The RDB has launched a new short video before the premiere of Sleeping Beauty starring Alban Lendorf and Gudrun Bojesen. The voice belongs to Nikolaj Hübbe, who tells in a "fairy tale style" about the young man Alban, who has been chosen by the ballet master to dance the prince in Sleeping Beauty toghether with the most beautiful ballerina, Gudrun, and who is therefore very happy.

The costumes look gorgeous!

Thank you for your English summary, Anne. I was WONDERING why almost all the screen time was given to the Prince. :wink:

Thank you for the tips! I visited the Blueballet blog at once, but I couldn't find any pictures from Sleeping Beauty. Maybe they are among the deleted photos - there has apparently been a break down of the platform.

Is this a new production? I saw Christopher WHeeldon's name amidst a lot of Danish...

The RDB's Beauty matters to San Franciscans because it was Helgi Tomasson's production, which is also danced here, that they've been dancing for a while, and it was at the RDB that Yuri Possokhov was the prince and made the connection with TOmasson that brought him here, where he is now resident choreographer.

TOmasson's production has many beauties, but it is really too small for the SF Opera House -- the Garland Dance is really too small, only 18 dancers if I remember right -- though it must have filled the small stage at the old opera house in Copenhagen. Their large new house probably needs a larger.... but I'm just speculating.

Is this a new production for the new house?

Yes, it's a new production, but not for the new house. I got to talk to Wheeldon when I was last in Copenhagen and he told me some of the background - it's written up here if you're interested.

Hi Anne

thanks for the link, jane -- fasscinating article. yes hte Danes DO have a wonderful lightness of style, and it's a fascinating hook to hang a new beauty on.

Much more interesting than the SwanLake premise he used last time.

i'd love to see this production.

Yet one more short video about Alban Lendorf - from the newspaper Politiken this time - but he's no longer dancing the Prince at the Sleeping Beauty premiere. Cast changes this morning 'due to injury' show that the first night will be done by Caroline Cavallo and Ulrik Birkkjaer instead of Gudrun Bojesen and Lendorf. Lendorf does the Bluebird, but let's hope he and Bojesen will get some performances before the end of the run.
