  1. This article from the Arts Desk provides a lot of background information on the situation: http://www.theartsdesk.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=3298:bolshoi-leader-quits-in-porn-scandal&Itemid=12 Jamila
  2. What a great topic! The first time I went to the ballet I was 6 and it was Swan Lake by the Moscow City Ballet at our local theatre Fairfield Halls. I had just recently began ballet lessons. I remember really enjoying seeing it and being fascinated by it. I was somewhat already familliar with the music having danced around at home to it a lot. I also saw the children's troupe Naional Youth Ballet.
  3. Thanks for your response. That's lovely news to hear she is expecting another baby!
  4. I've been wondering if anyone knows about Zenaida Yanowsky. She hasn't performed with the Royal Ballet for the first part of the season. Is she still with the company? I would be disapointed to hear if she has left.
  5. Just thought people might be interested to know that Alina Cojocaru has a new website it is www.alinacojocaru.com
  6. Thanks for sharing that with us Christian. It is increadibly moving and such a wonderful idea.
  7. I agree with you. I think something needs to be down to encourage young people into the arts in the U.K. It would also help if prices were lowered for the ROH. I am a student so cannot go as often as I would like though the student standby scheme is an excellent step in the right direction. At primary I was introduced to the arts at a young age we used to go once a term to our local theatre to see concerts which were especially for schools. I think this initiative should be used in schools when possible.
  8. In La Fille mal gardee Lise and Colas and up eloping to Vegas where they are married by an Elvis lookalike.
  9. Brilliant news. Thanks for letting us know Christian. Ive seen Viengsay perform and she is wonderful. Her fouettes are out of this world.
  10. Just to let everyone know the U.K release date for Giselle is the 1st of September. Jamila Mendes
  11. There is an interesting article in the June issue of Dancie Europe on Ballet de España.
  12. I agree. It seems to a wonderful part of the Russian tradition that a dancer is able to impart their experience on younger dancers in such a way. A sort of carrying on of thoughts, emotions and experiences in which a dancer can use to put their own signature stamp on the role.
  13. Thank you Popular Library I'm looking forward to seeing other clips. Rehearsal footage is always fascinating to watch.
  14. Charming Lise, we're in the same boat... Out of your seven choices, i'll take D&A, BS, M and DQ. To the list i'll add Tchaikowsky PDD and Flames of Paris PDD (BTW, did you ever get to see Munecos with Cary and Fernandito ( RIP) ? No I haven't seen Muñecos live unfortuantly. I have seen it on You tube with two dancers from English National ballet Venus Villa and Yat-Seng Chang in rehearsal and a performance video with Xiomara Reyes and Yat. Do you know who composed the music for it? It's beautiful.
  15. This is a fun thread! My favourite pas de deux are: Diana and Aceteon Black swan Alaskan Rag from Elite Syncopations Muñecos Don Quioxte act 3 pdd The leaves are fading Prokofiev PDD
  16. Chi Cao of the Birmingham Royal ballet is to star in Mao's Last dancer an autobiographical film of the book with the same name. http://www.brb.org.uk/4433.html
  17. Thank you annetefan. I did not realise she had a website. I have had the plesaure of seeing Annette in Don Quioxte at Sadlers Wells. In which she was wonderful.
  18. I do not like Forsythes Steptext I could never get in to it. I was on edge from the start.
  19. I love the Diana and Aceteon variations and the variations from Don Quioxte. I saw Angel Corella and Paloma do the variations and they were fantastic. Angel's tours were brilliant.
  20. It has been announced by the BBC that a new version of Ballet Shoes is to be filmed based on the book of Noel Streatfield. It is to be transmitted at Christmas. "Ballet Shoes"
  21. Aww Felicitations Estelle et Phillipe. Je veux vous chaque bonheur. I wish you every happiness.
