And here is the missing link for next season at Munich 🙃

https://www.staatsoper.de/en/20-21/ballett.html


Thank you for this link Angela.   I’ve no idea what happened to the original announcement and IG link that I posted.  
 

There seem to have been quite a few glitches on the technological side at Munich today.   (It’s not just the ROH that aren’t well served by their web team 🙄)
 

I’d be grateful if a moderator could remove my now blank post linked to a now non-existent IG post.   Thank you

In English (google translate):


À JOUR - Contemporary Choreographies 2020 celebrates its premiere at this year's Munich Opera Festival!  One of the 4 choreographers will be the young Englishwoman Charlotte Edmonds, who among other things has already choreographed for the @royaloperahouse.  Calvin Richardson, Philippe Kratz and Yoshito Sakuraba will complete the evening with @charlotte_edmonds.  The first tickets for the performances in the Prinzregententheater (July 11 - 14, 20) will be available tomorrow (and only tomorrow!) When the #BSOFestspiele is sold at the box office.  You can find more information on the first day of sale on our homepage (link in organic).  #Ballet #premiere #BSBajour #femalechoreographer #choreographer #risingstar #bsofestspiele #vorfreude #tickets #vorverkauf #shopping

Amidst all the bad news, Stuttgart's principal dancer Alicia Amatriain had a baby girl yesterday. The father is soloist Alexander McGowan.

The whole Stuttgart Ballet is in self-quarantine at home because after a recent tour, one of the staff was tested positive with Corona. Neither Amatrain nor McGowan were on the tour, so they and their baby are safe.

Nice to hear some lovely news at this time.

Also Sergei Polunin (permanent guest with the Bayerisches Staatsballet) recently announced the birth of his first child! What a blessing all these happy news in these sad and uncertain days ❤

Please note that Bavarian State Opera are now streaming JEWELS on Saturday 21/3 instead of Swan Lake I think because the show isn't actually being performed to be live streamed.  This is the Jewels that was live streamed last year ( I remember being really cross with Somova for wearing her own Mariinsky tutu for Diamonds - it was so old, greying and grubby looking which ruined the overall look as BSB had all beautiful shiny new costumes - Somova stuck out like a sore thumb yikes!)

Is anybody going to buy the magazine at £8.99 when they could have it as part of the Sunday Times for just £2.90?

Please can any of our German specialists confirm whether today's announcement from Mrs Merkel means that the rest of the season is now off? Does the decision about large gatherings - how large is large? - get passed on to each region to implement as it chooses, as seemed to be the case when things were being shut down? (I'm assuming they'll all comply anyway.)
