The FB page Julio Bocca en Uruguay has provided two online links for viewing Ballet Nacional Sodre's Swan Lake live national television presentation this Friday night (8/16) and repeated on Saturday. Maria Riccetto will dance Odette/Odile and Ciro Tamayo will portray Prince Siegfried. As we know from past experience, sometimes these livestream connections work in the U.S. and sometimes they don't.
For Friday night 8pm Montevideo time (7pm New York):
For Saturday night 9pm Montevideo time (8pm New York):
The FB page is not the official BNS page but is maintained by one of Julio's greatest admirers. It includes up-to-date info, great pictures, and links that document the fantastic job that Julio is doing with the company in Uruguay. BNS recently revived its own FB page, but we're glad that Julio Bocca en Uruguay is still functioning. (Maybe we should say that in our very best Spanish – tap, tap, tap www.translate.goog......)
Hola, Ro! Tu página de FB es fantástico. Sigue así. Por cierto, hay un rumor de que Julio está trayendo Ballet Nacional Sodre al Lincoln Center de Nueva York el próximo año. ¿Sabe algo de eso? Si usted desea viajar con ellos, usted es siempre bienvenido a dormir en mi sofá.
Apparently there were issues with the scrappy musicians' union in Montevideo which caused Julio to make a late decision to proceed without live music. Even after offering refunds to ticketbuyers who might be disappointed, BNS's performances are still sold-out. Uruguay loves Julio. Don't we all.
