Just a note to say that the program has just been released for Nikolaj Hubbe's group of NYCB stars, which will be performing in Copenhagen next week.

We will be getting two separate programs - the first, all Balanchine, will include Mozartiana, Movements for Piano and Orchestra, an excerpt from Harlequinade, the first two movements of Stravinsky Violin Concerto, and an excerpt from Who Cares.

The second, billed as a Balanchine and Robbins night, will include (the inevitable) Apollo, In the Night, and Interplay.

Scheduled dancers include Wendy Whelan, Tom Gold, Maria Kowroski, Charles Askegard, Miranda Weese, Benjamin Milepied, James Fayette, Jennifer Ringer, Yvonne Borree, Carla Korbes, Faye Arthurs, Dana Hanson, Rachel Rutherford, Mary Helen Bowers, Stephen Hanna, Adam Hendrikson, Stuart Capps (!!) Carrie Lee Riggins, Glenn Keenan, and of course Hubbe himself.

Wait, Miranda Weese is performing?

If this is true, I am so glad she's back!

Wow, that's a great group! I'm jealous!
And Rutherford, Whelan and Weese in Apollo should be interesting.

Hello!

Could you please tell me where the performances will take place as I only live 4 h away from Denmark and would be able to see them dance as well :)

Thanks,

Svenia

The performances take place from Wednesday, September 18 to Sunday, September 22nd at Tivoli Gardens Concert Hall. Tickets at www.billetnet.dk.

If you come a week earlier, you can also see stars from the Paris Opera Ballet performing September 14 and 16.

KayDenmark, just by curiosity, who are those "Stars of the POB"?

Estelle, I'm pretty sure that Isabelle Guerin is one of them. There's been some shifting around because of injuries, and I don't know the final roster, but I think I can get it for you -- both rep and roster and will post it when I have it.

The POB roster I have lists Isabelle Guerin, Laëtitia Pujol, Elenora
Abbagnato and Muriel Maffre (a Copenhagen favorite, she performed in Tivoli last year) on the women's side and Benjamin Pech, Jérémie Belingaard, Alessio Carbone and Pierre-Francois Vilanoba on the men's side.

The program includes Flames de Paris pas de deux, the Dying Swan, Roland Petit's Ma Pavlova pas de deux en Thaïs, Giselle pas de deux, Forsythe's In The Middle Somewhat Elevated, L'Après-midi d'un faune, Nureyev's Roméo et Juliette balcony scene, Petit's L'Arlésienne and Forsythe's Pas/Parts.

Thanks for the information, KayDenmark! It's interesting to see that Pierre-Francois Vilanoba still performs with his former POB fellows from time to time. In fact it should be "stars of the POB and the SFB"... :) The only two works of the program which are not in the POB repertory are Petit's "Ma Pavlova" and "Flames of Paris".
Which "L'Apres-Midi d'un Faune" will it be? (If it Nijinsky's, they'll have to bring quite a lot of sets...)

It is, in fact, the Nijinksy version, and will be danced by Muriel Maffre and Pierre-Francois Vilanoba as well as dancers from "the Pantomime Theater" - perhaps Tivoli's own.

I can't imagine that they'll bring too many sets....Tivoli performances tend to be a bit low-rent. Last year's performances featured recorded music that sounded like it was coming from an 8-track tape player, circa 1973.

Miranda Weese has been replaced in the NYCB program by Jennie Somogyi.

BTW, I will post a review of the Paris Opera Ballet performance September 14 in "Recent Performances".
