    Audience Behaviour

    ENO bans food and drink in the auditorium (but only for musical theatre) https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/05/05/eno-bans-audience-bringing-food-drink-musical-theatre-shows/
  3. There was an ad for this in the ENB Voices of America programme "Programme includes Rooster Chrisopher Bruce Mermaid Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui Carmen Carlos Acosta" "With Acosta Danza and a Live Orchestra"
  4. Playlist 1,2 would sit very happily in one of Sadler's annual Sampled programmes, where they serve up a mix of excerpts from different companies and genres. The stalls seats are taken out and standing down there is cheap. I can imagine it going down very well with that usually very lively audience.
  5. The new pricing tool seems to be back now. I was just looking to see the Nutcracker prices and they are indeed eye watering.

    Dance on terrestrial TV

    In the links today there is news of more dance programmes on BBC4 in May http://www.atvtoday.co.uk/113915-bbc/
  7. Manon has been very widely staged. It may be one of his most performed works. In Europe it has been performed by Paris Opera Ballet, La Scala, Dresden Semperoper, and Royal Danish Ballet. In the US, it's been performed by Houston Ballet and American Ballet Theatre. It's been performed by The Australian Ballet. It seems to pop up all over the place - It was being staged in Mexico City in the autumn of last year.
  8. Europe and the World - a music festival at the British Museum 16 - 29th April This is a first for the BM "Europe and the world: a symphony of cultures brings together diverse musical traditions in the extraordinary setting of the Museum’s galleries, surrounded by objects in the collection. Experience works by composers that pushed European music in new directions by connecting with other cultures, including Richard Strauss, Berio, Stockhausen, Messiaen, Ligeti and Nono. Enjoy these works alongside performances devoted to historic international traditions such as classical music from India, Spanish flamenco music, Japanese spiritual music from the 7th century and Byzantine choral music." Details here http://www.britishmuseum.org/whats_on/europe_and_the_world.aspx There are a number of associated events, some of which are free. (So if you are curious what Ligeti's piece for 100 metronomes looks and sounds like in practice, this is your chance......)

    The BBC web site is here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00bb3wt This should have links to all the programmes as available on iplayer
  10. Just tried to look to see if the pricing for the Nutcracker is as jaw dropping as it seemed when I took a quick look yesterday, and it seems the dynamic pricing tool has vanished. "We want to ensure that you have the best possible experience so are just making final checks before going live. We apologize for this temporary inconvenience and will ensure that all customers have access to seat price information well in advance of tickets going on sale."

    Royal Ballet 2018/19 Season

    There's a little nugget in the Friends magazine about "Live at Lunch" - pop up performances on Fri, Sun and Mon from 1-2pm, which will feature the Jette Parker Young Artists, the orchestra, the chorus, the RB, and visiting artists (not all at the same time one presumes). These will take place in the Crush Rooom, Paul Hamlyn Hall or Linbury foyer. In the last two the performances will be free. Crush room performances are ticketed, prices to be revealed this summer.
