  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.

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

    I absolutely loved his acting in Khan's Giselle
  7. Cesar Corrales resigns from ENB

    Interesting that Rojo's statement on Corrales leaving doesn't mention him at all!
  8. Cesar Corrales resigns from ENB

    So pleased he's staying in London and I'm excited to see him with the RB. Another blow for ENB though, especially as he was only promoted to principal this year.
  9. I know that Campbell will be amazing and I was surprised he wasn't cast in the first place, but I was intrigued to see Sambe in a dramatic role I hope he's back onstage soon.
  10. And opening night as well so they'll be reviewed. Can't wait to see this partnership again!
  11. The Royal Ballet's put the whole thing up on YouTube now in 2 parts. Nearly 5 hours. I know what I'll be doing tonight!
  12. No casting for Hilarion though 😔 I'd love to see cesar corrales.
  13. That's a shame. I always wished to see more of him outside of the contemporary reportoire.
  14. Dance on terrestrial TV

    Can't wait to sob to this in the privacy of my own home!
