The Bolshoi's 2013/14 cinema season has been announced. There will be four live cinemacasts instead of five, and the McGregor/Ek bill has not been rescheduled at this point. (This as the Royal Ballet is increasing its live broadcasts from three to five.) With the broadcast of La Bayadère the Bolshoi has run out of its existing 19th-century repertoire, so I suppose the appearance of more Grigorovich ballets was inevitable, though I am disappointed surprised to see two of his ballets in one season. I'm more surprised by the absence of Lacotte's Marco Spada, which the Bolshoi is supposed to acquire next fall, and Cranko's Onegin, premiering this July, but getting any sort of Cranko on video seems to be nearly impossible.

Bolshoi Ballet
October 20 - Spartacus
November 17 - Le Corsaire (repeat)
December 22 - The Sleeping Beauty (repeat)
January 19 - Jewels
February 2 - Lost Illusions
March 30 - The Golden Age

October 16 - Don Quixote
December 12 - The Nutcracker
January 27 - Giselle
March 19 - The Sleeping Beauty
April 28 - The Winter's Tale

I saw the Bolshoi's Spartacus live at the Kennedy Center when Ivan Vasiliev was still with that company. He was thrilling. Second cast w. Pavel D. was adequate but not terribly impressive, IMHO. Unless Vasiliev is planning a return guest stint, who would be dancing the lead in this? (Assuming that Pavel D. is tied up with other matters, like his trial, or fired.)

Since they are doing Jewels, which requires numerous lead dancers, maybe we will get to see some dancers other than Zaharova and Alexandrova, who have dominated these broadcasts. Perhaps some Obratsova or Smirnova?

Mikhail Lobukhin?

These are some of the possible Bolshoi casts, though the lists also include guest artists and dancers who have since retired or left.
Spartacus
Jewels
Lost Illusions
The Golden Age

Does the Mariinsky still do live transmitted performances? I thought it was possibly another company that does them but that they did.

Good lineup. I'll skip some of the "dram-ballet" but Jewels, Don Q, the new Wheeldon...not bad.

I don't think the Mariinsky has ever gone live into movie theaters. Their performances, whether 2D or 3D, tend to be pre-recorded, and they appear very sporadically.

Thanks for posting this -- right now the local theaters aren't showing these programs, but I can perhaps use this information to nudge them in the right direction!

Does anyone know what the Paris Opera Ballet will show in the cinema?

There was a preliminary Facebook posting today indicating that next season the POB would be showing The Sleeping Beauty (December) and the double bill of Balanchine's Le Palais de Cristal (costumes by Christian Lacroix) and Benjamin Millepied's Daphnis and Chloe (May/June).

That's not very much.

I hope Balanchine's Le Palais de Cristal is shown first on the bill ;)

The Cineplex chain has announced dates for Canada. As in the past, Bolshoi and Royal Ballet performances will probably be broadcast same-day rather than live.

 

September 18 - Swan Lake in 3D (Mariinsky Ballet) + September 22

October 16 - Don Quixote (Royal Ballet)
October 20 - Spartacus (Bolshoi Ballet)

November 17 - An Evening with Crystal Pite (Nederlands Dans Theater)
December 12 - The Nutcracker (Royal Ballet) + December 22

January 19 - Jewels (Bolshoi Ballet)
January 27 - Giselle (Royal Ballet)
February 2 - Lost Illusions (Bolshoi Ballet)
February 23 - Moulin Rouge (Royal Winnipeg Ballet) + February 26, March 8

March 19 - Sleeping Beauty (Royal Ballet) + April 13

March 30 - Golden Age (Bolshoi Ballet)

April 28 - Winter's Tale (Royal Ballet)

 

They're finally getting around to the Crystal Pite program. Canadian content and all. Too bad it's the sole offering from NDT.

For some time preliminary casting has told us that the screening of the Royal Ballet's new Don Quixote is to star Marianela Nuñez and Carlos Acosta.

 

The Bolshoi has not yet posted any casting for October, but Svetlana Zakharova's personal site indicates that she will be dancing in Spartacus, presumably as Aegina, on October 20.

La Zakharova seems to have a stranglehold on the Bolshoi broadcasts...
