    2018 Met Season

    Footnote to the AfteRite discussion above: the Royal Danish Ballet has just announced next season's programme, which includes AfteRite and lists it as a co-production with ABT. (And they're doing it on a double bill with Etudes!)
  3. Chase Johnsey is joining English National Ballet and will appear with them in Sleeping Beauty this summer.

    Liam Scarlett's Queen of Spades for the RDB

    No, I haven't seen anything in Copenhagen this season (yet ). The Danish reviews have been very good, I believe.

    "Manon" Osipova-Shklyarov "Friday the 13th" April

    For those who don't know her and may be a little confused by this, Naghdi has a Belgian mother and an Iranian father. She was born and brought up in London, where her outstanding talent has been recognised for quite some time.
  6. You are right, it was Brenda Last. And David Blair.
  7. Scarlett's latest ballet opens in Copenhagen tomorrow - while we wait, the Danish paper Politiken has published an interview with Kizzy Matiakis, who dances the Countess - the photographs are wonderful! Google translate works quite well on the words.

    Francesca Hayward

    I saw her Giselle in February and and watching her in Act 2 there came a moment when I suddenly felt that little, and so rare, shiver of recognition; she's The Real Thing. Impossible to describe, unmistakeable when you see it.
