  1. Flowers in Giselle

    Peter Wright is very insistent on it being suicide, to make sense (in ballet terms!!) of subsequent events
  2. Flowers in Giselle

    and another thing - when Hilarion runs on being chased by the Wilis - what happened to his lamp? (he seemed pretty detirmined not to forget it at the start of the act!!)
  3. Monochrome ballet

    Monotones I is green (ish) As I recall how about Suite en blanc. I don’t recall much colour beyond the dancer’s rosy cheeks and lips
  4. they have the Insight next week - and neither have even been named yet! (unless someone knows different that is)
  5. Both Foteini and I were at the awards ceremony at the Barbican, and took some photos before (with the nominees and their certificates), during, and after the presentations. Here are some photos of the event.... Winners! © Foteini Christofilopoulou. Courtesy of DanceTabs / Flickr ENB nominees © Dave Morgan. Courtesy of DanceTabs / Flickr See more...

  7. A small addition to the above - if you do post a highly critical post, have the courage of your convictions and post it with your full name, not a pseudonym Dave Morgan
  8. To be fair, they got the Friends general because Natalia Osipova was poorly, so they were late subs
  9. Extend editing time

    use Word/Notepad to construct your posting if its a long one such as a review (where you can proof-read and adjust to your heart's content) - then copy/paste it into posting field when happy with it. If just replying to someone else's post, 30mins should be more than enough I would have thought
  10. Flowers in Giselle

    what i want to know is - how come we never hear the chimes for 1am, 2am and 3am? And i would have thought dawn was more like 5am too....
  11. That might be so she can conduct the onstage band as well (that would be my guess)
  12. The dancers may not be 'actually' barred by their companies from commenting, but in practise I think they are strongly discouraged from interacting on forums such as this one. Its unusual that any would comment on a Facebook posting or whatever too. At least, that's my take on it, I don't have any insider information as such - but I can't ever remember an active dancer posting on here defending themselves or colleagues
