  1. All the recent ROH ballets televised on the BBC such as Woolf Works, Frankenstein, Carmen and beyond are new productions. Whether this is because it is easier to convince BBC Arts editors that new is more arty or the ROH is keener to show off its newer works I don't know. However Floss is certainly right to raise the factor of live streaming. With The Nutcracker in particular, the annual live screening in cinemas will certainly be a factor in not having a television screening as well to potentially reduce the cinema audience.
  2. Old Money!!

    If you are with a major High Street bank they should still accept the coins if you pay into your account but probably not the note. However the Bank of England has to honour to promise that is printed on all their notes to 'pay the bearer' if you turn up at Threadneedle Street during opening hours.

  11. ROH Proms back?

    In Telegraph report linked below it does mention a mixture of opera & ballet, but we have to wait till 2020. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/09/05/fancy-cheap-night-royal-opera-house-take-seat-floor/
  12. We do have a thread which contains the casting in the third post: http://www.balletcoforum.com/index.php?/topic/15684-press-release-english-national-ballet-announces-principal-casting-for-romeo-juliet-and-welcomes-jurgita-dronina-as-new-lead-principal/ However on the ENB website casting page you need to scroll down within the casting. Scrolling the whole page gets you nowhere as you found.
