Anyone planning to see the exhibition on the Ballets Russes in London?

Recommended Posts

I would like to find other Ballet Talk-ers who want to go to this exhibition .The Victoria and Albert Museum, which has (it it said) the largest and best collection of material on Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, will open a major show of its collection. Hereis a link to the V&A page about it.

I am dreaming of (the step before planning) going to London (I'm near New York) to spend several days going to the V&A. I have a place to stay. I would love to connect with anyone else who would like to go and have a companion at the exhibition -- it's always better to have someone along when you see something like this.

Please post or send me a message if you have any such dreams or plans.

There are many sites online about this (MAJOR) exhibition. This is another one. We might also use this topic to share links about it, if that is possible.

Hope to hear from those of you who are interested.

There is now a page of events related to the exhibition. I also received a press release of all the films that will be shown related to the exhibit, in Sept and early October. I don't have a link to it, as it was attached as a document. It is too long to be pasted in here, but if anyone wants it, send me a p.m. with an email address and I will send it on. If that's permitted! Otherwise, what should I do???

Anyway, they've got LOTS coming up!

I've just booked an exhibition ticket for the late morning of Sunday 17th October. I am treating myself to a weekend in London to see Birmingham Royal Ballet's mixed programme comprising Concerto, Slaughter on 10th Avenue and In the Upper Room. They are performing R&J Tuesday-Thursday. It's a great opportunity for anyone travelling to London to combine this exhibition with a BRB performance.

I will have to look them up, thanks for the alert.

I have set my trip dates for Oct 4 - 17th. I wanted to make it til the 19th, so I could go to the open rehearsals of the English National Ballet, but got confused. (Never make reservations at 2 a.m.)

The Royal is also doing a mixed bill the 15th, 16th and 18th.

If you have the time, check out the walking tour that the V&A has developed. They have a great map and wonderful directions. I printed everything out. I'll probably have more paper than clothes when I go!

Enjoy!
