  1. Due to my stupid mix up with dates, and thanks to Darlex's calmness, these are back on sale : Romeo and Juliet - Ball and Cuthbertson - Tues 26 Mar 7.30 SCS D3 and D4 £11.00 each. I can email the tickets or hand over on the night. Please send a PM as well as posting here if you are interested.
  2. For sale - Romeo and Juliet - Ball and Cuthbertson - 23 Mar 7.30 SCS D3 and D4 £11.00 each. I can email the tickets or hand over on the night. Please send a PM as well as posting here if you are interested.
  3. I have just had a fairly up-against-a-brick-wall phone conversation with someone in ENB marketing about the post on their site which has great pictures of all sorts of enticing things - ALL the dancers pictured are name-checked except Matthew Golding and Ana Tsyganova who are there sort of "generically" advertising the upcoming Cinderella. All I got was that, as they are not members of the company, (neither is Brooklyn Mack - duly name-checked) they don't have to be credited. I think this is a bit off!
  4. No John - not difficult. Our tortoises waken after 5 months of quasi-death in the fridge and immediately make a) meaningful eye-contact and b) for the nearest dandelion flower.... We like to think this is insight....! Hmm, not sure how relevant this is after all. Sorry!
  5. A1 and A2 for sale (first circle left side, ie over the piano keyboard) in the Linbury for 7.45 on Thurs 24th Jan - £25.00 each. I have e-tickets so could email . Please send a PM as well as a note here if you are interested.
  6. We'd love any 2 (not necessarily together) SCS places for this performance. Thanks ....
  7. Thank you, both! ... I also remember a slightly earlier booking date for the last Bolshoi season than the various Friends/General dates on the ROH site.
  8. I can't track down the booking dates for this Bolshoi season - can anyone point me in the right direction, please? There doesn't seem to be any mention of it on the ROH website, I don't think.
  9. The evening tickets have now gone, but the matinee tickets are still available.
  10. Let's see ... £45 each for the matinee and £70 each for the evening?
  11. Due to the intervention of a family wedding and being told I HAVE to go, I have for sale Sat 13th Oct 1.30 Stalls Circle A18 and A19 at £58.00 each (Hirano/Hamilton cast) Sat 13th Oct 7.00 Stalls Circle B32 and B33 at £85.00 each (Watson/Osipova cast). Any takers? (And feel free to make a sensible offer if you wish). I can email the tickets.
  12. Many thanks, Lynette. We shall certainly investigate the Palacio de Bellas Artes.
  13. Hello, I’m not sure this is the right place for this post : dear Moderators, please move it if necessary... We are travelling and have reached South America... I wonder if anyone has any thoughts or tips about Ballet or contemporary dance that we might see? We are in Santiago at present, but will be leaving before the next performances, it seems. In Buenos Aires we have tickets for a Gala and for Corsaire in the Colon (twice), and in Montevideo for a Bolshoi Giselle in the cinema and for the Sodre’s Sleeping Beauty (twice). As I don’t speak Spanish and only read it at a snail’s pace these bookings have been agonising! Mexico in May has so far defeated me : Monterrey? Mexico City? Help! Finally, if anyone reading this lives in any of these cities and would like to meet us for a coffee, we would love to have contact to fellow dance lovers! Many optimistic thanks! Simon
  14. We had a wonderful evening of ballet in the cinema, and I shall not comment further on the dancing, as others have so eloquently said all I would have done. However, re the two presenters... My tuppence worth is this : one was enthusiastic, likeable, professional, male and black, which in these days of outreach and the absolute necessity of bringing ballet, and all that it can do for us, to a wide public is ticking all the right boxes. The other is enthusiastic but makes mistakes in her parsing and reading which render some of the sentences gobbledygook and others just odd. Changeling = challenging? Astaire = Ashton? New worlds of possibilities open up, but this is not how the Royal Ballet should be presenting (yes, presenting) itself to the world. Rant over, until, I fear, next time.
