If you scroll down to the bottom of this page there is a video with Nacho Duato talking in English about his Sleeping Beauty.

Hi EvilNinjaX and Cliff Posted Image. It seems like this will be the only webcast. Osipova and Vasiliev have been with the Mikhailovsky for almost three weeks since their final Bolshoi performance in "Don Q" November 27 Their first performance at the Mik was in the "Rossini Pas Deux" on December 1, during the Mikhailovsky Theatre Grand Prix. Osipova and Vasiliev will dancing in this new production on December 28, 29 and 30.

You will likely need to install MS Silverlight in your computer, if you don't already have it. My office doesn't allow it, so I'll rely on reports. Posted Image

I didn't have to install anything new and it's coming in fine. (I have Windows 7, so perhaps Silverlight is included). But all the captions at the beginning were in Russian. Do we know who the leads will be?

As of now you can still view the broadcast on the Mikhailovsky website, now as a streamable video. Hopefully they keep it up for awhile so everyone can catch up!

This is good news, ksk04. I hope that it's still there when I get home.

I'm watching it now so I would say signs look good. The link still seems to say it is a live broadcast, which is a bit confusing (or it did when I started it)

I watched it after work up until Carabosse's appearance and then turned it off-(had to go to sleep), but I should say I wasn't impressed at all. I ended up missing Petipa's steps, and then the music was being aggressively butchered off by huge chunks, so I couldn't really cope with that...

I also watched. Total disappointment, especially due to the horrendously jarring music cuts, beginning with the Prologue Fairies grand pas. What on earth was that?

I felt sorry for a star the calibre of Zakharova; she must have been paid well. Sarafanov at least got to dance recognizable steps...but he still comes across as Le Petit Prince, sorry.

Did I blink and miss the solos of the Bluebird pdd? Was there a Mazurka between the Grand pdd and the Apotheosis?

And what was up with that steeply-inclined bed in the great outdoors....kiss her & she slides off?!

Something positive? The designs' colour palette was pretty. I loved the swishing skirts. However, I didn't care for the 'kinky' character to some of the costumes, such as the cats and the wolf. Yuk. Ah....but then I remembered the tastes of 'Young New Russian Biznizmen.' This may also explain the short length of time (big music cuts), to allow them to get into their BMWs and dash off to nab the better VIP rooms at the Golden Dolls Nightclub.

I give this production 1 out of 5 bananas...and I'm in a generous Holiday mood.

You made me laugh! Glad I didn't waste my time watching this after all. Went to yoga instead that evening!
