"In Your Dreams,,,,,,,"
 
   This being the silly season, I thought I'd start a silly thread (though I'm sure something like this has been done before).

If you were the new AD of the Royal Ballet, with the power to cast any dancer in any role, what dancer would you choose for what role (including invited foreign guests)?

My choices would be:

NYCB's Peter Boal as Des Grieux in 'Manon'

POB's Elizabeth Platel as Natalia Petrovna in 'A Month in the Country'.

   I like your thinking but I am afraid I would sooner see Asylmuratova in that role

Its alright - I am going back to my cupboard now to endure rerunds of Zoltan Solymosi doing his David Hasselhoff preening and smiling at the end of the RB sleeping ballet video

   I don't know about the silly season Ann, there seem to be a lot of political & intense emails on other threads!!! all very interesting!

Anyway, I would love to see Christina Arestis as the Black queen in checkmate - she is tall and dark and I think has a domineering presence on stage.

Also, Just for laughs, they awful Zoltan as Bottom!

   Not wishing to turn this into a Guillem thread - but howabout her as Black Queen in Checkmate.

Some other thoughts:

Mukhamedov in Pagodas (why did he never do that?)

Anashivili in Scenes de ballet and Birthday Offering

Bolle in Mayerling
