In fact The Rehearsal is in its own way a historical fantasy as imaginary as Semiramis contemplating the construction of Babylon. The room never existed in the Palais Garnier, but belongs to its predecessor the Opera Choiseul which had burned to the ground some years earlier. Jules Perrot is also unhistorical and misplaced, for the figure is taken from a postcard of him in his younger days when he was working for the imperial ballet in St Petersburg.
The organisers call the picture a manifesto and, looking at it, it becomes easier to see the, at first rather surprising, affinity the curmudgeonly bachelor discovered in this world of girliness and frills.....

A veritable highlight reel of Antonov’s career, the performance includes the company and Antonov dancing George Balanchine’s Who Cares?, along with excerpts from Apollo, Winslett’s Echoing Past, and William Soleau’s Nuevo Tango, plus Malcolm Burn’s Pas Glazunov and the "Black Swan Pas de Deux" from Swan Lake.
"I’ve been a professional dancer for 25 seasons, and I feel like it’s time to move on. As I have grown as a teacher, I’ve discovered that I enjoy teaching just as much as performing, and I am excited to be able to explore that aspect further." To honor the end of a luminous and brilliant stage career, Antonov’s fellow Richmond Ballet company members will surround him on stage in some of his favorite roles and ballets.

In a conversation with Europa Press, the founder of the celebrated company joked about the matter of who’s going to succeed her in that responsibility, because she plans to live 200 years, the Cubadebate Web site reported.
During the presentation of Swan Lake, on stage again starting from Wednesday at Barcelona’s Tivoli Theater, she asserted that she’s pleased with her experiences and family life, and acknowledged the importance of ballet for her existence. With the energy and enthusiasm that characterizes her, she pointed out that she loves life very much and that she will give it all she’s got and pass on her knowledge to other generations of dancers as long as she lives.
