    Natalia Osipova -- her own projects

    There have been two: Herald Scotland on Saturday and Sunday Times on Sunday. Looks interesting (and has Jonathan Goddard) but why only two shows in London next June?

  16. For anyone who hasn't picked this up from today's links there is a very enjoyable collection of 10 very short films made by Justin Peck, featuring "the best actors of 2018" rather than dancers. It's in the New York Times Magazine. I'll say no more, but have a look.

    New ROH cast sheets

    Coated, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the new ROH ticket layout. Seems to me like another very good example of poor graphic design.
  22. Because at that stage it was unsubstantiated rumour.
