  1. Alexandrova, like Lantrayov, was injured this spring and they were both recently in Germany doing rehab.
  2. Maybe this is a little early as we’re still in the 2018-19 season but four recent grads are set to make their debuts this month Elizaveta Kokoreva, Dmitri Smilevski and Maria Pozdnyakova in Taming of the Shrew https://www.bolshoi.ru/performances/714/roles/#20190705190000 Ivan Poddubniak In Raymonda https://www.bolshoi.ru/performances/63/roles/#20190713190000 his bio is even up already https://www.bolshoi.ru/persons/ballet/65654/
  3. And here it is https://www.bolshoi.ru/about/press/articles/tours/London-tour-2019/ (Sorry on phone so cant do the transliteration)
  4. In the US, he was most known for Romeo and Juliet, but many of his opera productions are classics, real feasts for the eyes.

    Reviews. These are all behind a pay wall (except for the Independent review) but the snippets say enough https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/review-sergei-polunin-at-the-london-palladium-mfhmdtwn3 https://www.telegraph.co.uk/dance/what-to-see/sergei-polunin-reviewlondon-palladiumbanalpeculiar-barely-ballet/ https://www.thestage.co.uk/reviews/2019/sergei-polunin-programme-1-review-at-london-palladium-tedious-and-uncomfortable/ https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/theatre-dance/reviews/sergei-polunin-review-london-palladium-the-royal-ballet-hozier-jennifer-lawrence-a8934461.html
  6. It sounds like it’s a straight drama rather than a musical, a la Carmen Jones or the hip hop version with Beyoncé). https://variety.com/2019/film/news/jamie-dornan-melissa-barrera-carmen-sony-pictures-classics-1203215452/#article-comments Im guessing Jamie Dornan is the Don Jose character.
  7. I didn’t feel like starting a new topic for this year’s gala Jared Leto’s the most interesting to me Oldie but the first thing that came to mind when I saw Roberto Bolle’s gloves is to pray he doesn’t snap his fingers https://www.instagram.com/robertobolle/p/BxI3NsynibX/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=f9tyszy7h9f0
  8. I think the episode about the circumstances surrounding first marriage shows this was a societal problem On another note, Dana Moore talks about working with Michelle Williams https://www.backstage.com/magazine/article/how-michelle-williams-learned-to-dance-on-fosse-verdon-67916/

    She said in one of her Instagram stories that she’ll discuss the details when the announcement is made.

    Really happy and Miami should be a great fit for her.
  11. Managed to catch up on the first episode. It assumes the viewer knows what’s going on and is familiar with the IMDb summary of who Fosse and Verdon are, so knows, for example, why there was some awkwardness when “Shirley” appeared in the Sweet Charity filming scene. That being said, Michelle Williams is doing a great job in the role so far, at least as far as the acting goes. Next week is supposed to flashback to Damn Yankees, so we’ll see if we get Who’s Got The Pain or Whatever Lola Wants.
  12. Here’s dancers from BNE presenting the Oteyza collection from last July. You might want to have a fan with you because... wow.
  13. I agree with Josette. The last time I saw him live, he looked haggard and like he was going through the motions, and the recent vids don’t seem to indicate a reversal. It’d be one thing if Polunin was someone who was a professional who honors his commitments and puts in an effort in his performances, but that hasn’t been the case. Many times, erratic behavior spills into professional life and I think Polunin’s half hearted performances and frequent cancellations reflect his character Anyway, The only place he does classical these days is Munich. He is more focused on his vanity pieces, so any appearance is probably not going to be classical.
  14. Alan Cumming was the highlight for me. While a lot more camp than Joel Grey’s Emcee, there was still something unsettling beneath it all. I kind of saw Grey’s Emcee as the devil while Cumming’s as more of a haunting theatre ghost The look and feel was somewhat more sinister. The ending also was stunning to say the least. When the Emcee opens his coat the theatre went completely silent.
  15. I saw Michelle when she was in Cabaret. She did better with the gloomier songs like “Maybe this time” than she did with the more showy numbers.
