  1. Ballet West (US not Scottish) brought a Tudor programme to the Edinburgh Festival in the early 2000s.
  2. Dance on Sky Arts

    They are broadcasting the Osipova/McRae Fille next week. Think it might be next Sunday.
  3. I reported to ENB this morning and they are working on it...
  4. I tried to time this with a flight from London, but it turned out to be much cheaper to fly from Leeds, so I'm going to have to let this one go. Don't feel too sorry for me though as I do still get two weeks in Crete! The ticket is M18, second circle, and cost £12, but is free to a good home. PM me if interested.
  5. That won't load for me (on a laptop now) - and I don't have any issues with slow internet connection. I'll try a PC later but getting a bit daft now! I'm not one for marketing team-bashing, but they also sent out the e-blast with an internal title rather than a public title ('Open for Voices of America Casting', the 'Open' presumably being as opposed to patrons/friends).
  6. Royal Ballet 2018/19 Season

    That is what dynamic pricing means (it is used by some venues). But I think in this instance, as other posters have said, they mean the plan itself.
  7. Royal Ballet 2018/19 Season

    Smashing! That's what I was after. Thank you. Edited to add that the matinee distribution is much, much better than last season. Matinees galore for some programmes and i think only one that doesn't have one at all.
  8. Royal Ballet 2018/19 Season

    Thought so. A block of dates isn't helpful for forward planning for those of us looking for weekend matinees or failing that weekend evenings...
  9. Royal Ballet 2018/19 Season

    I can't remember - when do we normally get individual dates (with matinees)?
  10. Pay what you decide was pioneered by the Arc in Stockton a good few years ago now. If you were interested you should be able to find interviews with their director Annabel Turpin online.
  11. Manon Insight

    I watched this yesterday and found it much harder to handle on the smart TV. The YouTube broadcasts were far easier to find, and to pause, rewind etc. I had to type in the entire URL that John mentions above, instead of simply finding the ROH YouTube channel in my favourites and selecting the newest addition. Can't complain as it's wonderful that these are streamed at all - but I do wonder why they decided to change to a Facebook broadcast. The insight itself was fascinating. I particularly loved watching Reece Clarke, Nicol Edmonds and William Bracewell rehearse the gentlemen.
  12. Sim, he didn't tell me about the cast change (although I already knew) and just asked me to bring in my ticket on the day to swap it for a new one. I do feel for the box office staff though.
