POB performances

4 posts in this topic

Now I'm officially envious. Over the next year six performances by the Paris Opera Ballet will be beamed to more than 100 cinemas in France and Europe.

La Petite Danseuse de Degas (Patrice Bart/Denis Levaillant) - 8 July 2010

La Dame aux camélias (John Neumeier/Frédéric Chopin) - 16 September 2010

Swan Lake (Rudolf Nureyev/P.I. Tchaikovsky) - 2 December 2010

Caligula (Nicolas Le Riche/Antonio Vivaldi) - 8 February 2011

Coppélia (Patrice Bart/Léo Delibes) - 28 March 2011

Les Enfants du Paradis (José Martinez/Marc-Olivier Dupin) - 9 July 2011

Presumably all of them, except Lady of the Camellias, which was performed earlier this seaon, will be beamed live.

I do wish they would take pity on those of us living on the other side of the Atlantic!

Are there plans to release these performances on DVD after the initial broadcasts? "Swan Lake" and "La Dame" are already available with the POB, but the other ballets are not.

La Petite danseuse is being taped this month. The expected cast is Clairemarie Osta, Delphine Moussin, Elisabeth Maurin, Mathieu Ganio, José Martinez and Benjamin Pech.

The others are being recorded next season.

I hope everything is released on DVD. Sometimes things are taped and broadcast (like the Nouvel An a la Bastille in 2008 and the Robbins program) without any apparent intention of releasing a DVD.

As of now, Dorothée Gilbert has replaced Delphine Moussin as the ballerina.
