  1. And congratulations to Mikael Melbye from Denmark for his creation of Sets and costumes to the Anna Karenina ballet. I saw the world premiere in Copenhagen 2004 with the Royal Danish Ballet. And then 20 more times.
  2. There is also "The Jockey Dance" with Gustav Uhlendorff and Richard Jensen - at the end of the version with Gudrun Bojesen and Gitte Lindstrom. This was all I have of the Elfeldt films. At least for now. /Jorgen
  3. My congratulations to this family, now even more full of grace!
  4. You can see photos from the gala here: http://divanna.livejournal.com/146749.html
  5. Found the Denmark casting: Giselle: Giselle - Svetlana Lunkina Count Albrecht - Nikolai Tsiskaridze Myrtha - Maria Allash Swan Lake: Odette/Odile - Anna Antonicheva (October 5, 8, 10), Maria Allash (11) Prince Siegfried - Dmitry Gudanov (October 5, 8, 10), Artem Shpilevsky (11, debut) The Evil Genius - Artem Shpilevsky (October 5, 8), Dmitry Rykhlov (10, 11) The Fool - Denis Medvedev (October 5, 10), Yan Godovsky (October 8, 11),
  6. The Bolshoi Ballet is now in Denmark again: 5.10 Swan Lake Randers 6.10 Giselle Holstebro 8.10 Swan Lake Aalborg 9.10 Giselle Vejle 10.10 Swan Lake Aarhus 11.10 Swan Lake Aarhus Anybody going? Or know the casting??
  7. Pamela, they don't bring the Bolshoi orchestra so they are "only" 133 people coming. Which I guess would be about 130 too many for a Swedish theater budget!
  8. Svetlana Zakharova injured a knee injury during yesterday's rehearsal and her performances on the Bolshoi Ballet Copenhagen tour are cancelled. The new Swan Lake cast list is instead: Sep 5: Maria Alexandrova - Sergei Filin Sep 6: Svetlana Lunkina - Vladimir Neporozhny Sep 7: Maria Alexandrova - Sergei Filin Sep 8: Svetlana Lunkina - Vladimir Neporozhny
  9. I think there is enough to make next season's programme positive and exciting. Two important Bournonville ballets, La Sylphide and Napoli, as every season should have. It's good that each of them now are spread out over a 4-5 month period with 2 performances per month, instead of running 10 performances in one month. Good for Bournonville awareness, both for the company and the audience. Flindt's The Lesson is always good to see, specially with our fine acting dancers. Even if the Flindt's choreography of Caroline Mathilde is said to be crap I can't complain since we get to see Jens-Jacob Worsaae's outstanding costume design. Martin's Swan Lake replaces Nutcracker as Christmas box office hit. Good, I think every season should include a Russian classic. I don't know Schumann's 2nd Symphony, but it sounds promising. Our Etudes always gives you a kick and forces the dancers to be on top. About the rest of more modern things I don't know, it isn't really my thing. In any case starting out the season with one week of the Bolshoi Ballet saves any season for me. :blush: Jorgen www.ballerinagallery.com
  10. Yes Rosie, that's really something to look forward to. Ticket sales start on August 14. I guess you know you can see Svetlana Zakharova in Stockholm already on June 2, with the Swedish Royal Ballet in La Bayadere.
  11. The Bolshoi Ballet will come to Copenhagen with six performances on September 5-10 2006. On the programme at the new Opera House are Grigorovich's Swan Lake and Ratmansky's The Bright Stream. There is also a follow-up tour planned on October 5-11 to Jylland cities Randers, Holstebro, Aalborg, Vejle and Aarhus.
  12. Ok :-) Maria Bilova can also be seen as Mekhmene Banu in the Legend of Love video, with Alla Mikhalchenko, Irek Mukhamedov and Gediminas Taranda.
  13. I have to disagree with you Herman. The dark girl in the the pas de trois is Tatiana Bessmertnova, looking very much like her sister Natalia. While the middle blonde girl with the splendid technique is Maria Bilova. In the Spanish dance it is indeed the beautiful Maria Zubkova (who is married to Irek Mukhamedov).
  14. Other good examples of "dancers who sings with the body" I think are Diana Cuni of the Royal Danish and Elizabeth Loscavio of Hamburg Ballet.
  15. There is also a Olga Spezzivtzeva biography by Andre Schaikevitch from 1954. In French and very hard to get.
  16. Atm711, why do you necessarily want that release? Does it differ from the other one in stock from a different studio (Bel Air Classiques)?
  17. Stepanenko / Uvarov came on stage right after the Lacarra / Riggins Lady of the Camelias pdd, which was danced with great passion and fire seldom seen in galas. After that performance Stepanenko / Uvarov on the contrary looked pretty uninspired, leaving me quite disappointed.
  18. It was definitely Galina Stepanenko.
  19. Here is the program for the gala "Tillykke, Bournonville!" on August 21. Program: Ouverture: Yrsa af Hartmann Det Kongelige Kapel Excerpts from the Bournonville schools Det Kongelige Teaters Balletskole Birthday gift from Wiener Staatsoper Ballett Dancers: Franziska Hollinek and Mihail Sosnovschi Balanchine: Duo Consertante Dancers: Silja Schandorff (Den Kongelige Ballet) and Nikolaj Hübbe (New York City Ballet) Petipa & Ivanov: Pas de Deux from Swan Lake Dancers: Bolshoi Ballet: Nadezhda Gracheva and Andrei Ouvarov Balanchine: Diamonds Dancers: Pariser Opera: Marie Agnés Gillot and Jose Martinez Neumeier: Pas de deux from Lady of Camelias Dancers: Hamburg Ballett: Anna Polikarpova and Lloyd Riggins Birthday gift from the Swedish Royal Ballet Dancers: Marie Lindquist, Anders Nordstrøm and Pascal Jansson MacMillan: Pas de deux from Manon Dancers: American Ballet Theatre: Leanne Benjamin and Julio Bocca Ripples Dancers: National Ballet of China: Zhu Yan and Sun Jie Ashton: Voices of Spring Dancers: Royal Ballet: Alina Cojocaro and Johan Kobborg Petipa: Le Cosaire Dancers: American Ballet Theatre: Paloma Herrera and Gennadi Saveliev Bournonville: Napoli, 3rd act Den Kongelige Ballet
  20. According to "Billetnet" it's sold out. You could try calling/faxing the ticket office of the Royal Theatre when they open on August 1st. The gala celebrates Bournonvilles's 200 years birthday, with guests from New York City Ballet, Royal Ballet, Bolshoi Balett, Paris Opera etc. I don't know any program details but Alina Cojocaru is supposed to come. Luckily I have tickets!
  21. You are right Jane. There are three tartans. James clan's blue/green, Effy's red and Gurn's yellow. Effy begins in red, changes uptstairs to blue/green and ends in the yellow.
  22. I haven't heard or seen anything about! Maybe the press people have been informed??? The Volkova book by Meinertz is one of the best ballet books I've read. I hope the English translation will come soon.
  23. I have no idea what message there would be with the green paint. Maybe "Dear old Bournonville be ware, modernize yourself or next time we smear paint all over your face too!".
