  3. The video Behind the Doodle Celebrating Maria Tallchief is also fabulous, with footage of her and interviews, the creation process with the Native American artists who created this animation.
  4. I have already mentioned on the Boston Ballet thread but Boston Ballet's Nutcracker will be broadcasted on NBC10 and also streamed at the official website. https://www.bostonballet.org/Home/Tickets-Performances/Performances/The-Nutcracker.aspx
  5. Thank you. And it says it is Available only in France.

  8. As Japan is still going on with live performances with audiences, some of the dancers dancing overseas have left their companies and returned to Japan to seek performing opportunities. For instance, Tulsa Ballet’s principal Sena Hidaka and her partner Shuhei Yoshida has left and joined K Ballet Company in Japan.
  9. Here is Denis Matsuev’s Facebook entry about this situation. He says there was an agreement on this tour with the Austria and Japan’s prime ministers. They received COVID-19 test in Vienna and are currently on the chartered flight to Japan. https://www.facebook.com/matsuevd/posts/3375798729203231
  10. In this situation, it is so weird but the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra will come to Japan to tour with more than 100 musicians and Valery Gergiev conducting, Denis Matsuev as the soloist. Apparently this is a very political matter because no other overseas guests have been able to enter without the 14 day quarantine period. The flight will be a special chartered one, and strict protocols would be followed for prevention but no quarantine period. The tour is not only in Tokyo but also in Osaka and Kyushu. https://www.suntory.com/culture-sports/suntoryhall/schedule/detail/20201109_M_3.htm
  11. The great teacher Gennadi Selutsky of Mariinsky Ballet has passed away. He coached Ruzimatov nod other great male teachers as well as the current generation such as Victor Caixeta. A great loss. https://www.instagram.com/p/CG9rRrXDeTJ/?igshid=1tcadm78ad8vk
  12. New National Theatre of Japan is currently streaming Turandot as a part of World Opera Day. https://www.nntt.jac.go.jp/english/productions/opera/project/NNTT-WOD2020-Turandot.html Until 30 October, 17:00 pm JST (UTC +9), with English subtitles. Turandot: Iréne THEORIN Calaf: Teodor ILINCĂI Liù: NAKAMURA Eri Timur: Riccardo ZANELLATO Conductor: ONO Kazushi Production: Àlex OLLÉ
  13. Before Elena Evseeva joined Mariinsky, she was a soloist at Mikhailovsky and danced leading roles there as well, touring Japan very often. Her nickname was actually Sunny because of her character and also her bright hair color, and that nickname was well known to the Japanese audience. She is a natural Kitri and fine Gamzatti, but I was particularly impressed when I saw her in The Bronze Horseman with her dramatic quality.
  14. You can watch the dream scene from act 2 and act 3 of Novosibirsk Don Quixote with Osipova and Vasiliev from the wings of the stage, shot by corps de ballet member Kaito Hosoya. (it will be deleted in a few hours)
  15. Unfortunately due to equipment failure, the streaming of Osipova and Vasiliev Don Quixote in Novosibirsk did not happen.
