  1. Since there is a topic about ballets that should not be revieved, I thought I should start a topic about ballet's that hasn't been made that you guys think should be done. A full-lenght ballet that should be made; classical, romantic, neo, or modern! I have one that I would like to see. That's Anna Karenina. Imagine dramatic pas de deuxs, beautiful ball scenes, gorgeus costumes, and music by....hhhm...why not Tchaikovsky? Any thoughts!!
  2. I can't choose one specific, but a few ones that allways makes me go..... are the pas de deuxs in John Neumeiers Lady of Camellias, and the ones in Cranko's Onegin. I think both these choreographers have done a lot of beautiful pas de deuxs....., but if have have to pick I would say Kameliendame and Onegin.
  3. And thats when Nureyev's version of the ballet comes i and makes everything logical. Since no normal guy whould fall for a bird (at least I hope not) ..??....He made the story take place in Siegfried's head, as a long day dream. The first act is as usual, but instead of going of hunting, Siegfried takes refuges in his own dreams, you know he's been brought up with to many romantic novels....! Odette and Odile are just "metafors" for his own ideals,....I guess??? and when he betrays the in his mind, he loses his reason...... thats one way to look at the story, Otherwise I guess you'll jus
  4. Hi everyone!no one had posted about this, so thought I should! About 2 months ago, the Royal Swedish Ballet in Stockholm premiered a new full-lenht ballet, created on the company by Paris Opera balletmaster, and choreographer, Patrice Bart. The ballet deals with the life of the swedish King Gustav III, and his personal life..... Gustav III was the founder of the Royal swedish ballet, and the royal swedish ballet school(amongst other things)....he did a lot for swedish cultural life in his lifetime! The ballet is mostly as I said about his personal life. It's nown he had problems in his ma
  5. Manuel Legris has stated that he will not leave at the end of this season; instead he will retire from the Paris Opera Ballet at the end of the 2008/2009 season, when the company performs Cranko's masterpiece Onegin. Legris says he's had to dreams as a dancer. The first one dancing Neumier's Lady of Camelias at the Paris Opera (one wich he already has fulfilled), and the second, dancing Onegin at the Paris Opera (wich he will be able to do next spring). It will be the perfect way of leaving the stage, in Cranko's beautiful full-lenght work, with glorius music by Tchaikovsky. The company
  6. Well I simply have to say Aurelie Dupont!!!!!!!!
  7. Roberto Bolle, and Jose Manuel Carreño, hands down!
  8. I have to say that I disagrea with most of you. I really like what Nureyev did in his later productions for the Paris Opera Ballet, in terms of the male dancing. I really believe that adding more variations for Prince Siegfried and that variations for Rotbart in the Act III pas de deux, which originally was a pas de trois (and still is)!!Remember the pas de deux is not the same in a gala, as in it's full context..!!Rotbart's participating all the time, so it seems fair that he's given a variation. The same thing in Nureyev's Sleeping Beauty!! It's wonderful he made those beautiful variation
