  2. I think it was Stanislaw Wegrzyn but can't be certain. Maybe others could confirm?
  3. Since the upgrade, some pictures seem to have remained but, on both my PC and my iPad, some have disappeared (including mine). Have others noticed this?
  4. There was a photo in the print edition of today's Guardian. I can't find it on line but have scanned it. Apologies for the low resolution. It was the only way I could reduce the size of the file so that I could post it here.
  5. Just received from the ROH "Following feedback from our audiences, we have taken the decision to re-designate some of the seats/standing spaces in the Linbury Theatre as having a restricted view. This means that audience members in these spaces may not be able to see all of the stage. As your seat/standing space has an affected sightline, we would like to offer you the opportunity to exchange or refund your ticket should you wish. If you have any questions or would like us to refund or exchange your ticket please contact our Box Office team on +44 (0)20 7304 4000 (Monday–Saturday: 10am–8pm) with details of your booking. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused."
  6. As I’ve posted elsewhere, that limit was lifted months ago. Their mistake has been that they haven’t updated the website to show that the limit has been lifted. This might well have affected the families of the RBS students as well as Friends of CG and the general public.
  7. That was my point,Tony. Espada and Mercedes have substantial roles in this production but the above synopsis fails to take account of them. Edited to add that I suppose it could be argued that they don't contribute much to the main story line. Maybe that's why they've been left out of the synopsis?
  8. Just managed to upload the second page. I'd be grateful if a Moderator would remove the post I made when I was having trouble uploading it. As you can see, there's no mention of Mercedes or Espada in this synopsis. Maybe somebody with a programme from the revival could check if the synopsis was updated at that time?
  9. I've scanned the synopsis page from the 2013/14 programme. The Forum website won't allow me to upload both pages to this posting so I'll put the second page on another posting. I hope this doesn't break Forum guidelines.
  10. The information on the website is out of date. They lifted the limit some time ago. I can't remember when or how we were informed but I was able to buy a couple of extra tickets at the beginning of November.
  11. I puzzled over this for some time, LinMM. Are you referring to the seating plan I posted last August? If so, the Upper Circle is at the top of the plan. The double letter seats at the bottom of the plan are at the side of the Stalls. Did you think all the seats at the sides were in the Upper Circle?
  12. Just checked those seats for A Man of Good Hope. A9 is marked as 'obstructed by safety rail' and is £20 whereas A10 is not marked as restricted and is £35!!
