‘The Dream’ rehearsal footage from Birmingham Royal Ballet
Yet more stuff from Birmingham Royal Ballet - I guess they must be busy at the moment. Still, it's hard not to post it here when it's this good. The following video features:
Dame Antoinette Sibley and Sir Anthony Dowell who came to Birmingham Royal Ballet's studios. They were there to coach dancers who would this season be performing the roles of Titania and Oberon in Sir Frederick Ashton's The Dream - roles which Dame Antoinette and Sir Anthony originally created.Enjoy the video, although I should mention a couple of things to watch out for - one is copious footage of a dancer rehearsing in his pants - so much for the glamour of the job! (Don't worry, it's safe for work). The other is Natasha's little shoulder shake at 2mins 30s!
