  1. Thanks for this, he was the main reason I booked to see this cast!
  2. Hope it does finish at 10.15pm, I may or may not be able to stay to find out
  3. I've just checked and the running times are on the website at last, 25m, interval 25m, 55m, interval 25m, and 35m, finish 10.45pm.
  4. I visited the Box Office on Russell Street about 2 weeks ago, to hand in a ticket for resale, and to ask if they could print me out a Friday Rush ticket as I don't have a printer, and they were most helpful too, probably glad to get a customer.
  5. I think that was because it was the cinema night, I've noticed they do that at the last moment, it would be lovely to have these details for all performances!
  6. And Cesar Corrales has been replaced by Luca Acri as the Blue Boy on Wednesday and Thursday evening!
  7. Very glad I bought one of the few (not very good) remaining tickets for the Matthew Ball cast at SW yesterday, there is an article today in the Sunday Times Culture section, and now your review confirms that it's going to be very special! The article says Matthew Bourne wanted to replace the Fergie girl with a Meghan, but didn't have time!

    Upcoming DVD/Blu-ray Releases

    Yes, these are the ballets on this DVD, the triple bill but omitting Daphnis and Chloe and substituting Les Patineurs. Am beginning to think D an C wasn't recorded for some reason, it was last on the triple bill.
  9. I enjoyed last night's performance so much, surprising that an amphi seat only 5 rows down from last time enabled me to hear most of the recorded voices, better view too, so Unknown Soldier was much better second time round, I saw the same cast and was even more moved by the death scene, don't think the misty glow of the final scene works though. Infra looked amazing, a modern masterpiece, and the dancers were superb, I especially liked Akane Takada and Tristan Dyer, he is developing a strong stage presence, and she can do no wrong for me, also Yasmine Naghdi and Calvin Richardson were beautiful. I kept hearing one piece of music as I was wandering through the supermarket today! Saw the second cast of SIC this time, Sarah Lamb was so slow and controlled in the pdd, it looks very difficult, but dancing with Reece Clarke probably made her feel very secure, I love the final exquisite pose of the pdd. Great cast with Yuhui Choe and Marcelino Sambe, many whoops and cheers from behind me throughout.

    Dear Mr. Taylor

    They might need Sherlock Holmes to help them find the Box Office and what's on. I have to say I used to treat the National Theatre the same way as people are treating the ROH, but there were always lots of current brochures and leaflets about, plus the Box Office was right by the main entrance.
  11. There are a few tickets for all performances on sale now!
  12. Regarding cast sheets, they don't need to waste any more time and money in new designs, just bring back the ones that were in use for Bayadere and Mayerling!

    Dear Mr. Taylor

    I also think it's very unfortunate that the ROH has taken this particular time to go "paper-free", not such clear cast lists as before, no cast change lists readily available, and no information at all about what's on today, this week, how many tickets available, nothing, apart from the costume displays which I really appreciate you wouldn't know you were in an opera house!
