"Not Strictly Rubens" by the Royal Ballet of Flanders, Belgi
Posted 04 March 2003 - 09:41 AM
I agree it's not with the most attractive works they are touring, or at least not the works that show them from their best angle, but as far as I heard all performances of "Not Strictly Rubens" here were sold out.

Estelle, any production of "Swan Lake" that claims to do better than Petipa and is (as we are reminded in the programme book by artistic director Robert Denvers) "more interesting and logical to read than most 'Swan Lake' productions on offer today", can never get enough attention .
Anyway, for anyone feeling the urge, here's the link to the official RBoF site (in 4 languages): http://www.koninklij...nvlaanderen.be/
Perhaps we could move this to the Other International Ballet Companies section, Alexandra?

Thanks, Beckster, that's about the "Romeo and Juliet" cast we had last December. What did you think of Sunal as Juliet?
Anybody else who saw them?

i'd be inclined to agree with him, re the absence from view of technical development in contemporary dance, since the phase/era/stage of graham & limon. i wish i had seen this method of his, because its underlying principles make sense to me. thanks for confirming that.

Anyway. Juliet. I liked her, but she hasn't stuck in my mind the way the three men have. She was so tiny, and quite convincing in the part. And she danced very well, there was nothing I can put my finger on, but she didn't make me go "wow". I can't actually remember anything about her that stood out for me. I guess I noticed the choreography more than the dancer - is that weird?
I will say that one thing I liked about this version of the ballet was that Juliet wakes up after Romeo takes the poison but before he dies - it makes it more poignant when they realise what's happened.

Jeroen Hofmans and Alain Honorez, both come from the company's school. Hofmans must be known by NYCB-fans, he's been a soloist there for a couple of years.
