  1. You're absolutely right, Bruce. I have a hard copy of an old seating plan. It was printed around 15 years ago so might have changed between then and the closure of the old Linbury. On this old plan there are 34 standing places in the 'middle gallery' and 10 in the 'upper gallery'. On the new plan, it looks like the standing places are situated at the sides of the Upper Circle (B1-6 and B 41-46) and at the back of the Circle (D22 - 28). If these are, indeed, the standing places, there will be only 19 of them. Having said that, there is, of course, no way of knowing whether or not these are, indeed, the standing places Edited to say that I've just had another look at the new plan and now realise that the places I mention above are definitely the standing places as they have a different symbol to the seated places.
  2. My husband has just received an invitation to name a seat in the new LInbury Theatre. He will not be accepting the invitation (the minimum price is £1000!) but the advantage of this mailing is that it came with a seating plan for the new theatre. I found it very interesting and thought it worth scanning so that you could all see it.
  3. The Australian Ballet has Sir Peter Wright's BRB production. It was filmed a few years ago (with Kevin Jackson) and shown, here in the UK, on Sky Arts. Edited for missing punctuation.
  4. Here’s one way to find the casting: Go to the ROH Home Page. Scroll down and you’ll see the calendar on the right hand side. Go to the month you’re interested in, click on the name of the month at the top of the calendar. All performances for that month should appear. Click on any individual performance and the casting will be there. Having said that, by the time booking opens for the Winter Season, the casting will probably be available in the normal place.
  5. I realise that the Side Amphi has always been in a higher band than the Upper Slips. The point I was making was that the Upper Slips are now back to their regular price - i.e. the complaints have borne fruit. However the price of the Side Amphi has remained at a higher price than before. Obviously this price is still reasonable for those who only come to a few performances but, for the ‘regulars’, this increase can make a big difference.
  6. Many thanks, Capybara. I had been told that complaints were made at that meeting about the price of the Upper Slips. I‘m glad to see that this has now been rectified for the Winter Season. However, I wasn’t aware that the increased price of the Side Front Amphitheatre had also been questioned. The price for these restricted view Side Amphitheatre seats has remained at a much higher price than before. As an example, in the Autumn Season both Side Front Amphitheatre and Front Row Upper Slips seats furthest from the stage are £21 for Nutcracker. For Don Q , in the Winter Season, the price of the Upper Slips has been brought down to £10 while the Side Amphitheatre seats have remained at a higher price (£19)
  7. Representations? Are you able to clarify?
  8. Many companies give dancers their debuts at matinée performances and, as far as I know, it's rare for these performances to be cheaper than evening ones. I'd always assumed it was because the dancers would feel less pressure at an afternoon performance and would therefore be less nervous.
  9. Sadly it looks like the days of cheaper matinée prices are a thing of the past. I've checked out the interactive seat maps for the Winter season and, as far as I can tell, the matinée prices are the same as the evening prices.
  10. Top of the item on the ROH Website: "Today, The Royal Ballet announces leavers and joiners for the 2018/19 season. As previously announced, Cesar Corrales joins The Royal Ballet as First Soloist. Former Royal Ballet School student Joseph Aumeer also joins the Company as an Artist."
  11. Seconded! He really impressed during his time at the RBS and I was disappointed when he gave up his 2016/17 Aud Jebsen apprenticeship (to dance with the Paris Opera Ballet) I was, therefore, thrilled to see his name on the list of joiners.
  12. Just noticed it's up on the ROH website: http://www.roh.org.uk/news/the-royal-ballet-announces-leavers-and-joiners-for-the-2018-19-season
  13. For each date, scroll down for the Two Pigeons cast: Jan 18 https://www.roh.org.uk/events/3vlgy Feb 5 https://www.roh.org.uk/events/4vk2p The casts you mention are for Asphodel Meadows
  14. Doesn't the Young Girl in Two Pigeons almost count as a role in a full length? https://www.roh.org.uk/events/k4xp7 https://www.roh.org.uk/events/2jz77
