Someone suggested Musique à Grande Vitesse yesterday when I asked for people’s favourite ballet music. Now I can’t stop listening to it! I definitely need to see Wheeldon’s DGV at some point… This is my favourite “region”, I think.
A lovely clip of Nuñez and Pennefather in Act II of Giselle. The bit at 2:45 where Nuñez cambrés back in developpé devant and then turns to attitude derrière around Pennefather is sublime. And her balances starting at 6:05? So good!
How could I not share this? The perfect balcony scene from Lauren Cuthbertson and Federico Bonelli in the Romeo & Juliet cinema-relay from a couple of weeks ago. I really hope they release this performance on DVD (and soon!) as it was one of the most beautiful and moving things I’ve ever seen. Oh, and even though we were in a cinema 100 miles away from the ROH, this scene got a big round of applause from everyone watching!
