RDB Swan Lake insight evening to be streamed - 24 Feb

Recommended Posts

The Royal Danish Ballet is preparing a new version of Swan Lake to replace the one made for them by Peter Martins. First night is March 13th, and they will livestream an insight evening on Tuesday 24th February, 18.50 UK time. Watch it here:

They did this with Manon last year and I thought it worked very well. It may also give some clues about who's going to be dancing - they've published a list of 6 Odette/Odiles and 6 Siegfrieds but only a few of the pairings have so far become evident - e.g. J'aime Crandall and Alban Lendorf will dance together.

The company has also put a mini-site about the preparations on Tumblr:


One interesting thing that's emerging is that although the main production is credited to Nikolaj Hübbe and Silja Schandorff, it looks as if the choreography for the 4 princesses and their attendants in Act 3 is being done by members of the company.

(Apologies if I've already posted this somewhere else on the site - I know I meant to do it but can't find it now...)
