  1. Casting for the Royal Albert Hall now announced as follows (Prince/SPF/Clara): December - 28: Cesar Morales, Momoko Hirata, Karla Doorbar 29: Matinee - Brandon Lawrence, Celine Gittens, Arancha Baselga 29: Evening - Tyrone Singleton, Jenna Roberts, Laura Day 30: Matinee - Mathias Dingmann, Miki Mizutani, Karla Doorbar 30: Evening - Brandon Lawrence, Celine Gittens, Arancha Baselga 31: Matinee - Tyrone Singleton, Jenna Roberts, Laura Day 31: Evening - Momoko Hirata, Cesar Morales, Karla Doorbar Some nice casting, but I'm a bit disappointed that London isn't going to get the chance to see the Lawrence/Matthews partnership in this ballet, which is just magical. Ah well, fingers crossed for Sleeping Beauty!
  2. I cannot find another thread for this but wondered if they have announced Nutcracker casting yet for the London Coli season. The website is a bit frustrating as you can go into Nutcracker but it wants to take you straight to the booking at the Coli and I would like to see casting first if possible for the days I can go. Have I missed a trick from their website? Or perhaps too soon for casting announcements for December etc? Many thanks anyone with any more info
  3. Have we, as yet, got much in the way of actual casting for the mixed MacMillan celebrations? I for one would appreciate knowing if, for example, there are two different casts for Concerto/Baiser over the next couple of nights (and if so, which they are, in case I needed to choose!) Someone posted the ENB Song of the Earth casting somewhere else, that I know, but I'm not aware of anything else.
  4. Manon casting is now up on the ROH website. so pleased to see Bonelli and Morera cast together after their sensational Mayerling!
  5. The Khan Giselle casting for all venues is now on the ENB website: https://www.ballet.org.uk/production/akram-khan-giselle/#cast-section Just discovered the link doesn't take you straight to the casting page. You have to click on 'see casting for all dates' I've now pasted the casting below: Liverpool Empire, Wed 25 October 2017, 7.30pm Tamara Rojo Giselle James Streeter Albrecht Liverpool Empire, Sat 28 October 2017, 7.30pm Tamara Rojo Giselle James Streeter Albrecht Liverpool Empire, Sat 28 October 2017, 2.30pm Fernanda Oliveira Giselle Fernando Bufalá Albrecht Liverpool Empire, Fri 27 October 2017, 7.30pm Erina Takahashi Giselle Aitor Arrieta Albrecht Liverpool Empire, Thu 26 October 2017, 7.30pm Fernanda Oliveira Giselle Fernando Bufalá Albrecht Liverpool Empire, Thu 26 October 2017, 2pm Crystal Costa Giselle Aitor Arrieta Albrecht Sadler's Wells, Wed 20 September 2017, 7.30pm Tamara Rojo Giselle James Streeter Albrecht Sadler's Wells, Thu 21 September 2017, 2pm Fernanda Oliveira Giselle Fernando Bufalá Albrecht Sadler's Wells, Thu 21 September 2017, 7.30pm Erina Takahashi Giselle Isaac Hernández Albrecht Sadler's Wells, Fri 22 September 2017, 2.00pm (NB website has 7.30pm but this must be a typo) Crystal Costa Giselle Aitor Arrieta Albrecht Sadler's Wells, Fri 22 September 2017, 7.30pm Tamara Rojo Giselle James Streeter Albrecht Sadler's Wells, Sat 23 September 2017, 2.30pm Fernanda Oliveira Giselle Fernando Bufalá Albrecht Sadler's Wells, Sat 23 September 2017, 7.30pm Erina Takahashi Giselle Isaac Hernández Albrecht
  6. I'm writing with a question...well, actually, several. My guess is that these questions have been asked and answered before. I did some searches, but a "Royal Opera House" + "tickets" and variants thereof turn up a zillion different threads, so I gave up. I have attended the Royal Opera House occasionally--usually when work has taken me to the UK--but not often and not recently. And I've almost never been able to plan carefully ahead of time. But this year may be different. Work will take Mr. Drewco to London in June--I'm coming with him and we plan to make a holiday of it when his work is out of the way. We hope to attend several performances of Swan Lake and, as we don't see a lot of world class ballet, we are willing to splurge on good seats if we can get them. I see on the Royal Opera House website that tickets go on sale for the general public in early April, but I have a few questions about the process: 1)When are casts likely to be announced? work dictates this trip but we have a little flexibility and casts could make a difference to our arrival/departure dates. 2)Any risk "friends" buy up much of the house before the tickets go on sale to the general public? 3)Are seats banked in all sections of the theater. I have a vague memory that Stalls circles are hardly banked at all--that row B or C for someone short, like myself, might be a disaster. (We are going to splurge if we can--but if we splurge we want to be able to see the stage). 4)Any advice about Grand Tier and Balcony seats? or sight-lines generally? Years ago I got some excellent advice on ROH stalls circles seats on an American message board and of course I remember the seats I actually sat in...But any thoughts from people here would be welcome--especially advice for short people. (My body has long since informed me that my standing room days are over.) Thanks for your patience with these questions...
  7. The casting for Giselle and The Winter's Tale has just been posted on the ROH website: http://www.roh.org.uk/productions/giselle-by-peter-wright http://www.roh.org.uk/productions/the-winters-tale-by-christopher-wheeldon Edit: Age of Anxiety casting now added. http://www.roh.org.uk/mixed-programmes/new-wayne-mcgregor-the-age-of-anxiety-new-christopher-wheeldon It will probable be some time before we know the casting of the new works.
  8. Sergei Polunin is out of M and A, no replacement announced yet. Sarah Lamb is injured, and will be replaced by Olivia Cowley as Larish tomorrow, and by Akane Takada as Mary Vetsera on Saturday evening!
  9. Some of it is currently on the ROH website: http://www.roh.org.uk/productions/alices-adventures-in-wonderland-by-christopher-wheeldon http://www.roh.org.uk/productions/sylvia-by-frederick-ashton I assume the rest of it will be there soon. Edited to add that there's currently a problem with the listed Nutcracker casting. Calvert, Kish, Maguire, Dyer and Marriott are down to do every single performance! Edited again to record that this has now been corrected. They're now down for 2 performances rather than 24!
  10. Anybody seen any casting for the two tours? I know the BRB are normally late announcing casting, but surely they must know by now. Or am i just missing the links?
  11. Was surprised to see most of the casting is on the ROH website for Summer, can't see it anywhere here yet, sorry I can't copy but can remember M and A casting as: Yanovsky/Bolle Ferri/Bonelli Osipova/TBC Lots to think about!
  12. Casting for Southampton is now up: https://www.brb.org.uk/whats-on/event/cinderella?utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=cast_lists_southampton&utm_medium=brb 25th January eve: Momoko Hirata & Joseph Caley 26th January mat: Delia Matthews & Tyrone Singleton 26th January eve: Jenna Roberts and William Bracewell 27th January eve: Momoko Hirata & Joseph Caley 28th January mat: Jenna Roberts & William Bracewell 28th January eve: Delia Matthews & Tyrone Singleton As there are 2 weeks of performances in Birmingham I assume more casts may also be in the pipeline.

  17. The casting for the mixed programme at The Lowry has been published: https://www.brb.org.uk/whats-on/event/shakespeare-triple-bill-the-dream Scroll down and click on individual performances. I regret the passing of the days when the casting for a whole week was put on one page. Can't wait to see Chi as Oberon again!
  18. I have pencilled in that, in the normal way of things, we could be receiving casting details for the Winter season in a couple of week's time, including of course the Xmas performances of Sleeping Beauty. However given the delays in casting announcements that seem to be becoming the norm, I fear that's probably overly optimistic? General Booking for the Autumn season doesn't open till the 19th July, so, although they overlap in December, I suppose any announcement re the Winter Season will await that and probably beyond! Unfortunately unlike the Ballet World, the rest of the performing arts are now booking 12-18 months ahead and one can't afford to wait. One can only hope that with the recent promotions, Mr O'Hare et al now feel they know their dancers' strengths well enough to make earlier commitments to the programme they have announced! EDIT: My apologies for there not actually being any casting information in this thread as yet, but the Autumn thread was starting to run into Winter too, and I thought it better to start a separate thread.
