I'd rather see the Royal Ballet. I'd like to see Het Nationale and Paris Opera as well. Royal Danish and National Ballet of Canada. I'm less interested in the Bolshoi offerings.

 

Many performances of Het Nationale are on the internet, because they are broadcasted on Dutch television

Giselle:

Don Quichot:

Zakharova and Alexandrova have done too many broadcasts. Of course there are brillant ballerinas but there are more amazing ballerinas. Why is Obraztsova never given the opportunity to shine in a live broadcast?

 

Lets hope for Jewels: Obraztsova and Smirnova

An update!  Fathom Events (the company that distributes the Met Opera broadcasts) will be showing three Royal Ballet broadcasts in the United States this autumn.

 

Don Quixote on Oct 16 (the new one, with Nunez and Acosta):

Alice in Wonderland on Nov 19 (presumably the one from last spring, with Sarah Lamb & Federico Bonelli):

The Nutcracker on Dec 17 (not clear whether it will be this year's broadcast, or the one from last year):

http://www.fathomevents.com/#!the-nutcracker/more-info

 

Hopefully they will carry the planned Giselle and SLeeping Beauty broadcasts from the Royal this year as well.  And this is also nice because Fathom generally has many more cinemas available than Ballet in Cinema...

 

Great to see the Royal Ballet fight for the American market, even if this particular avenue is closed to the opera company. But it sure hasn't been easy. This will be their third distributor in the U.S.

 

I'm with you; hopefully these screenings will be a success, and others will follow.

No, not in the theaters near where I live. Last year, they had shown ballets from Bolshoi, Royal, ... This year I have to drive 1+ hours to go to the nearest theater where the Bolshoi ballet is on screen, but no Royal. Next year I will have to drive 200 miles??

If you are interested in Het Nationale Ballet, their Don Quichot is available as a full HD download on iTunes here: https://itunes.apple...hot/id441702875

 

Depending on where you are located, you can also see their new Cinderella (Wheeldon). It's not available in North America (yet) but it is up in the UK, Australia + other countries. https://itunes.apple...lla/id686280143

The Bolshoi October casts reveal that the movie version of Spartacus on October 20, will feature Mikhail Lobukhin as Spartacus  and not Ivan Vasiliev.

What a disappointment. I haven't seen Lobukhin star in a Grigorovich ballet yet, but I was not impressed when I saw him as Albrecht in Giselle. Very different part, I realize, but not a good sign nevertheless. I had been hoping to see Vasiliev in his element.

Lobukhin is an ideal Grigorovich dancer. His Tybalt in the film version of Romeo and Juliet was just about its only redeeming feature. He may be a Vaganova-trained Petersburger, but he is more Old Bolshoi than any male dancer the Moscow Ballet School has produced in several generations. In effect, Yuri Burlaka hired him to dance precisely this repertoire.

Owing to injury, the part of Crassus in the Bolshoi's broadcast of Spartacus will be danced by Vladislav Lantratov rather than Alexander Volchkov.

March is a long way away, but the Royal Ballet has announced that its broadcast of The Sleeping Beauty is to star Sarah Lamb and Steven McRae.

Maybe this has been mentioned before, but I notice the Royal Ballet's cinema offerings are now presented by Fathom Events which does the Met's operas. That must be why they are now at different movie theatres than the Bolshoi's.......
