Who is the woman in peach in the promo video?  At first I thought she was Marie-Agnes Gillot but that's not right.

 

This is Valentine Colasante in Nicolas Paul's Répliques costume

Merci (which, to my everlasting sorrow, is about the extent of my French!) wink1.gif

 

I see that Millepied has choreographed a pas de deux for Aurelie Dupont and Herve Moreau and added it to the Nicolas Paul/Pierre Rigal/Edouard Lock triple bill.

you may also try the second hand official market called "ticket exchange" on the official POB website. it works quite well.

I also have used this "Bourse" successfully, but you really have to be quick draw McGraw on nabbing a ticket when it comes available.

 

This is so true.... it's frustrating. I've clicked over within 2-3 minutes of getting the email alert, and it's still too late. (I'm trying to get a Swan Lake ticket.) It also looks like the resellers are sold out. Does anyone believe that the hotels may have access to some of the tickets? I'm just trying to figure out out if there is any hope left. It's not a dire emergency (I already have tickets to see the production on two nights), but I was really hoping to get a ticket for one more evening.

Well keep trying the ticket exchange nearer the time, I noticed that when you come closer to shows, tickets become available (changes of plans and also changes of casting)... Also keep checking the opera website as tickets appear... The last solution if you're in Paris is to queue for return tickets the day of the show.

Thank you, silvermash! I was wondering if there was any point in going physically to the box office. I'll keep that in mind as an option.

 

best,

Sasha

Yes, the box office always releases day tickets but for Swan Lake, probably not much so you need to queue early.

We all know that Aurelie Dupont is retiring this Spring.  Are there any other Spring 2015 retirements pending at the premiere and sujet levels?

This is very difficult to know who and when non-étoiles artists are going to retire. Nolwenn Daniel and I think Yann Saïz are born in 1973 so it may be this season or the next...

Thanks, silvermash.

 

I wouldn't have put Yann Saiz in his early 40s as he is still very boyish-looking.  I guess it makes sense, though, as he played a big part in Nicolas Le Riche's farewell performance of BoleroIf Le Riche handpicked a lot of the dancers, then it makes sense he would pick a direct contemporary like Saiz.
