  1. Here is the post. candacekuss Congratulations @frankiegoestohayward 👏 Please let us know — are you back for Romeo & Juliet?? frankiegoestohayward @candacekussyes! 🙋🏽‍♀️
  2. She does confirm in an answer to a question on Instagram that she is back for R&J.
  3. Good luck to Frankie. Hope she is back for R&J.
  4. My question was why the ROH want me to cut back on the number of times I attend in favour of all these young people who cannot get a ticket. The fact that the answer addressed a different question was not a surprise. Like politicians they answer the question they want to be asked not the question asked.
  5. Here is one, Bruce. " Thank you for your email. I have advised Lucy of your comments and she has asked me to respond on her behalf. Please be assured that we have no intention of deliberately reducing the number of Friends attending performances at the Royal Opera House and did not mean that. The piece written by Arts Professional intended to describe more generally the Royal Opera House's intention to broaden its audience in the long-term, and we deeply apologise if the wrong impression was given in the article to Friends about our pricing policy. Best regards, Graham Boland Visitor Experience"
  6. Goat is also used as an acronym for Greatest Of All Time. Not sure about the No though, maybe he/she can enlighten us?
  7. More tomorrow but you are right Mary, Corrales looked the real deal.
  8. Having just renewed my Friends+ membership and then reading this decision I have contacted the friends office and offered to help them out by requesting a refund and freeing up my blockage for all these new people. I hope Ms Roco and the ENB will take pity on a couple who want to give a little support to an art form they love.
  9. The service returns for a few hours on the Friday and then stops again until Saturday.
  10. The new front page is, for me, change for the sake of change. Not an improvement as far as I can see.
  11. Some, if not all, of the Linbury performances are included in the What's on link. No prices but the one's I have looked at appear to run for between 1 hour and 1-1/2 hours ( including interval ) Surprised about the interval, I am sure I can wait an hour before requiring refreshment. It seems "Friends" etc. will be receiving an email concerning booking dates. Very last minute.
  12. Have to agree with you Serenade, Leaves are Falling/ Valse Trieste we’re excellent showing great dancing and partnering with Natalia and Hallberg. “Six years later” was embarrassing to watch Natalia playing shoulder bumps for about 10 minutes ( or so it seemed ) total waste and then both dancers trembling in some sort of orgasmic passion was laughable. “Flutter” was ruined by the music, if that’s what it was, Mr. Muhly must have seen the McGregor at the RB ( Multiverse and please god I never have to sit through that again). One lovely incident at the curtain calls, Natalia must have thought they were over as when the lights came on again there she was sitting on the stage. The boys started laughing which she joined in with. well done Natalia.
  13. 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.
  14. You could be right, Alison. Someone out their will know.
  15. I believe they have to keep a percentage available to the general public of every performance to maintain their lottery funding.
  16. 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.
  17. How long is Mr Campbell in Australia?
  18. Thanks everyone who resolved this. So, two performances of "Two Pigeons" are not shown under "What's On"
  19. 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.
  20. Thank you Dave, have followed your example. Hopefully that's the end of those odious opinions.
  21. 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.
  22. Meaghan Grace Hinkis' instagram account showing her with Leticia Stock and comments sounding like one of them is leaving.
  23. 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?
  24. 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.
