  1. I saw his Barbarians in Brighton and wished I had ear plugs. I like loud music but this was unpleasantly loud.

    Dance on Sky Arts

    Yay, it's Nunez/Muntagirov!

    Dance on Sky Arts

    Just went to record it and from the thumbnail it looks like Osipova/Acosta.
  4. I find that I generally get more into it when I can see the facial expressions, so the cinema screenings are great for me!

    Royal Ballet 2018/19 Season

    I saw both casts and I found Morera/Bonelli more moving, nuanced and absorbing. Plus there's already a Watson DVD, so I'd love to have their performance recorded.
  7. It's that strange wording again and doesn't mention injury, so hopefully Morera is OK.
  8. Just came from this evening's performance. No cast change announcement, so I was surprised to see Hayward as Perdita rather than Takada.
  9. I was moved by how feather light she was in Act 2, especially in the series of lifts. As a cockney geezer near me in the audience said, 'If she jumped in a puddle there wouldn't be a splash!' And Alexander shaking his head no when she started slipping away from him again at the end. I hope they get a cinema relay next time as I'd love to see their faces close up and I think this partnership needs to be recorded. I'll be at today's matinee as well and will try to make it to the escalator.

    NYCB in Copenhagen August 2018

    You can buy tickets from that website but I found it quite confusing. I just linked to it because it showed the programme details but actually i bought them here as it was easier http://www.billetlugen.dk/tickets.html?affiliate=DKA&kuid=542228&doc=artistPages/tickets&action=tickets&fun=artist&language=en
  11. I saw on New York City Ballet's website that they're performing in Copenhagen 15-19 August. There didn't seem to be a big announcement or press release, I just happened upon it and thought forum members might be interested. I've been desperate to see them and kicked myself for not seeing them in Paris, so I've got my tickets They're doing 3 triple bills plus a gala.

  12. The casting of Manon is a real problem in that I don't think I've ever wanted to see so many casts!
  13. I thought the tutus in ENB's Corsaire were unflattering. They're way too long and droopy and make the dancers' legs look short.
