  1. I actually like ENBs Nutcracker. My immediate thought on Creature was oh why do the same as Royal Ballet. Seems a duplication. However Khan is nothing like Scarlett so... I've already got my tickets this morning for Nutcracker and Cinderella on ATG priority booking and looking forward to both. Can't wait to hear about the gala show...looks like there will be a matinee on the Saturday as 3 Perfs but only Friday Saturday date given👍👍 I am thrilled that Brooklyn Mack will return hope I can get to see him.
  2. I found the amphitheatre at Garnier hellish. Seats are hard benches with your knees in the neck of person in front. Did it once never ever again.
  3. I would like to see Raymonda and the Balanchine at the Bastille if I can get a ticket. Plenty of matinees on the Balanchine run too which is great for a day trip. Was going to pass on Mayerling but the thought of Alu as Rudolph might change my mind but again without advance casting it's hard to book anything for specific dancers as tickets so fast as well plus if it's the Garnier I will think twice anyway as it's so uncomfortable.
  4. Lovely to read about the Onegins in Munich thank you. I am shortly to see Onegin in Berlin and shall report back! In the meantime I see Osipova and Hallberg are guesting in Onegin on 13th April - the ballet festival week in Munich. I am really hoping Onegin will be revived at the Royal Ballet for 19/20 and I personally put a "bid in" for Onegin with Mr O'Hare when I got a chance recently!
  5. Very happy to see a Dutch Ballet thread. I'm seeing Swan Lake shortly.
  6. I got the survey too but it was very short and I found nowhere to leave my thoughts on ticket prices. There were more questions about gender age etc than about the theatre! I thought it a waste of time because it asked so little.
  7. Yes I saw there is gala but did you see the ticket PRICES😯😯😯
  8. A documentary has been shown on German TV about John Neumeier for his 80th birthday you can watch it here, albeit mostly in german. https://www.ndr.de/fernsehen/John-Neumeier-Unterwegs,doku1370.html
  9. Its usually lively at ROH in my experience and The Bolshoi attract huge crowds too - but La Scala Milan can give a run for your money especially when Roberto Bolle is performing !! I can remember one Bolshoi visit after the stupendous matinee of DonQ with Osipova/Vasiliev when they ended up having to sit behind the security man's desk to sign autographs as there were so many fans - we were allowed in in small groups as there we SO many people that year but it worked much better because they didn't get crushed and we got our autographs in a calm and orderly fashion!
  10. Exactly what I was thinking as I was bitterly disappointed when NYCB were going to perform it in Paris but then it was pulled because of the music. I saw Vienna Waltzes once in new York and absolutely loved it. And yes I agree it would be a perfect fit for Hamburg given their recent performances of the Liebeslieder Waltzes and Brahms Schoenberg Quartet. Here's hoping🤞🤞
  11. I haven't seen the relay but the first DonQ I saw a couple of years ago was very dark. You would have thought the boffins would have sorted it this time round and lit the stage more brightly this time. They never seem to "get it" at ROH.
  12. I saw it and it made me want to visit Buenos Aires. Lovely to see ex/retired ABT star Paloma Herrera now Artistic Director teaching the dancers at Teatro Colon.
  13. Thank you for the heads up. The 2 Saturday Spartacus perfs look tempting although the ticket prices had me ruling that one out. One of the Bright Streams looks ok. Having seen Vasiliev in his earlier prime I am not sure I want to see him this time round. Quite a few new names on the DonQ rota, I was a really hoping for husband and wife team Anna Tikhomirova and Artem Ovcharenko in DonQ but alas it's not to be. I fear the ticket cost will restrict me to just a couple of perfs rather than the whole lot this time. It's not what I would call a sparkling selection especially as no Alexandrova. The only big name lady I'd like to see is Shipulina.
