    Ballet- watching! Drawing & Illustration, classical music, playing piano & flute, singing, blogging on mental health & spiritual development.

    My favourite dancers are Alina Cojocaru, Marianela Nunez, Dorothee Gilbert, Irina Kolesnikova, Edward Watson, Matthew Golding & Steven McRae. I haven't seen many of the Bolshoi or Mariinsky dancers perform but would absolutely love to!

    My favourite ballets are Don Quixote ( I love leaving the theatre uplifted), The Nutcracker, Swan Lake & Mayerling. I also particularly love Northern Ballet's R&J.

  1. The Royal Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker has just arrived on Netflix- I was slightly astonished to say the least, but very happy to see it! The cast includes Anna-Rose O’Sullivan as Clara, Marcelino Sambe as the Nutcracker/Nephew, Marianela Nunez as the SPF, and Vadim Muntagirov as the Prince. I believe this is the first time this recording has been available to watch other than on DVD/Blu-Ray. It is certainly the first ballet Netflix has shown. Well done Netflix!
  2. So many wonderful moments from the gala, but my standouts were Magri/Ball in Carousel, Watson/Richardson/Takada in Woolf Works, Within the Golden Hour, and everyone in Elite Syncopations, though I thought Benjamin Ella stood out in the male quartet- loved his style and easiness with the music. I really enjoyed seeing so many pieces I hadn’t seen before. I also thought the orchestra sounded really fresh and vibrant- I don’t know if it was to do with the placement in the stalls, or the young conductor I didn’t recognise, but I thought they sounded amazing! It was
  3. There are so many documentaries I would love to see again, particularly the special on Alina Cojocaru. I think there was another for her partnership with Johan Kobborg too. But any Royal Ballet documentaries would be most welcome. I'd also love to see the latest RB Swan Lake again, as I recorded it on my previous Sky box and have since upgraded to a different box, so lost the recording. It was great to see Mayerling the other day though, I thought Sarah Lamb was divine!

  8. Yes I have and I have left a review on Amazon. My disc was perfect and I had no issues. Beautiful all round.
  9. I don't suppose you can remember who Leanne Benjamin replaced? It was nagging at me the other day as I couldn't remember. I'm wondering if it was Miyako Yoshida?
  10. I sat on the back row of the circle for Les Miserables at the Hippodrome. It was fine sight-wise, but I would definitely want to be further forward if I went again, it just felt a long way away!
