Okay, Summer's over. New topic, please

12 posts in this topic

"Swan Lake" has been here long enough, I think. Now that the season has begun, I'd like to begin another one.

The floor is open for nominations. (Remember that we've already done "Giselle" and "Coppelia.")

The Swan Lake posts will be moved into a Swan Lake Archive tomorrow. Last chance to post Thoughts on Swan Lake.

La Fille Mal Gardee, tho it might not be too well known in the States.

Onegin...same thing.

Both such terrific ballets.

Is it too soon for the dreaded Nutcracker? There's already a thread started on it in Aesthetic Issues.

I'll second the nomination for Sleeping Beauty, and put one in for Cinderella and Romeo and Juliet.

I third the vote for Sleeping Beauty/Cinderella and second the vote for R&J.

I'd echo the vote for Sleeping Beauty.

ABT is dancing both La Fille Mal Gardee and Onegin next spring in NY. It would seem to make sense to time discussions of those ballets either during or after those performances, no?

I'd like Sleeping Beauty, too. There's a lot to discuss in it.

Sleeping Beauty is good. After all, it was premiered as a Christmas season ballet, and we can easily find things to talk about in it through New Year's Day! smile.gif

How about Sleeping Beauty now (it seems to have the most votes) and Cinderella whenever we finish Sleeping Beauty?

Scottie, there are a few videos out of Cinderella -- there isn't a standard version (as there is for Giselle or Sleeping Beauty) but there is a recently released version of Ashton's "Cinderella" with Antoinette Sibley and Anthony Dowell that is very good, I think. (I admire the choreography, but the dancing, too, is excellent. A rare chance to see great stars in their prime rather than past-peak.) There are also a few videos of Russian Cinderellas -- do a search on Amazon. You'll find some.
