Bangkok Tour // October 2017 (Day 9)

We are so happy…we had a fantastic first performance in Bangkok and we celebrated our Soloist Adhonay Soares da Silva’s debut as Petrucchio in The Taming of the Shrew. Instead of trying to put it in a nutshell, we let the photos of our photographer and Principal Dancer Roman Novitzky speak for themselves…

Bangkok Tour // October 2017 (Day 7)

After three very successful performances in Singapore, the company travels on to Bangkok, one of the most exciting cities in the world. At the moment however, the mood is somewhat subdued as the Thai people prepare for the cremation and state burial of their beloved King Bhumibol Adulyadej. The official ceremony will take place on October 26th. Many people are wearing black and all billboards are covered with images of the deceased king with messages of love and respect for this monarch who reigned for an unprecedented 70 years. Nonetheless the company is very happy to be here performing two performances of John Cranko’s The Taming of the Shrew as part of  the 19th International Festival of Dance and Music.

Dear Stuttgart,

Today will be my first performance with the Korean National Ballet in John Cranko’s Taming of the Shrew! The last two weeks have been great fun with lots of hard work. I miss all my friends in Stuttgart but with the help of Sue Jin Kang and Filip Barankiewicz I feel as if I am at home.  I hope to have a lot of fun tonight with my partner Ji Young Kim who has been fantastic to work with! I am excited to return home, enjoy a good Schnitzel and am looking forward to my Stuttgart debut Petrucchio on July 21st! Until then I hope everyone is well and happy!!

With Love,

Constantine
