Bolshoi Live schedule adjustment?

40 posts in this topic

As vocanohunter has listed in another thread, and also according to PathéLive, Bolshoi is supposed to broadcast The Golden Age on March 30. But on the performance schedule of Bolshoi website, on this day the performance is Marco Spada (and Diana Vishneva's On The Edge for the other stage)...Is there any chance...?

I happened to email Cineplex here in Canada with this very question a couple of days ago, and their reply was:

"Hi Katherine,

We are hearing of a program change as well. I’m awaiting news from the Bolshoi on this officially. The date will remain."

As soon as I hear back from them I will post.

Is the Bolshoi Jewels going to be broadcast in New York City this Sunday. It is in England, France and Australia! I hope I hope.

f.y.i. the following information re: TheBolshoi Ballet in JEWELS has come from the NYC publicist as follows:

<<Date, location and time (this is a live broadcast from Moscow): THIS Sunday, January 19th, BIG Cinemas, 239 East 59th Street. Because of time differences in Moscow, this performance is at 10 a.m. NOT 11.

Oh joy. A 10 AM start on a Sunday makes it even less appealing to attend. But thanks for the info.

Yep, Russia does not follow day light savings time! So it's 9 hours ahead in the winter and 8 in the summer. Somehow, this information is not widely disseminated in the US. When I arrived in Moscow last February, I didn't realize that it was 9 hours ahead of EST in the winter and so I almost missed meeting my local contact. I'm glad to know other people and institutions make the same mistake.

Update: Evgenia is injured in last night's performance and likely not able to make it for 19th night....

hmmmm....closest location to me is Bellingham (2+ hour drive each direction) and a 7am start time on Sunday. I'll have to think about this, but Smirnova (even sans Obratsova) is still tempting on the big screen.

There would be an Encore show on Tuesday night:

LIVE Sunday, January 19, 2014 @ 10:00AM ET / 9:00AM CT / 8:00AM MT / 7:00AM PT

Encore Tuesday, January 21, 2014 @ 7:00PM Local Time

Although I saw Bolshoi's Jewels last summer at ROH, I would still like to go to a theater to see them dancing on HD screen. flowers.gif

Not knowing where you are in relation to Bellingham, of course, but just wondering whether British Columbia might be closer.

BC is not closer (but still attractive), thanks for the good thoughts everyone. Still mulling this over. My usual suspects to accompany me are balking at 7am Sunday. And work will not allow me to travel that far north on Tuesday for the 7pm show (though gawd-awful I-5 traffic). I'm still considering....it would be something of an adventure. And back in the day (waaaaaayyy waaaaayyy back) I got up at 4:30am Mon-Sat for rowing practice at 5am. So I know it's possible.

Will Bolshoi broadcast LIVE on YouTube also?

Check, at the end of the following clip, they say:

на канале Большого театра в YouTube

19 января в 19:00

well it would save me 4 hours of drive time and about $40 in gasoline!

A belated thanks to rg and this forum for information about the time correction on broadcast--I would have had no idea the performance was at 10 if I hadn't read about it here! Fortunately our drive time was only about 40 minutes.

Ironically I will likely miss the Lost Illusions broadcast because I plan to be traveling to see some live ballet...

the following was sent by the press rep. for the JEWELS telecast, which one supposes might have necessitated a few changes due to unforeseen snags in getting the ballet on stage, but it's up-to-date enough to have included Stashkevich in place of Obratsova.

by 'corps' for the Diamonds cast, the list apparently indicates what are sometimes called the demi-couples, and not the full corps de ballet.

This correction was still incomplete. Anna Okuneva did not appear in 'Diamonds' and was replaced by Yulia Grebenshchikova.

During the broadcast it was finally confirmed that on March 30 Marco Spada would replace The Golden Age, whose revival has been postponed until next season. This has been obvious for some time, since all mention of The Golden Age was missing from the Bolshoi's season-opening press conference in September, and Marco Spada has been in its place on the performance calendar for several months.

I don't know about the U.S., but in Canada the planned broadcast of the Royal Ballet's The Winter's Tale has been called off. wallbash.gif

Does anyone know the web site for buying tickets to Lost Illusions and Marco Spada? They were both being advertised like crazy before the livestream of Jewels this morning, but although I can get a listing of upcoming performances (either through Ballet in Cinema or Emerging Pictures) I can't find where to purchase the tickets.

there seems to be some transitional period right now for these transmissions.

the press rep. for Emerging Pictures' JEWELS sent word that he'd no longer be handing this 'series' and that, if i understood his message correctly, Pathe was going it alone, or some such.

so while the Bolshoi Ballet is 'on' for the next two transmissions, it seems no one is clearly 'on board' for distributing them, at least locally.

if any new information surfaces on my radar i'll post it.

We haven't seen any Bolshoi transmissions in Seattle for a couple years -- we're getting some of the Royal stuff through an AMC theater, but no one picked up the Bolshoi.

Pathe branding was a lot more prominent at today's Jewels broadcast.

Katerina Novikova, who was going back and forth between French and English, said in her intro to "Emeralds" that it was created for Violette Verdy and would be danced by Anastasia Stashkevich and Vladislav Lantratov. However, in the printed program, which still had Obraztsova dancing, Obraztsova was partnered with Ivan Alexeyev, and Vladislav Lantratov was partnering Anna Tikhomirova.

Edited to add: I just learned from volcanohunter on the "Jewels"-specific thread that it was Lantratov partnering Stashkevich, and that the theater had the wrong (original) casting.
