  1. Wanted: Osipova/Shklyarov 5 April Manon

    Thank you all for your very kind responses, I've now found a ticket.
  2. Really interested in a ticket for Manon Osipova/Shklyarov on 5th of April. Looking for something in stalls circle preferably (standing is fine). Just saw a few get posted and I missed them. Thank you in advance for your help.
  3. Hi there, would love to have this ticket! Will PM you now.
  4. Unfortunately no longer able to go, so 2 stalls tickets available for the ENB 28 October matinee performance (2.30pm) of Akram Khan's Giselle at the Liverpool Empire. 2 tickets Row A (but apparently row 5 is the front row in the theatre, so these are about 5 rows back). Performance begins at 2.30pm. Were £34.50 each full price but would take less, as I'd like for them to go to someone who will enjoy the performance. Please DM me if you'd like them. These are paper tickets and I can post them.

    I think it's now available for purchase from iTunes, as I was able to buy it yesterday. Not sure about countries/regions.
  10. Do you go to the Stage Door?

    NYCB ballerina Megan Fairchild answered a question about stage door fans in her Ask Megan! show podcast a while back. Can be listened to here at the top of the page: http://www.premierdancenetwork.com/ask-megan/page/3/
  11. Audience Behaviour

    Thanks Alison, maybe I will if it ever happens again. I just felt a bit awkward about asking the ushers, because the children were really doing their best (they were even shushing each other) and obviously enjoying it. I don't have many excuses regarding the people behind me with their phones. I guess I just wasn't able to get completely immersed in the ballet for various reasons, and after a long day at work decided to go home. It was the first time as a regular ballet attendee where I'd noticed any issues in the audience that were distracting. I also don't go to the Coliseum very often.
  12. Audience Behaviour

    Ended up leaving Cinderella last night at the Coliseum during the first interval to a combination of 4 very young children (approx. 6 years old) in the front row of the Upper Circle, directly in front of me. They were very sweet and did their best but just too much whispering, popcorn rustling and water bottle plastic popping to allow for me to get into the ballet. Combined with the 4 teenage girls behind me eating sweets and their mobiles vibrating throughout, I just couldn't get into the ballet and decided to cut my losses and go home.
  13. Thank you Janet, will do! I'm so pleased you enjoyed reading about it; a truly special event.
  14. I was lucky enough to have a chance to attend this fantastic event. My friend and I wrote some of our thoughts about it on our blog, link here. http://pasdeblog.com/sliver-of-sky-by-ludovic-ondiviela-review/ We also got to conduct a short interview with Ludovic Ondiviela before the premier, if anyone is interested in reading it. http://pasdeblog.com/sliver-of-sky-by-ludovic-ondiviela/ Please let me know if it's not okay to post this here, I would be happy to delete if it doesn't follow the balletcoforum guidelines. I just thought it was such a great event for a really touching cause, and the passion of the choreographer and dancers was so apparent throughout. A very inspiring evening.
