Romeo and Juliet/ Roland Petit program

2 posts in this topic

The POB season will end with two programs: Nureyev's production of "Romeo and Juliet" (with the farewell performances of Elisabeth Maurin and Karin Averty, both 42) and a Roland Petit triple bill ("L'Arlésienne", "Le jeune homme et la mort" and "Carmen").

Here are the casts:

Unfortunately, several dancers were removed from the casts because of injuries (including Manuel Legris, as sophia announced in another thread).

The couples in the main roles will be: Dupont and Moreau, Maurin and Pech, Pujol and Pech, Letestu and Paquette, Pujol and Duquenne, Averty and Duquenne.

I find it a bit striking that none of the 7 present male étoiles is cast as Romeo. The only male étoiles in that program are Wilfried Romoli and Laurent Hilaire, who will dance Tybalt (alternating with the sujets Stéphane Phavorin and Stéphane Bullion).

-for l'Arlésienne:

Lucia Lacarra will dance Carmen as a guest artist (she used to dance with Roland Petit's company at the beginning of her career, and he still seems to appreciate her very much), partnered with Manuel Legris as Don José.

The other Carmens will be Clairemarie Osta (with Nicolas Le Riche), Aurélie Dupont (with Manuel Legris) and Marie-Agnès Gillot (with José Martinez).

Some casts for the Roland Petit program have been changed on the POB web site: Eleonora Abbagnato will dance the first performances of Carmen with Nicolas Le Riche (instead of Clairemarie Osta- who is still listed for some further performances) and Aurélie Dupont and Manuel Legris aren't listed any longer. for "Carmen". Lucia Lacarra will be partnered by José Martinez.
