Is Prince Coqueluche gone for good...?
Posted 23 December 2010 - 08:52 PM
This is one of the things I like from Sir Peter Wright's production, that the Prince Coqueluche is there with the Sugar Plum Fairy-(even wearing a crown, thus showing his royal status)- when Clara and the Nutcracker Prince arrive in Confiturembourg, pretty much as described in the Ballet Alert page of the ballet...
[font="Comic Sans MS"][size="4"]"At the bell-like sound of the celesta, the Sugar Plum Fairy and her cavalier, Prince Coqueluche enter and perform a short bit of double work, supported by a few coryphees, and true to the narrative style of Act I, she begins mimed instructions to her court to prepare for the arrival of the ruling Prince".[/size][/font]

Good question, Cristian. I'm afraid he's joined Loys and, for different reasons, Benno, in the Old Ballet Characters home.
