  1. I think also in the caucus race one or two if the animals were birds.
  2. Oh wow, even ravens, ah...? Never thought there would be so many birds onstage..! ) Yes, they made various appearances throughout the ballet. Around the 2:40 mark they can be seen in this clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxkmkxE2w7o
  3. What a fun thread! Possokhov's Cinderella for the Bolshoi Ballet featured ravens.
  4. Any reports on the triple debut of Yuriko Kajiya, Jared Matthews, Devon Teuscher this afternoon?!
  5. Next season there will be three live telecasts from the Royal Ballet: Swan Lake -- October 23, 2012 Nutcracker -- December 2012 Alice's Adventures in Wonderland -- March 28, 2012 http://www.roh.org.u...2012%202013.pdf
  6. Pillar of Fire Jewels Flames of Paris Lost Illusions

  10. According to the Mikhailovsky website Marcelo Gomes will dance Swan Lake this April, partnering Natalia Osipova. Wow! Am I correct it will be her debut, as well as the first time she and Gomes will dance together? http://www.mikhailovsky.ru/en/afisha/shows.html?date=2012-04-19&sh=1059
  11. *whispers* For those interested, the entire telecast has made its way onto youtube. Sort of like when the RB released DVDs of Manon, La Bayadere, and Romeo and Juliet all starring Acosta and Rojo a couple years ago.
  12. There is also Peter Wright's second Nutcracker production created in 1990 for the Birmingham Royal Ballet. It was televised with (again!) Yoshia and Irek Mukhamedov. There are a few differences from the Royal Ballet version -- the nutcracker prince partners the Sugar Plum Fairy, the ending is more traditional. There are a few clips on youtube.

  15. Thanks for the heads up, Natalia! I was hoping it would be released on this side of the pond.
  16. A new article on Stiefel and the Royal New Zealand Ballet -- http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/arts/wellington-meets-a-dean-of-dance/story-e6frg8n6-1226159550383.
  17. O/O is short for Odette/Odile.
  18. I thought the "32 Fouettes" program with Samantha Bond, Deborah Bull and Derek Jacobi during the interval of the Swan Lake Prom performance very interesting.
