  1. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ waiting for you here soon!! Thank you! ๐Ÿ’›
  2. Ohhh I'm happy to know you enjoyed!! But you are right Ballet is lacking there and it is not at all appreciated by the Government neither by the Liceu, this is a great lack in the city as far as culture is concerned. And it is really a pity as the Liceu had a very important ballet company in the past centuries (1847-1988). Now with the new board of Directors and the Ballet de Barcelona in place maybe some things could change, but for sure this would happen slowly.... if it happens.... And with all this COVID-19 situation, who knows what's going to happen? If you come back again,
  3. Thank you Cubanmiamiboy! Our Artistic Director, Chase Johnsey, admires and respects Iliana very much, she was his coach for many ballets at Trocadero. We truly hope this project can be a reality soon for our company and dancers and also for the audience here in Catalonia and all over the world!
  4. Oh, really?! So glad to know!! We were already working on it and Iliana and Franklin were scheduled to come to work with our dancers the week before the premiere but now... who knows what's going to be? It's really a pity as we all were really excited and had many theaters interested in this show. Thank you very much!! Stay safe and healthy!
  5. Please find an update about Ballet de Barcelona The company has performed around Catalonia with great success both from audience and critics. Chase has really succeed in leading a wonderful team that by now counts on 12 company members, 5 aprentices and 12 trainees (with many dancers interested to join for next season). The company has already 3 productions in the repertoire : Mixed Bill, Nutcracker and Peter and the Wolf, being now immersed in preparing Jimmy Gamonet's Carmen together with the second act of Swan Lake. Please find videos of the productions for you to see how it looks
  6. Thank you JMcN, we are really excited in Barcelona!!
  7. Thank you sandik! The premiere went really well. All the crew is very happy and they already have got contracts for other venues in Catalonia and France! For those interested you can read our article here: http://internationalversionballetymas.blogspot.com/2019/06/the-ballet-de-barcelona-is-born.html?m=1 Thank you!!
  8. Amazing news! Today a brand new company Ballet de Barcelona under Artistic Direction of Chase Johnsey will premiere at Teatre Condal in Barcelona. 14 dancers, 7 nationalities (USA, Japan EU countries) and 39 days of life. Program includes some Pdd of classical repertoire with Chase dancing the Dying Swan and a new piece created by Antonio Carmena with the help of Marcus Salazar. Antonio, a former soloist at NYCB, has made a wonderful work in a Balanchine style. If you want to watch a bit of class or rehearsal you can go to Dance Magazine FaceBook page and watch them work in a streaming fr
  9. Yes it is really political, they do not like classical ballet, they only look after contemporary dance, they do not understand art, they have no criteria, neither any sense of opportunity... I'm crossing fingers for you to win the lottery!!! Thank you!!!
  10. Thanks, Katerine and Janet!!! This is not an article in La Vanguardia, but a letter sent by a ballet lover... one of many that are being published these days on the news. You can also see the comments below. In all the letters there are also many comments. We are so many that loved this Company!! It is really incredible that the ones who manage Culture, no matter where but specially at the liceu, do not realize what they are loosing with รngel Corella away, both economically and also artistically... A pity and a shame... What a country!!! :-( I hope I'm allowed to post a link in English for
  11. Thanks!!! Any pic, new, ... about รngel Corella? Did he dance Giselle's second act pdd with Alina Cojocaru? Thank you!
  12. Yes, he truly is... he doesn't deserve to have to fight so hard for his dream... a dream that only would mean benefits for Barcelona under cultural and economical point of view. I can't understand why our authorities are so blind. As for lending the studios, as I reported, during ABT performances in Barcelona Angel was in Rome dancing The Dance of the Hours of La Gioconda with Letizia Giuliani but Carmen attended Saturday night so probably it was she who told ABT dancers to go to take classes at their premises.
  13. I would like to share with you a bit about ABT's DQ and the three performances I had the opportunity to attend at El Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona. First of all I think it's really a pity that the Liceu brings ABT just when Angel Corella is not with the company anymore and now when the economy is so damaged. Ok, of course it has been a gift for us balletomanes to see ABTโ€™s DQ but I hope they will program the Barcelona Ballet next season as this is the company we have been expecting for ages and it should be Liceu's company and even more taking into account that all tickets were sold out
  14. :-((( I'm going tomorrow (and Saturday and Sunday :-) ) and I wanted to see my belowed and much admired Herman... Is he injuried? I hope he is not! Anyway Cory/Xiomara will also be great, I'm sure :-) Many of us are going many days but I have a friend from Valladolid (center of Spain) who is already arriving tomorrow and will attend ALL performances I also noticed that Cory will be replacing Marcelo with Polina on Friday.
