    Millepied, Robbins, Balanchine

    I have seen the broadcast yesterday. Unfortunatelly, the new work of Millepied was a disappointment. Only the pas de deux with Baulac and Marchard was interesting in my opinoin. The stage set was amazing with lamps moving. Opus 19/ The dreamer was lovely with Heymann and Albisson. I always liked Albisson, but she shines in this ballet! Theme and variations was nice aswell. I'm not the biggest fan of Hecquet, so i did not like it as much the dreamer.

    Bolshoi 2015 Promotion

    I love that Anna Nikulina, Igor Tsvirko are promoted! Just like AlexL, I hope he now gets better roles to dance than just the jester. He could be a great basillo, but also swan lake will work great for him! https://theballetblogger.wordpress.com/

    Sergei Filin's contract will not be renewed

    Filin did a lot of good things for the bolshoi, like bringing new work as onegin and la dame aux camelias. but i still think bringing Hallberg to the bolshoi was one of his mistakes. Hallberg is ofcourse a good dancer, but in my opinion not the dancer better than other bolshoi dancers in the leading solist rank. It is sad for Filin, because of his sightproblems he will have a hard time finding a new job in ballet. I am curious who will be his successor... Anyone any suggestions?

    2015-16 season

    I love the triple bill of Frank bridge variations, Short time together and Symphony of palms. I have seen two of the three pieces, Short time together and van Manen, and i think this is an amazing combination. Very new modern for the bolshoi!
