  1. It is very appealing to me! I thought the “Rose Adagio balancing” is kept by Ratmansky for audiences’ interests, though, not original. Is the fish diving also the same case. 😊

  6. Did Svetlana Zakharova leave Mariinsky for Bolshoi, when Vaziev was in charge? Andrei Merkuriev left Mariinsky for being invited by Radmansky, but not kicked by Vaziev, according to gramilano’s interview with Merkuriev few yeas ago - Andrey Merkuriev answers the Gramilano Questionnaire.

  8. (A news story on China Daily about an international ballet festival in Beijing, China) The Third China International Ballet Season is now underway in Beijing, the Chinese capital. The opening gala at the Tianqiao Theater involved stars from several world famous ballet companies. (The detailed program info of open-evening gala would be posted in the following reply.) Dance stars from around the world gathered for the grand opening of China's international ballet season. Excerpts from a dozen classic repertoires were brought to the stage, including Swan Lake, Anna Karenina and The Yell
  9. Moreover, I have seen Krysanova dancing live in Swan Lake, Don Quixote, Spartacus, Etudes, The Bright Stream, Carmen Suite, Giselle, Jewels, La Sylphide, The Flames of Paris. But, I have never got the impression that she is "mechanical, dry, lacking nuance, no singing lines, and, like in the broadcast -- not filled with meaning." I think her performances are always with clear musical rhythm, full of inspiration. Her classical ballet technique is super. Although she is not that LADY-type of beauty, her body language can completely express the theatrical idea and sensibility of trad
  10. You can still see this ballet broadcasted live today, on Bolshoi Theater's video channel - http://media.bolshoi.ru/play/#/vod/play/309 , if you have missed watching it in theater. Today's performance of Le Corsaire was absolutely gorgeous! Not only everyone's dancing was well done, flawless, and their dramatic interpretation vivid. BTW, I went to a theater to see it.
  11. Wonderful post! That is very informative and educational. On YouTube I have seen complete Russian Seasons, The Bolt, and other Bolshoi ballets that have been broadcasting live in cinema. Some were deleted, but there are still different editions left.
  12. I saw Krysanova and Stepanova dancing live in Etudes. I thought pretty much the same as you said. Katya is a dancing virtuoso, one of my favorite ballet dancers. On stage she always looked very confident, open and show-off to tell story with her dancing. In Etudes she was as amazing and awesome as usual. Technically she was super and her performance inspirational. Stepanova was hesitant and unsure, made some manifest missteps in fouette turns and the trio with Chino and Tissi. She was excellent as The Queen of the Dryads in D.Q., though. Maybe, she would feel more comfortable to cert
  13. Sorry for confusing you. I didn’t mean that. As discussed in this forum the casting of Medora, the first option is Smirnova, then second Krysanova. And you mentioned Stepanova, so I thought the final choice of Medora(dancer) may get input from the choreographer Ratmansky.
  14. Romeo and Juliet – Ballet Talk with Lindsay Fischer The National Ballet of Canada Very informative and edifying!
  15. Bolshoi needs to listen to Ratmansky's opinion for casting?
  16. The Login of Bolshoi website is different from Login of Bolshoi Booking tickets site, isn't it?

  19. There is a piece of video on YouTube: "Ave Maria" – Ballerina Tatiana Osipova (Bolshoi Ballet Academy / Bolshoi Theater). She is absolutely amazing! https://youtu.be/Kyy4vO14ah4
  20. The second stop in National Ballet of China's touring of Germany is Hamburg.

  21. Last summer the National Ballet of China had a tour in Germany. They performed for audiences of Saar International Music Festival in Saarbrücken and the 43th Ballet Festival of Hamburg. In the evening of July 8 of 2017, the Chinese ballet troupe presented a series of short programs including classical and modern ballet, from western ballet to Chinese ballet, in Saarlandhalle. ‣ Grand Pas de Quatre - Wang Qimin, Cao Shuci, Xu Yan, Fang Mengying ‣ PDD in Don Quixote - Qiu Yunting, Ma Xiaodong ‣ L'Arlésienne - leading dancers Cao Shuci, Zhang Xi ‣ Silk Dance - ‣ Closin
  22. I guess that the text script was written by the Art Director, or maybe, other managers in the theater, because there are only few people in China, besides ballet professionals, really know the history of National Ballet of China. I cannot be sure, since I have never got any response, when I try to contact with the theater. The English translation must be done by an outsider.
  23. I was surprised to find this video on YouTube. The video is edited with old footage recordings to introduce the achievements of The National Ballet of China. It is with English subtitles and narrations. They gave full tribute to the foreign ballet masters who have made tremendous contribution to train the Chinese dancers and develop ballets in China, who are Master Pyotr Gusev, Rudolf Nureyev, Natalia Makarova, Roland Petit, John Neumeier, and Manuel Legris who are the best friends of Chinese dancers. I feel little bit disappointed. They should have included some scenes of their dai
