WEIMAR TOUR // April 13 and 14, 2017

We send you hugs and greetings from the lovely town of Weimar! We arrived here yesterday and our former colleagues (from Hasko Weber’s time as Intendant at the Schauspiel Stuttgart) and familiar faces from our last visit here welcomed us in the afternoon. In the evening we had our first stage call with the Staatskapelle Weimar – you can take a look at the photos below …

And tonight it’s toi toi toi for the first performance of John Cranko’s Romeo and Juliet at the German National Theatre Weimar! We hope the audience here will enjoy it and they will be moved by the tragical story of Romeo and Juliet (tonight with Alicia Amatriain and Jason Reilly, tomorrow with Elisa Badenes and David Moore) … To all of you who stayed at home: We wish you nice Easter Holidays :) See you soon!

Hi Stuttgart!

We’re writing to you from Houston, Texas which is really close to the Gulf of Mexico!

The weather is warmer than in Stuttgart and it is wonderful to enjoy the sun. Yesterday we even had some time to go shopping :)

Today and Friday we will be on stage performing: We’ll be dancing Christian Spuck’s Le Grand Pas de deux at Dance Salad Festival!

See you soon,

Kisses,

Jason and Alicia

Hi everybody!

After our premiere on Friday I flew to London to dance with Polina Semionova at a gala in honor of the great dancer Maya Plisetskaya. The performance was at the London Coliseum and we danced the last pas de deux from John Cranko’s Onegin. Now I am already on my way back to Stuttgart, because on Wednesday night I’ll be performing again in Hans van Manen’s Kammerballett and in Glen Tetley’s Arena in the Play House.

See you there!

Jason

Hello Everybody,

I am in Berlin, having flown here straight from Tokyo. This weekend I am dancing Onegin here with Polina Semionova. This is our first time dancing together, so I am really excited. All told, it will be my fifth Onegin performance with my third partner in just three weeks! In Seoul I danced with Sue Jin Kang, in Tokyo with Anna Osadcenko and now here in Berlin with Polina. So Cranko rocks and so does Onegin!

Looking forward to coming home to Stuttgart!

See you there soon,

Jason

JAPAN // NOVEMBER 2015 (Day 15)

The "snowbound" theatre in Sapporo!

The “snowbound” theatre in Sapporo!

Dear tour diary readers!

Today we send you a snowy “hello” from Sapporo … After our last performance in Toyko (the third Onegin with the dream couple Anna Osadcenko and Jason Reilly in the lead roles!) we traveled to the Island Hokkaido in the north of Japan. The journey took longer than we all thought, as nobody expected it to snow so much! Sapproro is covered in almost 50 centimetres of snow …

We only have a short “stopover” in Sapporo. Tonight is already the performance of Romeo and Juliet – with some exciting debuts: Miriam Kacerova and Constantine Allen will dance the star-crossed lovers Juliet and Romeo for the first time; the other debuts are Robert Robinson as Tybalt and Martí Fernandez Paixa as Paris. So a huge toi toi toi for all of them!

Tomorrow we will travel on to Osaka, our last stop for this tour …
