  1. I'm starting a new thread as the old one is just for triple bills. The Don Q casting is now on the ROH website: https://www.roh.org.uk/productions/don-quixote-by-carlos-acosta Friday February 15 7.30 Nuñez Muntagirov Saturday February 16 Takada McRae Tuesday February 19 Takada McRae Wednesday February 20 Nuñez Muntagirov Friday February 22 Cuthbertson Ball Saturday February 23 mat Kaneko Corrales Saturday February 23 eve Nuñez Muntagirov Wednesday February 27 Kaneko Corrales Friday March 1 Takada McRae Saturday March 2 Naghdi Sambé Friday March 22 Cuthbertson Ball Monday March 25 Osipova Corrales Saturday March 30 mat Magri Campbell Saturday March 30 eve Osipova Corrales Monday April 1 Cuthbertson Ball Wednesday April 3 Naghdi Sambé Thursday April 4 Magri Campbell edited to correct April 3 casting typo
  2. I was just disappointed with the poor choice of seats left. It also shows there is a distinct need for more matinees!! Seems all the priority bookers got there first. I think they need to look at the whole booking system because Joe Public is not getting a fair crack at the whip. I got 1 DonQ where I wanted and I had to book a cheap seat for Les Patineurs which will do, but it really is not where I wanted. Thankfully I got an Insight ticket for DonQ. As I had wanted to see 5 DonQs and 2 Les Pats due to the high prices and lack of seat choices I ended up with only 1 of each. It seems ROH got its wish to exile regulars. Meanwhile I will now use the time and money to patronise other companies elsewhere.
  3. Very longwinded booking today, possibly due partly to having to cross-check the castings. I suddenly realised I only had 3 minutes to complete my booking, and was only partway through Two Pigeons, so paid for that lot, then realised I hadn't marked off which 2Ps I'd already booked, and my new purchases weren't yet showing up in my account, so I couldn't double-check! Pretty much turned my nose up at Don Q, apart from a couple of not at all good standings - sorry, Powers that Be, but if you seriously think I'm going to pay £19 for a seat with a 60% viewing restriction you've got another think coming! But can someone tell me, since for once I actually got in at 9 am on the dot, no queuing: given that the ROH has to hold back 20% of tickets for the general public, how it can be that there is only 1 ticket left in Stalls Circle for the first night of Les Patineurs at 9 am? I assumed the 20% was distributed evenly throughout the house. Oh, and the "sorry, that ticket is no longer available" box seemed to be oddly difficult to get rid of this morning!
  4. 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.

  5. Just quickly, as I want to get back to take it all in, the RB's winter casting (not included in the ROH Magazine) is now on the ROH website, although one has to search under each production. The repertoire in question is, of course: Giselle, the Wheeldon Triple Bill, and Rhapsody/Two Pigeons Some delights in store.
  6. All relatively smooth here ... got everything I wanted ... short of the Amphi standing for opening Giselle (everything was gone so had to settle for a slip at extra dosh) and no amphi standing AT ALL for ANY performance of Cav/Pag. That said the queue went through very quickly and there were no itinerant messages. Might now the ROH's website problems have been sorted for good? (If so perhaps we should just lie low rather than tempt fate.) How did others find it?
  7. This was the first day of online booking for the ROH Winter season for Supporting Friends, and once again the website was full of glitches. The operation in response to each seat request was sluggish and often ended in an error report and request to try again. Since booking opened at 9 am there was no one in the box office (opens at 10am) or the Friends office (opens at 9.30) to provide any assistance, although the telephone operator did offer the information that "they" were trying to do something about the problem. Eventually I was able to book all the tickets I wanted, although all insight evenings were fully booked, but I have pretty well given up ever getting in to one of those. However, the process was much slower and more laborious than usual. These problems have been going on ever since the ROH started online booking. Are they ever going to get it right?

I've tried, unsuccessfully, to tidy up the format. Maybe an administrator can improve on it as my time for editing is running out.
  9. I thought someone had started a thread for this during Friends' booking but can't see one, so here we go: Well, despite Terfel, Callega, Stemme, Kaufmann and more on the opera side, this seemed to go pretty well this morning. Not that there was much in the way of seats available, so I've only bought a grand total of 3 Swan Lakes and 3 Onegins, and may top up later if possible. Standing tickets were available - I got a good one, surprisingly, for an Osipova Onegin - but only in the Balcony, and that was the only one I managed to lay my hands on. Very little in the way of cheap side amphi seats. Nunez' Onegins selling pretty well, at least among the (presumably) more impecunious members of the audience. I was camping on the Onegin insight page before booking opened, and kept refreshing it, but it went instantly from Not on Sale to Sold Out! Then, less than 10 minutes after that, there were seats available, so I grabbed one while the going was good. Anyone else?
