Royal Ballet on Tour


Recommended Posts

Is anyone able to post the productions, dates and casts for the Royal Ballet on tour in Monaco and Japan, please?

 

Also, it would be lovely to hear, in due course, how the performances went.

Looks terrific Naomi.  Is the Swan Lake PdQ the one choreographed by Ashton?  (I love that particular one).

 

Hi Janet,

 

Yes I think this is the Ashton one, it says so on the Japanese website. Very much looking forward for this, and this gala is the last stage for Leanne Benjamin so there might be some ceremony for her.  The program looks very good!

Just come back from the Gala and it was fabulous. I don't have the time to report right now but will write later. The best part of the gala was Benjamin and Acosta's Manon (Bedroom scene) Leanne was so amazing, lovely, musical, expressive. Her Qualia with Watson was magnificent too. Can't believe she's retiring...She could dance a few more years. And Maylering final scene, Cojocaru, Kobborg and Cervera was also great, Alina and Johan danced this scene with so much drama and passion, although Johan seemed to have some difficulty with the lifts.

 

Shame there was no ceremony or flowers for the departing artists. 

 

Yesterday, it was announced that Alina and Johan will withdraw from the Swan Lake performance on Friday, (replaced by Marquez and McRae) so today was their last stage as a member of Royal Ballet.

Her Qualia with Watson was magnificent too.

 

It was when they did it at a gala in London earlier this year, too.

 

Thanks for the report, and do write more.

 

Do we have any feedback from the Monaco trip?
