Not sure why I'm suddenly spending all this money for ballet tickets, but we shall see...

I'm going on 40 years of spending my money on ballet tickets, and I often ask myself the same question. Posted Image And then buy some more. Posted Image

And that, carbro, sums up BalletAlert.

Indeed it does. Sigh: why is there no emoticon showing a ballet lover bidding a bittersweet farewell to his or her $$$$'s? (Or euros, pounds, rubles, or whatever.)

Hi, I'm new here, thanks in advance for any kind soul able to pour light on the following:

In Brussels 3rd April the following troupe will dance Swan Lake.

 

I know nothing about the subject but wanted to make a gift of a (very expensive!) ticket to my young carer who is eager to see the ballet. I am handicapped and depend on the young woman's fine support so It is a pleasure to be able to please her in this way.

 

First however I was curious to learn more about the production but discovered it was VERY difficult to get clear, precise facts.

 

If anyone has information on the troupe and can anyone advise that would be great?

 

Ballet and orchestra of the Russian national opera

Artistic Direction Tzvety Nechev

Choréography based on Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov

Staging Kalina Bogoeva

Hi, truthyness! Welcome. I'm afraid I don't know much about this company - I'd never heard of it before - but from a little internet searching, I came across perhaps the reason that you've had difficulty finding information about them, which is that their name is the Ruse State Opera, not Russian State Opera, and they are based in Bulgaria. Here's the company website: http://www.ruseopera.com/index.php

 

And I also found a video on youtube of two of the soloists performs Don Quixote - so a different ballet but it might give you some idea of their style. (sorry, I don't know how to embed the video).

 

Good luck with the gift!
