Permission to perform Pharaoh's Daughter variations

6 posts in this topic

Our dancers have just performed at YAGP and are already planning for next year! One of our dancers would like to perform a variation from Pharaoh's Daughter. However, we are having difficulty finding the information on how to even REQUEST permission. Does anyone have any ideas on how to obtain this? This same dancer wanted to perform it this year but it didn't work out.

Arizona_Youth_Ballet, while there are ballet professionals among our members, Ballet Alert! is a primarily an audience discussion board. You might get a faster answer on our sister board, Ballet Talk for Dancers, which requires separate registration.

Helene is correct -- if you're looking for logistical advice, you'd do better next door. But in general, the person that is teaching you the material should know who controls the rights to the work. If you're learning it from someone who cannot tell you that, they themselves might not have permission to teach...

I would suppose the answer is to find Pierre Lacotte and ask him. But the above advice is right, the teaching shouldn't begin until the permission is obtained.

YAGP posted to their FaceBook page that Seniors can now perform this variation without separate written permission. Thank you Everyone!
