  1. Jürgen Rose, who is 81!, says in the interview that the workshops still look the same as 50-60 years ago when he started working with Cranko.
  2. That’s Lukas Bjørneboe Brændsrød http://www.roh.org.uk/people/lukas-bjrneboe-brndsrd
  3. Also in the News section of the ROH website: the Genée will be renamed the Margot Fonteyn International Ballet Competition from next year in honour of Dame Margot’s centenary. The competition will be hosted at the ROH in September 2020. https://www.roh.org.uk/news/royal-opera-house-to-host-royal-academy-of-dances-prestigious-ballet-competition-in-september-2020
  4. Beauty at £145?!? Just as well I don’t particularly like that ballet. Presumably Swan Lake will be the same, or even higher.
  5. Sorry I got ahead of things, Pappano’s sabbatical season is 2020/21.
  6. Pappano’s presence isn’t strictly required for the launch as he’ll be on sabbatical next season.
  7. Would you have said that to Fonteyn? Or Ferri? I for one am enjoying the range of artistry we get to experience in this run.
  8. I’d think the BBC will look for someone younger to diversify the panel. Maybe Stacey Dooley as a highly popular past winner, though she might be too similar to Claudia Winkleman as a slightly “quirky” personality. Ore Oduba seems a fair guess.
  9. I found Kevin O’Hare’s remark towards Leanne Cope at yesterday’s Insight event “What makes a Royal Ballet Dancer” rather disrespectful. She hosted the event, and during a discussion on post RB careers he said “ Who would have thought little Leanne would go on to lead a Broadway and West End show”. It’s the use of the adjective little I object to. I know she’s very petite but this felt wrong and unnecessary.
  10. I saw all 3 casts last week and it was the Act3 pdd between Lamb and Hirano at yesterday’s matinee that moved me the most. It was a really extraordinary performance in a ballet I don’t particularly like. Very powerful. Glad to report that the performance was filmed for Japanese TV.
  11. A friend of mine who had booked a nearby seat for cycle 2 (but was unable to go due to illness) said he was contacted by the Met Police about this incident. Obviously he couldn’t tell them anything.
  12. Yes confirmed. She said he’s helping her coach the partnering.
