Opera and ballet streamings

The Royal Opera House have announced the following Royal Ballet and Royal Opera streamings.

Romeo and Juliet, 10 July at 7pm. Choreographed by Kenneth MacMillan. Stars Yasmine Naghdi as Juliet and Matthew Ball as Romeo.

Yasmine Naghdi is British, born London in 1992, joined the Royal Ballet in 2010, made a Principal in 2017. Although I have seen her dance a number of times, it was only early this year that I saw her dance the leading role in a full-length ballet, Tatiana in John Cranko's Onegin. Greatly impressed by her performance and look forward to seeing her as Juliet.

Faust, 17 July at 7pm. An excellent production of Gounod’s most famous opera.

The Sleeping Beauty, 24 July at 7pm. Starring Fumi Kaneko as Aurora and Federico Bonelli as the Prince.

Note that, as usual, the above streamings will remain available to watch for about 13 days following the above dates.

Information from the Opera and Ballet group

The production of Faust is,

The production of Faust is, indeed, quite magnificent. As an opera, it had rather fallen from favour in the latter part of the 20th century and this superb production did much to rehabilitate it. The original cast (Angela Giorgiou, Roberto Alagna, Bryn Terfel and Simon Keenleyside) is available on DVD, if you can track it down. (I have a copy, if you are interested in borrowing it).  There have been many fine productions on YouTube from Glyndebourne which are well worth checking out.

No surprise that Derek shares

No surprise that Derek shares the high opinion I have of the Royal Opera's current production of Faust. Although the LALG Opera and Ballet Group is not meeting at present, information about opera and ballet, as well as interesting articles, are sent out to all on the Group's mailing list. Whether or not you have attended meetings in the past, or even if you do not envisage doing so in the future, should you wish to receive information, along with the articles, just let John, the Group Contact, have your email or postal address. The next mailing will be in the next few days.

Verdi's Falstaff from

Verdi's Falstaff from Glyndebourne is available on YouTube from 17.00 today for seven days. Set in 1950s suburbia, it is very well performed and vey funny.
