Everybody seems to be excited about Alice's Wonderland. The ads for this production seem to indicate that it is off pointe, and from what I've heard, it seems that there are several dancers performing the role "Alice", they are dressed and coiffured identically so that one leaves the stage on the right side, and the other comes to stage from the left side. This forces the audience to wonder which Alice went where, so that it is confusing and therefore ... I don't know, interesting?
I am very glad, though, that Malakhov decided to stage "Onegin" again. It is a wonderful ballet, and it's a pity that so few companies perform it these days. I wish I could go to Berlin and see it... and I cannot get hold of a DVD, so lousy youtube videos have to do it for me.
I wonder: why doesn't the SB have their own board under "European Ballet Companies"? It's a big company with 90 dancers, they tour to Japan, etc., so they're quite... important.

I invite you as a new poster to introduce yourself on our Welcome Page, Legwarmer. No need to be shy here. You're among friends.

Also, when do they normally announce the casts? If I can see Polina Semionova, I'll probably rearange my travel plans. Any rumors on what/when she will be dancing in the upcoming season?
Thanks a million in advance!

The website is "www.staatsoper-berlin.de" and click on English in the top right hand corner.
We have used it to order tickets for a performance in December, and so far so good.

That's nice of you to say! I already introduced myself, but that's ages ago. I was told to go to "Ballet Talk for Dancers", but I appreciate this board so much more, because you seem so sophisticated and sure of your opinions, so experienced that discussions are much more worthy being read.
No offense to the other board, though!
@ Waelsung: If you see Iana Salenko or Beatrice Knop, you can consider yourself incredibly lucky, also with Nadja Saidakova. I saw all those three dancers, and they are in-cre-dible... honestly.
