  2. I know I wasn't going but that is dreadfully sad for all of us. I wonder if the Rep performances in Birmingham will be able to go ahead (opening on 14th December). How does this bode for RB and ENB?

The Stage has a big feature about people from the theatre world who are using their creative talents to make unusual Christmas presents, sales of which will help support them during the Covid-19 pandemic. https://www.thestage.co.uk/long-reads/christmas-gift-guide-presents-made-by-theatre-freelancers?fbclid=IwAR2yvxTXacXWmu0R88AnugPBc7Pgc6fv9HTG7hnArU2V1uYYB28v4IdNzQk
  6. A friend and I were saying exactly the same thing last night. She should have been "Damed" years ago.
  7. I've changed the title to include the company name as there are other companies doing the Nutcracker in London this year (ENB & BRB of course!)
  8. Marion was a star when I first started watching ballet and she is still a star now. Very best wishes to Marion for her (fortunately semi-) retirement.
  9. Marion Tait to step down as Assistant Director of Birmingham Royal Ballet Photo credit: Andrew Ross Marion Tait CBE will step down from her role as Assistant Director of Birmingham Royal Ballet on 31 December 2020.

Marion said: The present situation with Covid-19, has made it impossible for me to fulfil such a crucial role at
  10. Doesn’t look like it at that length. Alternative - if you look at first part right to end and leave the screen 3 small images appear. One is the link to part 2.
  11. I found it quite hard to see the 2 sections of the performance and I have no idea why it was split up in this way but I think that although it looks as though I am taking you to the same page on the website twice it should take you to the 2 links.

  12. So I was glued to my screen at 8pm on Thursday for an evening celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Sadler's Wells Royal Ballet becoming Birmingham Royal Ballet. The evening started with a zoomed speech from a Birmingham councillor saying what the company meant to the city and as well as the performed pieces it included interviews with 2 of the participants from the memorable Ballet Hoo! and about Dance Track. Carlos Acosta introduced the evening and spoke lovingly about the City of Birmingham, the company he now directs and its dancers and heritage repertoire. The dance

  14. Which is not entirely accurate. Of the current roster the following dancers have Elmhurst on their bio (around 10% of the current company): Rosanna Ely Ryan Felix Miles Gilliver Emma Price Hamish Scott Joseph Taylor Other dancers, now left, also came through Elmhurst including James Barton and Nathanael Skelton who were the first 2 accepted into the company after the relationship with the school was announced. If you look at the bios throughout the company the dancers come from very diverse backgrounds and different schools.
