  1. Maybe this is it: "You know the physical pain is normal. You know you have to work, you have to suffer. But the mental pain when you are little is hard to take, to cope with." "What is the mental pain?" "Mental pain is the remarks...the little comments that demoralize you and make you think: I don't think I'm cut out for this. It's brutal when you're a kid of 12 and you think, She's right, maybe I'm not good enough. Maybe I'm never made to be an étoile. So you are young and you hear this kind of remark." - Étoiles: the Dancers of Paris Opera Ballet (2001) http://www.trilulilu.ro/video-cultura/etoiles-dancers-of-the-paris-opera-ballet-class-re (starting from 25:45 or so). Also she was mentioned in an article of Bessy Claude's ruling method of the school: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2002/dec/08/france.arts
  2. Thank you volcanohunter. I've been looking for their announcement on Cinema season all around. Few is better than none.
  3. Update: Evgenia is injured in last night's performance and likely not able to make it for 19th night....
  4. As vocanohunter has listed in another thread, and also according to PathéLive, Bolshoi is supposed to broadcast The Golden Age on March 30. But on the performance schedule of Bolshoi website, on this day the performance is Marco Spada (and Diana Vishneva's On The Edge for the other stage)...Is there any chance...? http://bolshoi.ru/en...etable/#2014-03
  5. As vocanohunter has listed, and also according to PathéLive, Bolshoi is going to live broadcast The Golden Age on March 30, but now the performance schedule of Bolshoi on this day shows Marco Spada...Is there any chance...? http://bolshoi.ru/en/timetable/#2014-03
  6. Here's a long dance clip of Genia, David, Olga and Semyon. Genia is ADORABLE.
  7. Too bad...since POB already has a pathetic number of broadcasts in the first place. I don't mind watching Aurelie and Mathieu for another million times (and hopefully in HD this time), but why must they do this when they could show another cast?
  8. I was wondering about the cast when I found out there is performance listed on POB website on that date. Any idea?
  9. Ferri is coming back to her dancing career. Report: http://www.gramilano.com/2013/06/alessandra-ferri-returns-to-dance-the-end-of-her-marriage/
  10. Episode 4 is up but it includes 3 pieces of copyrighted music, so it is banned in US.. including Olga Smirnova and Anna Tikhomirova's dancing. I don't know why that is a big deal, so soon ballet would be illegal because of Tchaikovsky and Minkus? Ridiculous. I don't know if I should take out those three pieces and upload a "condensed" version...
  11. She is still leading. Here is the link to the stats count on the official website: http://tvkultura.ru/vote/answer/vote_id/1/brand_id/22545 More is coming on youtube. I wish people could tell me what the judges are saying...
  12. More: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xP70lhbSRw&feature=g-u-u http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6uYc5OMitk&feature=g-u-u http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1bZs57f04w&feature=g-u-u
  13. I found fiordililia has posted excerpts of October 6 performance on youtube, with Seymon Chudin, Olga Smirnova, Anna Tikhomirova, and Anna Nikulina. Here are the links: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_u2hTXY0QA&feature=g-u-u http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTIneYdk_QE&feature=g-u-u
  14. Greetings, balletomanes! I discovered a video clip of La Sylphide pas de deux (Bournonville). The dancers are so wonderful that I would like to track their names. Could anyone here recognize them? here is the link (don't know how to include a real video in a post yet.) Above all I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
  15. Hi all, I have registered quite a while ago but never posted. I am not a dancer but I enjoy watching dance more than anything else.
