Fathom Events, the American distributor, had already scheduled a repeat of the Met's Werther on March 19, which is why Sleeping Beauty is being shown a day later in the U.S.

Oh, that makes sense.  Thanks!

Extra thanks to volcanohunter as I won a set of tickets. I recommend entering! I can't imagine there is a huge pool to draw from daily.

 

 

 

They did an encore of Swan Lake that wasn't announced in advance of the screening, so they might decide to do encores in the summer; they did last year or the year before, right?

Yay for ksk04! clapping.gif

 

In case someone has not seen them, there are photos from the production in the "downloads" section. The first, for whatever reason, is of Marianela Nuñez, but the remainder feature Sarah Lamb and Steven McRae.

The Royal Ballet has made a trailer using footage from its last broadcast of The Sleeping Beauty with Lauren Cuthbertson and Sergei Polunin. This next version is to star Sarah Lamb and Steven McRae. The page linked below also includes a search box for finding nearby screenings.

 
It seems to be pretty common for ballet theaters to have different casting in advertisement trailers from the real dancers in broadcasting, e.g., Mariinsky's Swan Lake, Bolshoi's Lost Illusion, and again Royal's Sleeping Beauty.
 
I did feel excited, when I saw Polunin in Royal's ads of Sleeping Beauty during the Royal's Swan Lake show. I am wondering whether or not there is the rule in ballet world, that is, if the dancer(s) left a theater, the official publishing of their performances with the theater would be shut down?
 
The reason why I am asking this question is that I am still waiting for the DVD of D.Q. from Bolshoi's HD broadcasting, in which N. Osipova & I. Vasiliev danced. If that is the reason for Bolshoi to stop publishing the DVD, I would be very disappointed. I believe that it could be one of the best D.Q.s in history. Three years ago, they both were very young & energetic, unsophisticated, and in love; they matched the roles in D.Q. naturally; although they are more experienced dancers now.

I shouldn't have made a big deal about the difference in cast. Obviously, a company can't make a trailer using footage from a performance that has not yet taken place.

 

Polunin did return to the Royal Ballet as a guest to dance in Marguerite and Armand, and it was released on DVD. I think the Cuthbertson/Polunin Sleeping Beauty is unlikely to be released because it had a "not ready for prime time" feel to it. Neither of them looked particularly confident, and both struggled technically. These shortcomings are fairly easy to hide in the quick edits of a trailer.

 

But I agree with you about the Bolshoi broadcasts. Most of my favorites are sitting in the vault, and I do wonder whether the participation of "ex-"dancers like Tsiskaridze, Osipova, Lunkina and Dmitrichenko has something to do with it.

Thank you for the info! I found the DVD Ashton Celebration (2013) on AMAZON. I guess this is the right one and have ordered it. I would keep on hoping that the DVD of Osipovs & Vasiliev's D.Q. could soon be released by Bolshoi. Even if I were thinking with my bottom, I could see that publishing this DVD must be a huge commercial success. What is the Bolshoi theater calculating?
