If, like me, you don't live close to a participating cinema, Medici TV is also planning to stream the performance live. However, if there are any geographical blackouts, the web site isn't listing them yet. To the best of my knowledge, this would be the first dance performance streamed on the site. Finally.

Watching Medici streams requires logging into an account, but these are free and quick to set up.

YES! How exciting. I haven't been able to muster up the energy to drive 40+ miles to see any of the broadcasts.

INCITATUS - Mathias Heymann

Wasn't Incitatus a horse? This sounds interesting. Images of Equus? I hope we'll hear from those who have a chance to see the ballet.

This will be the third version of the ballet created in 2005. The second version presented in 2008 had important changes so we will see next week how much Nicolas Le Riche has worked on the third one (less than from v1 to v2 I heard)
I felt Nicolas Le Riche had a rather more human than political approach of the character and that’s why the moon and the horse are introduced in the narrative as well as Mnester, the pantomime, who’s a very important figure in the ballet. The horse moment was pure poetry!

I'm intrigued to learn this ballet has now undergone revisions. I saw Caligula in Paris shortly after the premiere a few years ago and in that form it certainly was not worth travelling 40+ miles to see.

The horse moment was pure poetry!


It was indeed and that one passage rescued the ballet from being a turkey as far as I'm concerned.

Will I start to bore you (or violate the rules) if every day I say, "Thank you" for yet another great piece of information and new opportunity?

Thanks vh, much better now. This piece has a lot going for it, and I'd rank it as a Gutsy, Noble Failure (for one thing, the subject matter--more like Paris Hilton than Graham's 'ancient famous person', not like Herodias, Phedre, Jocasta and Oedipus, Mary Queen of Scots, but le Riche had a few definitely images to work with, and there's that stark, Gallic elegance). I'll say more tomorrow, as it's late, but the opening in total silence says more about how even better this work could have been; I did finally just quit fighting the seeming dissonance of all that overly pretty, even syrupy Vivaldi, but I never really liked that aspect (some laziness in the concept-conference, maybe? I'm sure there was another way, but it's still got a lot going for it--and the usual POB perfect dancing.)
