  1. I have had 3-4 of those tiger moths appear in my garden. They are spectacular aren't they!

  3. I know that first soloists, unlike soloists, don't dance any corps roles, so would only be 'four friends' rather than the group of 8 friends, for example, or literally solo roles (or with a partner). Don't know about the chaps, but assume its something similar. Don't think there are any differences between the artist levels, and between artist and soloist, think the soloists just get cast in better roles. Don't think the principals do any group roles at all, unless with other principals if the choreography dictates. Thats my take on it anyway, but if someone has a more definitive answer would love to hear it

  6. those little white packs of 'beads' you get amongst the packaging in most electronics these days, are particularly good for this sort of thing. Always worth putting them aside in a cool, dry spot in an airtight container ready for such emergencies
  7. Sarah Lamb - even in a black wig! :-)
  8. I was waiting at a 'pelican' crossing once, when a car turning left at the immediate next junction, opened a window and dropped out a half eaten bag of monster munch (or some-such ghastly savoury bag of yuck) right at my feet as the lights changed. I gave her my best deadly Paddington-like STARE. Well, the verbal abuse I thus attracted confirmed that most litterers are just unadulterated low life scuzz buckets
  9. I was also at the rehearsal - a joyous piece, effervescently danced! Company dancers © Dave Morgan. Courtesy of DanceTabs / Flickr Oihana Vesga Bujan © Dave Morgan.

  10. as for 'updating' the costumes - as soon as you do, in 5-10 years they'll be out of date again! (and then will either have to be updated once more, or go back to the originals)
  11. Its a joy watching something you can actually see in detail, without having to peer through the gloom
  12. Foteini Christofilopoulou was also at the rehearsal - here are some more photos. Looks fantastic (seeing it tomorrow myself) Scottish Ballet in Emergence © Foteini Christofilopoulou.
