Cool!

That last short film reminds me of my brothers, who used to bang out rhythms and make "beat-box" sounds on long car journeys. (back in the stone-age)

Froustey posted this image from Tokyo - getting her panda on - where she is presently subbing with the POB as Kitri in Don Quixote ( I think she is replacing an injured Ciaravola).

(I thought Ciaravola had her "farewell" from POB in February? Or not?)

It looks like Ciaravolo did her official farewell on Feb. 28, 2014, in Onegin, though she is scheduled to dance with POB on tour. Mathilde Froustey is replacing the injured étoile Ludmila Pagliero. Another étoile, Myriam Ould-Braham, is out injured, so the call went out to Froustey, who danced Kitri last season with POB.

Thanks Josette - I couldn't remember where the info was originally posted. But I think you are correct regarding Pagliero.

And Froustey has said that Kitri is one of her 'dream' roles, so off she went.
