    Debuts

    I noticed there are some interesting debuts this week for La Ventana/Kermesse. Have any our Danish posters seen any of their performances?
  2. I'm so enjoying your reports Natalia, thank you so much! Luxie
  3. Thanks for the information Mary, much appreciated. Luxie
  4. Thanks Alexandra Yes, maybe someone local to Denmark can confirm??
  5. Can anyone tell me when the summer break is "officially" over for the ballet and when they will begin training again? thanks!
  6. When will rehearsals begin for some of the new performances that are listed for the new season? (Sorry if its a really stupid question but I've only been watching ballet for about 12 months and I still have to learn a lot of obvious things..) Luxie.
  7. Thanks a lot for replying.
  8. Was just wondering if anyone local to Denmark could tell me how Ellen Green is getting on in the RDB? She kindly assisted me (by answering some questions I put to the press office) with a project I was doing last year about Life as a Dancer in the Corps and I just wondered how she is doing? Has anyone seen her dance? thanks Luxie.
  9. Can anyone tell me how Josee Howard performed, if anyone has seen her?
  10. For anyone who might be interested I recently saw the Nutcracker performed by the Moscow Ballet – La Classique. Honestly I’d never heard of this ballet company until recently (is it just me who gets confused by the many Moscow/Russian ballet companies that seem to be touring?) Anyway, I’m happy to report that it was a really great evening. Unfortunately I don’t often get to see ballet because of where I live, and I'm not a dancer myself, and so for this reason I’m not the best judge of how technically correct all the movements were but I can say how enjoyable the whole evening was. The venue was only local with makeshift wings etc and its hard when on tour to have proper scenery etc but nevertheless the music was good (even though it was taped and I do so love a proper orchestra) and for two hours I was swept into a magical land of childhood dreams amid grace and beauty. The costumes were gorgeous and I especially loved the waltz of the snowflakes, the stage full of swirling white tutus all in exact time. The principal dancers were all excellent and (it seemed to me) that precision and accuracy were present at all times. I’m sorry I can’t review in greater detail but I thought that I would post something just to reassure anyone who might get a chance to see them that in my opinion its worth it. Luxie.
  11. Of course I shall be pleased to report back after the event Luxie
  12. I'm in the Netherlands on 24/25 of this month..this performance is sold out sadly according to the website but does anyone know if its possible to get tickets at the box office last minute..because of cancellations or something maybe?? thanks, Luxie
  13. They are touring in my local area of the UK later this month so I'm taking a chance and getting tickets..*hopefully* they will be good. Luxie.
