Elisa Badenes and Alexander Jones

Hello everyone!

I am currently in London and preparing for tonight’s performance of Christian Spuck’s Le Grand Pas de Deux in the Royal Opera House – an amazing stage! I am very happy to come back to London, especially as I studied at the Royal Ballet School, and even more because my dancing partner will be Alexander Jones, who was as well a Principal Dancer in Stuttgart.

Hugs from London
Elisa

привет, Stuttgart!

Elisa and I are in St. Petersburg to take part in this year’s Dance Open Festival at the renowned Alexandrinsky Theatre. The 17th edition combines ballet classics from different eras with a special focus on the late 20th century as well as Marius Petipa’s 200. birthday. We brought our own Stuttgart classic: A pas de deux from Cranko’s The Taming of the Shrew.

See you!
Jason and Elisa

Dear everybody,

We have been in London for a week now and are part of a very exciting project: Our friend Sergei Polunin is presenting his Project Polunin’s Satori at London’s Coliseum and invited us to join him along with other great dancers. We are happy to be a part of this!

After we spent many days rehearsing, yesterday the shows started. Along with Sergei, Natalia Osipova and Alexey Lyubimov Jason will dance in Satori, and Elisa will be seen in Scriabiniana, a piece which was staged for its choreographer Kasyan Goleizovsky’s 125. birthday. On Sunday we will dance Christian Spuck’s Le Grand Pas de Deux for the big closing gala. The programme also includes Andrey Kaydanovskiy’s First Solo and Hozier’s Take Me To Church – so it’s a colourful bunch of pieces! Even though the weather is quite British we are looking forward to the next five shows and to dance among so many colleagues from around the world. :-)

Back in Stuttgart Elisa will dance Swan Lake on the 23rd and we will both be rehearsing for our upcoming premiere Encounters in January.

We send lots of festive wishes to Germany. See you next week!
