Unfortunately not...the airfare from Edinburgh to Copenhagen is a bit much for regular weekend jaunts All the good sale fares are from Manchester or London
I will however be over later this month for the Hal Landers 100th Anniversary Gala, and of course, 'Etudes' will be danced then. The casting for that performance is not up yet, but I'm hoping (but not overly optimistic based on the other February casting already posted) that Mads Blangstrup will be back for that performance.
But, it would be very interesting to see Thibault, though these announcements of these POB guest dancers in 'Etudes' always are slighly depressing for me because it seems to be an indication of the injuries the RDB male dancers are battling.
Hopefully the break - at least from performances, if not rehearsals - in March will allow dancers to recover before the final push towards the remaining Bournonville Ballet repremieres and the Bournonville Festival.
In anycase, I hope Thibault had a chance to experience the Royal Theatre stage before the performance - I believe it's a bit smaller than many dance stages.
Speaking of 'Etudes', I was able to get a copy of the ballet performances at the opening of the new opera house in Copenhagen. Because of time constraints, only parts of 'Etudes' were performed and it was a very odd edit of the ballet, though it probably would have looked less strange to someone who hadn't seen the complete ballet before.
Kenneth Greve was powerful, but it wasn't one of his finest performances as he lacked just a bit in control and precision. I suspect it was in part due to the fact that it was a new, larger stage, so they had to relearn the timings, and also because he danced both the pas de deux and the major male solos.
Tim Matiakis did one solo, and was quite elegant, improving greatly upon his debut in the role a few weeks before. Andrew Bowman was kind of the odd man out, dancing little snippets here and there, as Greve did the pas de deux, which at the RDB, is usually done by a separate dancer (Fernando Mora, Bowman or Blangstrup in other performances).
