And looking at the programming for June, I'm hoping it will be up online for a while after the live event -- I'll be away from my screen on the day.  And I'm always interested in seeing Biches!

Unfortunately Bavarian State Opera streams are not available for viewing after the fact. It's live or never.

 

The company has posted more detailed casting for La Bayadère, which will also feature Ivy Amista as Gamzatti and Tigran Mikayelyan as the Golden Idol. The site notes that Patrice Bart's production includes the final, post-Shades act.

not so long ago we would have been amazed and thrilled at just being able to see a ballet all the way from Munich without it costing us a cent and without budging from our computer, without lamenting that it was only available live and not viewable after the fact!

Yes! Too true! 

I was so, so happy to have been able to buy a video of a ballet, many years ago, after I stopped dancing and had a video-player. 

Now..... Geez! 

Are we spoiled, or what!? tongue.png

 

I am not complaining too loudly - I will be seeing another ballet, live, on the night of the 15th. wink1.gif

Very true -- I remember how difficult it was to see some of the early Dance in America programs when they were broadcast.  I was in college, and very few people I knew had a television.  I had to make a case to everyone in the media lounge at the student union that they really did want to watch dance rather than serial television...

I'm curious if anyone else watched this streaming video. Most importantly, I'm so impressed at the frequent live-streamed performances we are able to access in the US from European and Russian companies. Other than the Guggenheim Works & Process stream, I can't think of anything comparable from US or Canadian companies.

 

I didn't recognize a single name on the cast list, but thought the performances (especially Nikyia and Gamzatti) very impressive. Solor was acceptable. The corps had a few rough edges (mainly lines and positions that did not perfectly align in the Kingdom of the Shades), but otherwise was just fine. Nikyia slipped and fell at one point in the first act, but we see that at NYCB and ABT as well.

 

The production seemed lavish and the interior of the Opera House just gorgeous. A man in a business suit came out after the intermission to (apparently) announce some kind of delay, but it was in German without captioning, so I don't know what the explanation was.

 

The camera work was mostly okay, but had some odd moments. In a couple of places, it looked like several camera angles were being superimposed to create a blurry ethereal/other-worldly sense. As the theater audience didn't see it that way, I wish they would skip these "special effects." I was annoyed in several places where I was only seeing principals from the waist up, when I knew interesting things would be happening in the footwork. But for the most part, I was shown what I wanted to see.

 

One interesting touch in the transmission: they had a live camera on backstage at the intermission for a time and we could see dancers warming up and speaking  -- often in English, which seems to be the current lingua franca of the EU.  We also got a good look at the steep stairs the corps climbs up to the ramps for the Kingdom of the Shades.
