About Olivier

  1. I just want to chime in quickly and shortly in defense of Alexei... I am so excited for him. He loves Russia, and he has tremendous respect and affection for classical ballet and dancers. His passion has no limits and I know that he values artistry before tricks. His choreography I believe is fantastic, full of humour and unexpected. He is a wonderful generous human being, and that is what is the most important for a Director I believe ! Good luck Alexei...

    Russian Nights Question

    It is the Petipa choreographed version of the original Perrot from 1844.

    Little Humbacked Horse Question

    FYI, Alla Shcherbinina who plays the Little humpbacked horse on the tape became Alla Savchenko and was Ballet Mistress with the RWB.

    The Royal Winnipeg Ballet just finished filming a Dracula this past month. The choreography is by Mark Godden, and the music is by Mahler... It is a film version, not a live performance of it, and I don't know when it will be aired and where. It is a Canadian production, and it might take another few month of post-production.
