CHINA // OCTOBER 2016 (Day 8&9)

October 31st was our travel, of which we spent most time in airplanes and buses – our arrival in Bejing was just in time for rush hour …

On the next day our technical staff arrived early at the theatre to unload the boxes and began working on the stage and the costume department set up the dressing rooms in this huge theatre, the National Center for the Performing Arts.

Most of our dancers were able to enjoy a free day yesterday to explore the city – at chilly temperatures, but in bright sunshine!

CHINA // OCTOBER 2016 (Day 6)

Times flies … Today is already our last day in Shanghai – and for the first time it’s also a bit sunny! At the performance last night, the audience was able to enjoy some debuts: David Moore danced Romeo for the first time, Adhonay Soares da Silva had his debut as Benvolio and in the orchestra pit Alina Godunov had her debut as conductor. Here are the new photos … :)

Final applause after our Shanghai premiere

If you have wished us toi toi toi for yesterday’s performance, you did a really great job, because we had a wonderful first show in Shanghai … But enough words – we let the photos tell you more about last night – and give you a little preview for this evening’s performance in which our Principal Dancer David Moore will have his debut as Romeo with Elisa Badenes as Juliet …

CHINA // OCTOBER 2016 (Day 4)

Yesterday we had our first stage rehearsal with the Orchestra – the Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra – in the theatre. Before the rehearsal there was a small press meeting in the theatre’s ballet studio with Reid Anderson and our Principal Dancers Alicia Amatriain and Constantine Allen who will be dancing the title roles in Romeo and Juliet tonight in our first performance in Shanghai. Now keep your fingers crossed and toi toi toi for tonight! You will hear from us soon – until then, take a look at yesterday’s photos …
