They're also showing Northern Ballet Casanova Mon 26 July 10.15pm to 12.10am. (Note the adult times!)

 

 

Yet it's also being repeated tomorrow at the "usual" time - 7 am.

SkyArts are also showing the RB 2013 Alice in Wonderland Mon 2nd Aug at 10.15pm-12.25am.

Channel4 is also showing a fascinating sounding documentary on Tues 3rd Aug at 11.05pm, entitled The Boy who can't stop dancing. It is about teenager  Tom Oakley who is obsessed with dancing and who applies to the Rambert Dance School, despite suffering from cystic fibrosis.

Thanks Joan, we've linked a couple of articles about Tom Oakley recently so I must look out for this one.

Yes it sounds really interesting, not to mention inspirational, in these dark times.  I noticed one of your links after I posted about the doc.

Terrific, inspirational doc about the young Liverpudlian, Tom Oakley who's ambition is to join the Ballet Rambert despite living with the time and physically limiting disease of cystic fibrosis. He comes across as a great character and his family are so loving and supportive in doing everything they can to help him achieve his dream. You see him moving furniture around their small terrace house to create space to practice during lockdown and how his initial audition videos to Rambert had to be filmed at home. Made me think of other RB Liverpudlians such as Matthew Ball and Kristen McNally, though of course they didn't have Tom's health problems or the problems of trying to audition during a pandemic. if you missed it, well worth seeing it on catch up.

SkyArts are showing a doc. about ENBs first visit to Paris, performing Le Corsaire. Broadcast Mon 16th August at the civilized time of 9-10.15pm (perhaps it's dawning on them that an Arts channel needs to be showing some Arts programmes at a time when people actually want to watch them). Then repeated next day at the more usual 7.45-9am. Pity they're not showing Corsaire itself but perhaps they will eventually.

 

CBeebies are also showing Northern Ballet's Puss-in-Boots Tuesday 17th August 12-12.45pm.

 

SkyArts are also showing an Ashton triple Thursday 19th August 6.55am-9.05am (reverting to type with the timing, alas.)

it includes Midsummer Nights Dream, Marguerite and Armand and an 'Ashton masterpiece', which I'm assuming is Symphonic Variations as it sounds like Zenaida Yanovsky's farewell performance in Marguerite and Armand.

SkyArts keep showing a series called The Agony and the Ecstasy (eg midnight this coming Tuesday). Is this the ENB series showing the problems facing Daria and a very young Vadim, inter alia ? I've never checked as I've got it recorded but others might want to watch it, if it is.

I am assuming this is the same documentary available on ENB On Demand which includes Alina Cojocaru rehearsing Le Corsaire on stage, interviews with Tamara Rojo, etc?  

 

https://ondemand.ballet.org.uk/production/enb-in-paris/

£4.99 for 3 days access

Yes, the actual Corsaire performance starring Alina Cojacaru as Medora and Vadim Muntagirov as Conrad is also available (£7.99)  and their great La Sylphide starring Hernandez (£6.99). I thought from the initial publicity that all were available for a one-off £4.99 but they appear to be priced separately.

Why do Sky Arts assume that everyone who likes ballet is awake and able to spend two hours watching ballet at the crack of dawn?

 

they probably assume nobody watches 'live' TV anymore, and records everything

In my case, they'd be right too!
