Swan Lake – behind the scene

It has been a week since the tour started. And it has been a great, extremely busy, stressful at times and rewarding week. With each production you tour with, you need to know and do different things. So you are adjusting and getting used to the dancers, technicians, being on the road and working on the go 24/7 during the first week.

Russian State Ballet and Opera Theatre of Komi have proven to the British audience that they can be just as graceful and beautiful on stage as any other top ballet companies. In the past week they have performed Swan Lake Ballet and am sure champagne and flowers will be received. 😉

Images from the rehearsals

Monday is usually a day off for people on tour. Not for people who are left in the office. On days off, the cast enjoy much rewarded sleep in and a walk around the town they are stopping at. Last Monday the dancers enjoyed the wonderful Nottingham city centre. What I personally like about Nottingham is that everything is near by. You can walk to most places. The cast will visit a few big cities like Manchester, Liverpool and of course London. London is always the favourite. Perhaps because its the city that always circulates in Russian text books while learning English.

As this is the first behind the scene post, we would love to know what in particular you are interested to know. Perhaps, the time of rehearing or a few videos taking with soloist dancers?
