Margarita thanks her mother Annarella on Instagram today, but that might be a turn of phrase.

She will be only 16 when she starts in Munich.

 

 

 

I also read in an interview that Margarita is Annarella's daughter. It's surprising to see both of them being hired at this level (especially her, so young!) but I look forward to seeing what happens with their careers.

At Hamburg Ballet, Hélène Bouchet has announced that she will retire from the stage at the end of this year. Her farewell performance will be in one of the “Christmas Oratorios” in December. She came to Hamburg in 1998 and was promoted to principal in 2005. Bouchet will return to her hometown Cannes, either to open a ballet school or to design fashion for children.

 

A new principal ballerina will come from the Royal Danish Ballet: Ida Praetorius moves to Hamburg in January 2022. She has worked in Denmark with Neumeier in the past.

Word from Denmark is that she's just doing a year in Hamburg. Neumeier has always liked her and cast her in his ballets so maybe she's just going for his last year.

 

(And of course Copenhagen and Hamburg are only about as far apart as London and Leeds so she's not going to be losing touch!)

Bought my ticket yesterday and I am very greatful for this glimpse into the program which, by the way, I coudn't find anywhere. But I really wanted to see Nachtmerrie with Friedemann & Elisa and am very happt that I will get a chance to finally see Mayara Magri live - I really love her charisma. Also very happy with the other contributors on this list!!!

Berlin State Ballet announces the return of Polina Semionova after one year off. She will be dancing in "Voices", a creation by David Dawson to Max Richter's music piece with the same name. Her part is called "Mercy", her partner is Alejandro Virelles. "Voices" is part of a double bill with the solo "Citizen Nowhere" by Dawson, danced by Olaf Kollmannsperger.
