Monday 3rd May, 8 pm ITV1:

Darcey Bussell appears on Alan Titchmarsh: Spring into Summer to talk about bringing dance back to the nation this summer, according to my TV guide.

 

It's repeated, I think sometime this weekend, in the morning.  Did anyone watch?  Was it worth watching?

I thought she spoke very well - it's only quite a short programme with lots of items. Outdoors at first at the start and then in the "garden shed" to talk ballet later in the programme.

BTW, since we're on the subject of ballet, Sunday (i.e. today) morning at 6 am on Sky Arts, we have Sir Simon Rattle conducting "the three Stravinsky ballets", i.e. Firebird, Petrushka and The Rite of Spring.  It's repeated sometime in the early hours of Monday.

As I’d imagine. Why do they insist on showing these third rate dance programmes on TV? This one will no doubt go the way of all the other recent offerings (Strictly excluded, of course).

They seem to want to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

Perhaps not the right place for this, but a very short BBC piece about a Muslim ballet school in London. Instead of working with music, they work with poetry instead- something I’d not thought about before: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-london-57360361

Thanks Rowan.  We also have this lined up for tomorrow’s links.  I would have been interested to know why music can’t be used.

SkyArts are showing the Australian Merry Widow (again!) Wed 7th July 7.15am-9am

Also Royal Ballet Sleeping Beauty with Nunez/Muntagirov Sat 10 Jul 6-8.30am. This will nicely whet my appetite for seeing them do the last act on stage at the ROH the next day.

I don't see those listings...are you referring to Sky Arts Freeview or something else?...also do you mean Kaneko, rather than Naghdi, with Bonelli, as per the last offering?

Yes, thanks. Sorry I was confused as I didn't clock that oncnp's post  was correcting  an earlier post as to the casting for the current mixed programme.

Sorry, I was getting mixed up with the livestream casting. We'll  be seeing them doing SB in that and Winter Dreams pas de deux on Sunday.  Still wonderful!

I've just noticed that Sky Arts showed Spartacus early this morning. Given the unearthly time (6.20) I assume it was ballet. Did anyone see it? And if so, who was dancing? Presumably they'll show it again, whatever it was, so we can then look out for it. That's assuming the listing is correct. The awards programme was scheduled to be shown yesterday, 9-11 am, but instead it was yet more Tales of the Unexpected.

Yes, I noticed, too.  Drat, I'd thought it was tomorrow.  My guess would be that it was the Australian Ballet version - perhaps Bluebird or someone could confirm?

 

Incidentally, at 9 pm this evening, Why do we dance? presented by Akram Khan, followed by Northern Ballet's Casanova, which has already been mentioned.
