  1. Première danseuse Muriel Zusperreguy who has a duet with Alessio Carbone in Body and Soul will retire as well on November 23rd.
  2. I had a look at the Gala programme but this is not specified, just that it is orchestrated by Tony Aubin.
  3. Franceso Mura and Pablo Legasa to Premiers Danseurs
  4. From POB official release Hohyun Kang, Célia Drouy and Clémence Gross promoted to Coryphées Letizia Galloni, Caroline Osmont and Naïs Duboscq promoted to Sujets Sylvia Saint-Martin promoted to Première danseuse
  5. tickets go on sale September 10th
  6. yes, from the official brochure, it's December 15, 21 and 22 at 10:30 and 14:30
  7. Same as for Iolanta 😉... There is a Sol Leon-Paul Lightfoot/Hans Van Manen new triple bill at the same time so it's fair enough ...
  8. From a Parisian perspective, the season looks far better than the previous years... Le Parc is a favorite of both dancers and audience. Balanchine Quatre Temperaments and Concerto Barocco haven't been danced for years : 2003 for Concerto Brocco, 2008 for 4 Temperaments, so it's not bad to give them a chance for the new principals and dancers... Mayerling is a dream for male Etoiles, For me the obvious one is Stéphane Bullion who was so great in the last run of La Dame aux camélias last December and in Onegin last year... These story ballets were also given i the past to the dancers who can act, I can see Premier Danseur Audric Bezard in it... Well, we'll see... I think Iolanta/Casse Noisette was the baby of Stéphane Lissner and it was fully booked a few days after the sales this season... It might be the same for Play although it's during the least favorable month of the season But, yes, the dancers have nothing to dance, so it's probably to please the audience.
  9. it was not specified in the official release. it just talked about the values supported by the institution.
  10. Virginia Gris is now chief stage manager at POB but this would be an interesting move...
  11. Only the 3d act was streamed on the 31rd but the whole ballet will be streamed later as well as in the cinemas
  12. He was not slow in his rise regarding the Concours. He was Premier danseur at 25 I think, which is fair enough. So in a way, he had no problem rising through the Concours. But he was only named Etoile at 33. To become Etoile is the sole decision of the Paris Opera Director. So it took more time to rise to Etoile than to rise to Premier Danseur
  13. Yes I think the "director cut" was the main complain about this production as the choreographers had no word to say about the whole scenario. Everything was written by Tcherniakov, (even the costumes were imposed) and the choreographers had just to fill the spaces indicated. Cherkaoui had the easiest part with the pas de deux, I would not blame Lock or Pita. Pita, up to me is the less interesting because Lock at least could impose his movements that I personally like a lot...
  14. Yes, Swan Lake is in Opéra Bastille. it works well there. In Nureyev Swan Lake, Rothbart is a very important character and quite often the most interesting of the evening. In any case, it's important that the 2 male dancers are matching well.... Usually the casting for these 3 main roles are known about at least one month before, albeit injuries among the selected dancers but it will come after the winter break... Considering it starts mid-February, the dancers will start rehearsing in December so perhaps we will know it tentatively earlier or at the last minute 😉
