  1. We were at the afternoon tech rehearsals for the competition later in the evening, of the English National Ballet's annual 'Emerging Dancer', held at Sadlers Wells, 2017. There was a tie, between Rina Kanehara and Aitor Arrieta for the winner's title. Also announced, were the winners of the Corps de Ballet Award, which went to Sarah Kundi (huzzah!), and the People's Choice Award, voted for by members of the public, which went to Georgia Bould Here are a few photos from the afternoon Esmerelda pdd: Rina Kanehara, Aitor Arrieta © Dave Morgan.

  2. if they are searching the bags on entry, what difference does its size make? Banning larger bags signals to the terrorist numpties that they have scored a victory and disrupted our normal lives
  3. The overhead projection was the swirling red dress - and at one point it looked like an overhead camera view of the male dancers swirling around. The backlighting looked like it shone into the first few rows of the stalls, as I recall, or perhaps that was just cos it was quite bright at that point
  4. think they have rounded it to 40mins now; they seem to play it a little slower (especially the first part) than my copy, which is about 36mins. Plus a few mins for curtain calls, and there you have it...
  5. If anyone tried to follow the link to see the rest of the photos and it failed, I have made a change to fix that (I hope!!) Can someone try and let me know if it works (I could aways see it from my own computer)
  6. I was at the dress rehearsal - here are some photos. Have to say i really enjoyed the new Scarlett, and the Forsythe was sensational!

  8. ticket for the RB Friends rehearsal (Wed 17th, 6.30pm) mix bill (Thrill Exactitude, Strapless, Symphonic Dances) Seat U55 - way back, but lovely view of the stage - only £5 MUST be able to meet me outside 5-5.15pm PM if interested
  9. I agree - Akane Takada was sensational as Mary Vetsera. Just lately, she seems to have the knack of turning everything she dances into a platinum rated performance. And she couldn't have gotten in that much rehearsal time after poor Sarah Lamb damaged her foot so recently.
  10. ....and finally when it gets to your turn, they open a few more tills!
  11. As I can't make it on Thursday, 25th May to the RB mix bill (inc Strapless and Symphonic Dances et al), hoping to pass on the ticket to a good home It is a Stalls Circle standing place, D41 and costs £6. Show starts at 7.30 I'll be at ROH tonight (Sat 13th), or Thurs 18th, or Wednesday 24th for an exchange. I'd rather do it in person, if at all possible. PM me if interested, to set up said exchange
