Is this real life? Paris Opera Ballet is part of World Ballet Day LIVE for the first time since its inception. And here I was thinking ONP would never open their doors for stuff like this. Times really are changing. At 15:30 CEST you can watch Mathieu Ganio, Léonore Baulac and Mathias Heymann in rehearsal (voor mijn Nederlandse volgers: dat is dus gewoon om half 4). Dupont will be leading the rehearsal. They didn’t say what they’ll be rehearsing for but maybe Cinderella??

Leo and Mathieu will be rehearsing Neumeier’s La Dame and Mathias Suite of dances by Jerome Robbins.

I don’t like the entrechats some Albrechts do in act 2 of Giselle.  I think it’s ridiculous and ugly and boring.  

Agree 1000%! 

As much as I love Nureyev, I hate him a bit for starting this virtuoso nonsense. His 32 entrechats six were quite a lot. Leonid’s 39 are INSANE. And they are just that – virtuoso technique, while it’s romantique ballet we are talking about. Albert is exhausted, he is basically dying and for some reason (some) dancers think it would make sense to make the audience applaud their technical abilities. (And I know some of you may say, that in those 25+ entrechats one clearly could see Albert’s exhaustion, but… No. They are simply wrong on so many levels. Gonna repeat myself, but you can’t do virtuoso technique, that makes people applaud, while you as your character are supposed to be dying, for god’s sake!)

I love when dancer combines both entrechats and then the diagonal of brisés/sissones/whatever.

I quite like what Johan did in the RB Peter Wright’s version https://youtu.be/JmNs3wlfe6s?t=2m49s
Even though I’m not sure how I feel about the big jumps (grand jetés and entrelacés) since I prefer petit allegro in this part of the ballet, but the diversity is there. And you can feel Albert is being pushed to yet another extreme, he can’t rest and just has to dance this and then that and then something different.

Or if there are just entrechats, please do them like they actually meant something…

(Right, I know, I’m obssesed with some dancers, but it is not my fault they are stupidly perfect in almost anything!)

And lastly, but above all – ALBERT IS NOT ABOUT THE AMOUNT OF FUCKING ENTRECHATS!
