  1. Yes, you could. Similar to the auditorium. The site is in a pickle just now. Look at “Two Pigeons” using the What’s On link and It shows the performances with Asphodel Meadows but there is no mention of it being danced with the RBS performance, you have to go to the Winter Season to find it and where is the casting? That’s somewhere else, complete mess. To find casting select winter 2018/19 - then calendar of events and you get both opera and ballet with casting.
  2. You could be right, Alison. Someone out their will know.
  3. I believe they have to keep a percentage available to the general public of every performance to maintain their lottery funding.
  4. For anyone interested in the Insight on "The Unknown Soldier" on the 27th September the web site is strange. It is currently showing 6 tickets available but on clicking "Buy" it shows "Sold Out" however if you click on the "best available" option it will allocate you with tickets. Another oddity.
  5. How long is Mr Campbell in Australia?
  6. Thanks everyone who resolved this. So, two performances of "Two Pigeons" are not shown under "What's On"
  7. I must be going a bit silly, but I am looking at the website and the last performance of Two Pigeons is the 13th February and there is no casting at all. Someone out their put me right please.
  8. Thank you Dave, have followed your example. Hopefully that's the end of those odious opinions.
  9. So he/she signs off with another “opinion” on a dancer that is held in high regard with the description of being “deeply insipid” . This is a troll, no reason to mention Francesca at all, not part of this thread so why mention her unless to provoke. I have seen this style before on this forum, the best thing for everyone to do is to ignore it all, do not respond.
  10. Meaghan Grace Hinkis' instagram account showing her with Leticia Stock and comments sounding like one of them is leaving.
  11. Just read an article in “links” section about Osipova rehearsing with Hallberg in NY. I thought she was injured so couldn’t go to Madrid?
  12. I agree with JohnS, thoroughly enjoyed the choice of ballets. I remember those traditional dances, reels, jigs etc that the lower school used to perform, not for me, I prefer the more contemporary flavour.
  13. It was wonderful, Alison. The program planners managed with there choice of ballets to involve all the pupils in each year group and to be able to see how they grew year by year was just amazing until the dancers who leave this year are truly professional standard dancers. Everyone talks about Harrison Lee and Yu Hang, and rightly so, how the RB only gave them one year deals is astonishing, but there is huge talent all over. The cheers at the end were deafening. If there is a better way to close a performance than the Grand Defile then I have yet to see it, thrilling conclusion. What a brilliant day, thank you RBS.
  14. Just back from dress rehearsal and Aurora Wedding is Thursday’s casting, Harrison and Lu dancing. No spoilers from me but it was very, very hard not applauding, strict instructions not to.
