There's a nicely compact form of the casting on the Ballet Association site: 

 

 

Royal Ballet 2013/14 period 3 casting

(m = matinée) 

The Sleeping Beauty February 22 - April 9
Cuthbertson, Pennefather (Feb 22m, 27; Mar 15m )
Lamb, McRae (Feb 22; Mar 13, 19‡)
Choe*, Hirano* (Feb 26; Mar 13m )
Kobayashi*, Bonelli (Mar 21, 31)
Nuñez, Soares (Mar 22m, 28; Apr 1)
Marquez, Kish (Mar 22; Apr 8)
Takada*, Trzensiemiech* (Mar 25)
Osipova*, Golding* (Mar 27; Apr 5, 9) 

(the rest of period 3 casting to follow)

†Casting is subject to change so please check on the Royal Opera House website 
* first performance in role 
‡ Live cinema relay

 

Particularly pleased at all the debuts - really want to see Takada/Trzensimiech bust such a shame they only get one performance! Perhaps they might also get a schools matinee? And I'm sure many of the BalletCo forum-ers will be as excited as I am to finally see Yuhui Choe's Aurora - I'm sure she'll be a delight!

Is Beauty the only thing in Period 3, ballet-wise, then?

 

 

The Winter's Tale is also in Period 3 but, as it's a completely new ballet, it's unlikely we'll get the casting before the start of rehearsals.  Sometimes, with new works, we don't get the casting till shortly before the première!

Yes we have to wait a while before the cast of Winter's Tale will be confirmed.
I'm really curious!

With three major female roles in The Winter's Tale I will be very surprised if Marianela Nunez is not cast as Hermione.Based on my experience of the play it is a pity that Mara Galeazzi is no longer around to dance Paulina.

Has anyone seen Osipova's Aurora?  I'm having difficulty picturing her in the role.

 

I've just checked and there are some clips of her Aurora on YouTube.  I won't post the links as I have a vague memory that we're not supposed to do so but, if you google Osipova Aurora, you'll find them.

I saw her debut, some part were very good some other less. She was better than many but, IMO, not a memorable one even if of course she wasn't missing her extraordinary ability to connect with the audience. In any case since then she has improved in many aspects connected to the role, so she will probably be an interesting one.

I'm not likely to come to London to see her as Aurora (even if she is dancing with Golding: I've just watched him in DQ ad cannot avoid to laugh to some comments in "his" thread... a dancer of that technical level and elegance is very very rarely seen on ROH stage), but I've tickets for two of her Manon in La Scala next month. :-)

Has Yanowsky ever done Aurora? It's sad that she seems to be being sidelined.

I seem to recall her saying in the interval video for the Alice cinema screening that she had never danced Aurora (hence why she enjoyed the "Tart Adagio").

Zenaida's so tall, Queenly and statuesque that I wonder if people might struggle to envisage her as a flighty and cosseted 16 year-old? Some dancers are physically better suited to playing certain roles than others.

I saw her dance Myrthe, and on the basis of that I was so disappointed I could not get tickets to see her in Swan Lake.  

 

I thought she was wonderful in those pure, classical roles.  I assume the lack of a tall enough partner is the problem.  Even the reliable Mr Cope was deemed to be a little on the short side for her, I believe?
