Bonjour dear readers! Here’s apologizing for the lack of recent posting in lieu of spontaneous travels, rehearsals, pumpkin carving, cupcake baking, apple-cider drinking, etc…Needless to say we at the Royal theater have been busy at work on our newest production, a ‘re-vamp’ of the classic, La Bayadere which premieres November 10th! A clever evolution of Petipa’s classic, this romantic spin takes us to India under British colonization during the late 1800’s…Picture love triangles, Blue (bronze) Idols, Kingdoms of Shades and Saris and you’re well on the right track. Brimming with eloquent, ornamented costumes by the well known designer, Richard Hudson (Ratmansky’s Nutcracker for ABT, Golden Cockerel for RDB, and of course, the Lion King on Broadway) and a plethora of beads & baubles, this colorful rendition of the classic isn’t one to miss!
Last week, a few of the dancers from Royal Danish Ballet performed excerpts at the Guggenheim museum in New York City to stir excitement ~ Click here for a review and the full streaming of their show :)
As for now…a coveted ‘sneak peak’ into the costume room to start off the week!
I will wrap up by mentioning my prayers for the safety of those effected by Hurricane Sandy, my thoughts are with you all!
