  12. I'm very pleased to see that Rudolf Nureyev is at last to be commemorated in London with a Blue Plaque but rather surprised that it isn't going to be sited on the house he owned at No 6 Fife Road, East Sheen, on the edge of Richmond Park, very close the Royal Ballet School. His occupation of the house is we'll documented in the biographies written about him as well as the many interesting personalities he entertained there.
  13. BBC Four will broadcast Frankenstein, Liam Scarlett’s first full-length ballet for The Royal Ballet, on Sunday 30 October 2016 at 8pm GMT.

    Fonteyn blue plaque

    Darcey was coached by Fonteyn for Swan Lake at the beginning of her career. Monica Mason unveiled the plaque for Ninette de Valois. Perhaps, as in all things (rightly) at RB these days, they wanted to project a new image. Strange that both ceremonies took place on the same day.
  15. My friend and I also thought it was a beautiful service in a suitably dramatic setting. The choir sang a very moving version of John Rutter's 'For the Beauty of the Earth' but perhaps even more poignant were the ballet extracts wonderfully played on the piano by Henry Roach. It was also touching to hear from David's friends and fellow dancers personal reminiscences, not only at the height of his dancing and coaching career but also from the priest who only knew him during the last 9 weeks of his life. His wife, children and grandchildren must have drawn great comfort from not only the service but the huge numbers of fellow dancers, actors and admirers who attended.
