  3. It's also worth checking the links to see what may be coming up around the world:
  4. Is Sadler's Well's opening specially for these performances? I was under the impression the theatre was closed until the new year.

  9. I think it is down to the individual as to whether they think the career they can have is worth it for them as a person. I remember what were, to me, really awful comments on Doing Dance about 6 or 7 years ago when a dancer was leaving BRB after about 6 years to train as a midwife. Some people's attitude was that her parents had wasted an awful lot of money on her for her to retire after such a short career. My response was that if I had been her parent then my heart would have been bursting with pride that she had achieved her dream to dance professionally and now had

  11. That is good news but it will be interesting to see how, in the nearer future, the Mariinsky and the Bolshoi get on with their re-openings. I know that there are some live shows in New Zealand but RNZB have taken the decision to cancel their upcoming tour as the number of C-19 cases is rising.
  12. I spoke to a member of the ranger service who said they have no powers to enforce clearing up. I only had my phone with me and by the time I pulled it out they were too far away for a photo to be any good. It seems to me that this has become much more of an issue since lockdown started for some unknown reason. And why people hang used bags up is absolutely beyond me. They would have been better off letting the poo lie.
  13. PEOPLE WHO DON'T PICK UP THEIR DOG POO!!! I was on the beach this morning when a couple with a GSD-type dog on a lead just walked off when their dog had finished its elephant-sized poo. I called after them and, of course, they ignored me. I can understand people not chasing after their dog's poo when it is in a wild area that is very unlikely to be trodden on ... but on the beach where people walk, play, dig sandcastles etc.

  16. You can register and read a couple of articles a month. That's how we can keep including Telegraph articles in Links. That is also the case with The Stage, The Times and the FT as well as some American papers.
