The Royal Ballet’s Spring and Summer programmes 2021

As a 'follower' of many RB dancers on Instagram, I think that I am picking up hints that the summer programme might have three different programmes and, if so, surely they will announce them (hopefully with casting) on the 13th April.

 

It was confirmed yesterday that Royal Ballet dancers will again feature in a gala at Athelhampton House -11th and 12th September.

Thank you !  Never quite sure at the moment if what the dancers are playing about with is their personal wish list or something for the stage.  I’ve seen Valentino Zucchetti is choreographing something ... but that could be for Draft Works in the Linbury.
 

As for casting ... whilst that info would be nice, I’m so starved of the live experience I don’t really mind!!!

 

I’m following Athelhampton on IG with interest .... hoping the cheap seats are still affordable 😉

Didn't the announcement from the ROH mention three ballet programmes for the spring / summer season? With Petipa mentioned for one of them.

 

The draft works was also announced to be streamed in early May. So they could be rehearsing a wide range of things at the moment.

It did.  From the 10 March announcement: 

The Royal Ballet is thrilled to return to live performances with three programmes of works ranging from Crystal Pite to Marius Petipa.

The mixed bill with Beauty Act 3 sounds enticing! I’m wondering if US citizens with proof of vaccination can travel to the U.K.? 🤔 

 

Quarantine still required at the moment but who knows by the end of June?

Any mention of ticket buying restrictions yet? Are we only allowed two tickets per programme again? 


For our Spring/Summer Programme we are limiting tickets to a maximum of 4 tickets per performanceand these will be allocated in singles and pairs only, until further notice. In line with current guidance, we ask that you only attend performances with individuals from your own household or bubble. Details of our catering offer and how to book will be sent to ticket bookers nearer their performance dates. Thank you for your understanding.”

 

this was in the email I received

I make it 24 performances in total -  pleased we are getting a pretty full schedule and choice of dates, as well as a live stream of each programme.

Some interesting casting!  Good to see various role debuts, including several roles for younger (indeed some of the youngest!) members of the Company....

I would love for there to be something in place for you by then!

 

Does anyone know what divertissements are likely to be included?

Those looks like amazing programs! 

Does someone know if the live streams will available for a month like the Nutcracker-that-never-was was supposed to be?

Good question... I don't have the answer  but others may.  

Welcome to the Forum by the way!

We could run some bets on this - starting with The Voices of Spring pas de deux!!!!

 

I'm loving the fact that the RB's announcement has resulted in a reawakening of balletcoforum! Some exciting casting with opportunities  for so many dancers at all levels.

Erm, we haven't exactly been asleep, capybara :)  Dozing a little, perhaps, but definitely not asleep!

 

I was seriously seriously hoping for Apollo - and also wondering if the Petipa might turn out to be a socially distanced Kingdom of the Shades, but apparently not.

Actually it looks as if they  may only be available on the one specified day, going by the blurb for each one  on the website..."There will be a livestream of the performance on ......... Watch via ROH Stream".
