  1. Hopefully, I assumed that it was probably his (Joseph) birthday. There seemed to be quite a noise behind the curtain after the performance. I think Arcadia is a wonderful achievement for Ruth Brill. I miss Carol-Ann Millar as Pineapple Poll. Her first entrance was always quite wonderful but all the dancers I have seen in these performances are exceptionally good. The one real tease for me though is whether I enjoy Laura Day in the role of Blanche, the fiancée or as just one of the girl friends. Leanne Cope comes to mind as I watch Laura in this ballet!
  2. An excellent answer
  3. The dancer was Brooke Ray, relatively new but considered to have much promise
  4. Alison, it was her official farewell. Giselle with Mukhamedov and yes it was that long.
  5. Sunrise, you should have been present at Collier's farewell. Thirty minutes of floral tributes. Not to take away anything away from Zen's magical evening of course
  6. Tonight is, I believe his last performance
  7. About time to pull someone from the corp. why not Anna Rose
  8. And hopefully Giselle
  9. Oh dear, two of today's reviews make the same mistake. Francesca Hayward was not making her debut as Stephanie. The FT critic really ought to know better.
  10. Emma Maguire is dancing Princess Louise in the current run
  11. The whispers have been confirmed. The ROH website has announced that he will join as a Soloist next season.
  12. Casting has now been announced for all venues on the mid-scale tour
  13. So would I. Sadly I don't think it will happen. Emma was under appreciated for a long time and now there are so many good young dancers in the Company. Still, we should enjoy her while we can
  14. Just to prove me wrong tonight is Maguire, Crawford and Hay. Dreamy.
