I wasn't really sure where to put this topic, because they appear to be a company, and the dancers listed are all UK-based, but it's all done online - so mods, please move this if this isn't the right place for this discussion.
What does everyone else think about Crystal Ballet, as discussed in this article? I think it sounds interesting and will probably download their first piece at least. I've been reading about Muntagirov lately and would really like to see him dance, especially with Klimentová. And I'm seeing Esteban Berlanga in Songs of a Wayfarer later this month, so I'd be curious to see him, too.
As for the idea of "digital ballet," I have mixed feelings about that - most of the time, when I'm watching a filmed ballet, it's to recapture a performance I've been to or to watch something I'm not able to see, and I accept watching it like this for its shortcomings. I don't think it can compare most of the time with actually being there - though, as we've noted in the various threads on audience behavior, a great performance can be ruined if the stars don't align audience-wise (with atmosphere, the way the seats are set up, the way people are sitting, people's behavior &c.). I do definitely feel that there are good and bad ways of filming ballet and am intrigued by their idea of creating and filming something that's never (well, for now, at least) going to be performed live.
Here's their web site, which includes a short trailer.
