"Eagling's Beauty and the Beast"
 
   I noticed on a site about the composer Vangelis, that he created music for Wayne Eagling's choreography of Beauty and the Beast that was performed in 1986 by the RB. On this site there were two short clips of the ballet. It lists Cope and Dowell as the Beast and Almeida and Collier as Beauty.

Does anyone know if this is available anywhere?

   I'm sure the video isn't, as I have done extensive searches on Cope/Almeida videos and never found this one!

   Well darn. I wonder where the clips came from. I have found very few videos with Cope in them. Do you have a list?

   Vangelis also wrote the music for Eagling's "Frankenstein, The Modern Promethius" with costumes by Emmanuel. I don't think either of them were recorded for public showing.

   Hello,

If i remember correctly, at the opening performance, i was sat front row orchestra stalls in the ROH , dead centre. If my memory further serves me correct , after about ten minutes of the performance one of the leads, ( I think it may have been A Dowell) whilst he was sat on a throne , facing away from the stage , started signalling with his left arm to bring the curtain down .

It was finally announced a few minutes later , that he had been injured , and he was to be replaced.

A buzz of anticiaption went round the auditorium .

The performance continued , twenty minutes or so later.

One thing that sticks out in my mind , was that the music for Beauty and the Beast played at the performance was electronic, on tape , and when the orchestra came out for the next ballet on the triple bill, the applause and bravos were quite loud .It was vey much appreciated by the orchesra , people perferring live music to taped.

No need saying that the last ballet on the triple bill that evening ( La Fin Da Jour , a revival at that time ) finished exceedingly late about 11.00pm , the latest ever i have been in the Royal Opera House for a ballet performance.

I must admit i enjoyed the ballet , but as with the other Eagling ballets , none have been repeated at the ROH.


Regards

David

   I think the title was "Frankenstein a Modern Prometheus".

It was slaughtered by the critics but brought back for one (maybe two revivals) - which we didn't see, coinciding with a RB strike.

   I agree that it is quite scandalous about the lack of Cope videos!

When I find my brain I will write a list of the ones I know.

I looked through some Het Nationale Ballet programmes (Eagling being their AD) for clues but couldn't find anything. (It is amazing what one will do when one is supposed to be revising Higher Maths!)

   You probably know about these already:

1985 Nut: Cope was doing Mouse King and Danse d'arabe

'Still Life' at the Penguin Cafe: Cope doing strange half-naked thing with even more naked woman. V. short. 1988???

1989 Prince of the Pagodas. Excellent dislplay of his partnering skills.

2001 Nut: Cope = Prince.

   I also have a bit of him in 'Birthday Offering'.

I do think it's a shame that there are lots of archive videos that will never be released. For example, I have clips of Fonteyn in the Rose Adagio, Bussell in Manon, but they are not commercially available.

   Oh, I just tape *everything* off all the digital channels. I get up at about six o' clock on Sundays just so I can read the 'Culture' supplement of The Times, in case they sneakily sneak anything on early in the day. A bit sad really...
