close ups were fine. I can see why it's not done as often as the Merry Widow but if you just want a light, coronavirus free 90 minutes it's your ballet!
