    Igor Markov

    In preparation for the 2010 Olympics, Igor Markov is working with Mariinsky Theater's Ulyana Lopatkina; would any of you have information on this choreographer and his works?

    Would anyone know about the recent premiere of the ballet Fadette/Fadetta in Perm by Boyarchnikov? Is it based on Lavrosky's ballet? Is it using music from Sylvia?
  6. Wished CBC joined the dance... They used to broadcast ballet...

    The Story of Three Loves

    What a nice piece of dance... lovely. The studio reminds me (somehow) of the one used for one of Cyd Charisse's dance, just forgot the name, duet in an absolutely beautiful draped dress with laced top, she enters in a green cape... Forgot the title!

    Nutcracker Grand Pas De Deux

    I recently saw on youtube with Noella Pontois and Denis Ganio and I was wondering which version it was... anyone know?

    Summer 2009 at the Mariinsky Theater

    For those who also saw the video production of 1970 with Terekhova, how does it compare?

    Ballet on film - what do you want to see?

    This does not directly answer the question, but it needs to be said. I think the most frustrating experience of watching and ballet film happens when close-ups are made, it prevents you from seeing the choreography, kind of like if you would be listening to an orchestra playing a symphony, and I cut all the instruments for you to hear the flute... whole bodies interpret dance pieces.

    Ninel Kurgapkina

    I'm shocked and wished it was not true. Her death affects way too many people and puts a stop to her incredible talent for giving and teaching her knowledge, she certainly cannot be replaced. She has to have been the ballerina I enjoyed watching the most. I feel for all the people she left so tragically.

    "Giselle" 1884 Petipa/Minkus Act I PDD

    Mel had an interesting answer to this question, which I asked last year: http://ballettalk.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=27605
  14. I was wondering if in the last act's PDD, she did the "shoulder rolls" that Kitri does in Cuba? For me this is what made me twitch, but I do enjoy the Cuban balance.
