Washington Ballet wraps up its online season.

Quote

Still, the last eighteen months or so have not been without challenges for the world-renowned performing arts organization.

“There’s no sugarcoating the hard impact,” says Kent, bluntly. “We went from an almost 15 million dollar budget to a six million dollar budget. We had to permanently eliminate many positions. There’s been a lot of individual sacrifice from all the remaining members of the Washington Ballet. That’s the sobering part.

An obituary for Lucette Aldous by Jill Sykes in The Sydney Morning Herald.

Quote

Lucette Aldous was a dancer to remember. For many it was her role as Kitri in the Australian Ballet’s Don Quixote, partnered by Rudolf Nureyev in his prime as Basilio. And then there was her performance as the flirtacious Valencienne, a role created for her by Ronald Hynd in his ballet The Merry Widow.

Reviews of the Birmingham Royal Ballet.

The Guardian

Quote

"Could we trade tradition for transformation?” asks poet Casey Bailey in Birmingham Royal Ballet’s latest premiere, City of a Thousand Trades. BRB’s artistic director Carlos Acosta is not about to trash tradition but he definitely has transformation in mind as he presents his first programme of new commissions for the company.

The Times

Quote

Birmingham Royal Ballet’s programming choices during the pandemic’s various stages demonstrated how alert and adaptable the company could be in uncertain times. Now, as restrictions ease, BRB is presenting its first live performances in 2021 at the Birmingham Rep. A revival of erstwhile artistic director David Bintley’s Cinderella opens on June 18 but first comes this triple bill overseen by Bintley’s successor, the dance superstar Carlos Acosta. Featuring two world premieres, the work on offer is variable but grows in strength as it unfolds.
