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

Yes, but these streams are available to You Tube users in Russia only, though on a few occasions the Bolshoi has forgotten to turn on the geo-block.

 

In tomorrow's performance, Evgenia Obraztsova will be replaced by Anastasia Stashkevich in Emeralds.

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.

I'm lucky (for once) in that the Digiplex chain is carrying the Bolshoi Ballet. It's not live but it's there:

At the beginning of the first intermission, Novikova started a short interview with Merrill Ashley, who wasn't particularly articulate, and I really didn't really catch her points apart from the dancers aren't used to working at Balanchine's speed.  I sat around for a few minutes at the beginning of second intermission, and I went to the lobby after there was no interview, and I was disappointed to go back in the theater to see that Novikova had been speaking to Shipulina (Tall Girl in Rubies) and Filin.  The only part I caught was that he was lauding Shipulina on her performance, and I'm not sure if Novikova said it was possible or planned that Shipulina would be dancing in "Lost Illusion," which, sadly, is playing opposite PNB's first weekend Sunday matinee.  As far as I know, there are no encores scheduled for the last two Bolshoi transmissions this season.

I do see PatheLIVE's icon on the screen before and during the intermissions of Bolshoi ballet show. Could Pathe be the only distributor and technically responsible for the transmissions? It may not be bad thing. Some other movie theater-lines could also pick up the program. Oh well, there were only 4 audiences, including me, in the show-room of JEWELS this morning. A local movie theater has done MET Openra LIVE in HD  for years. The manager once said:"The business is really doing good!" Sometimes they even sold out a HD opera show.
