  1. This is available now for streaming. Recorded about 10 years ago. Where are the students who appeared in it now ? I'm sure that some people out there will know. And, by the way, why do I have nagging memories of Martin Harvey in Peter and the Wolf ? An earlier version ? Seems like there was one back in 1995. Your memories please ?
  2. More on this here - seems to have grabbed quite a bit of attention https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2020/mar/26/peter-wyngarde-memorabilia-up-for-auction the snakeskin jacket is ....striking, shall we say.
  3. Not dance, I know, but the National Theatre are streaming some of their filmed productions on YouTube in April. Details of productions and dates here https://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/at-home Each play will be up for seven days. Initially includes One Man Two Guvnors (James Corden - this was very funny live) Jane Eyre Treasure Island Twelfth Night
  4. Does anyone recall William Tuckett's The Sandman, a film made for Channel 4 (If I remember correctly). Very creepy and atmospheric . Based on the E.T.A Hoffman storey. It was made in 2000 and had a terrific cast (Mukhamedov, Rojo, Yanowsky and I think Adam Cooper too. ) I haven'y found much trace of it, but the memory of it has lingered nevertheless.
  5. From 2017 I think. Not available for very much longer. Sorry if we've had this already, but it's very much worth your time.
  6. As well as Mayerling there was also repeat of the documentary Ballet's Dark Knight: Sir Kenneth MacMillan. Available on iplayer here for 28 days https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0b2gjbl/ballets-dark-knight-sir-kenneth-macmillan
  7. Yes, I got through in the end. Very odd though. As if they hadn't done all the steps to make the tickets properly available at 9am.
  8. Not working at all right now. Whatever I try to add to package I get an "unknown error". Hmmmm.
  9. Tony Hall will take up a new role as chair at the National Gallery https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/bbc-chief-tony-hall-national-gallery-a4339431.html So not retiring as such - changing role.
  10. Even the programme booklet is well produced, which isn't always a given on these sorts of occasions. For the curious, there is a complete list of all the repertoire ENB has ever performed along with date ranges and numbers of performances. I hadn't realised for example that the Khan Giselle has now had 90 performances: the Skeaping version 409. And Apollo has been performed 158 times. It sheds light on lots of corners of the rep that are unfamiliar. Lots of detail on the company's history, and reminiscences from former members.
  11. The coaching details used to appear on cast sheets previously, but were a casualty when they briefly changed to the unpopular "open up" much smaller cast sheets. They reverted to the original size, but the coaching details were not reinstated.
  12. Odd, isn't it, that details of who has been coaching the principals appear on these cast sheets for the cinema relay, but no longer appear on the cast sheets at the ROH. If you see it live you have to acquire a programme to get those details.
  13. There's an article on the V&A website from the time of the exhibition in 2017 celebrating his 80th birthday which has a number of photos https://www.vam.ac.uk/blog/news/photographing-people-and-performance-crickmay-at-80
  14. There's lots to look forward to from the big companies of course, but I'm looking forward to some performances from smaller groups as well , for example Russell Maliphant at the Coronet in February, Viviana Durant'es company at the Barbican in Feb, and Mark Bruce at Wilton's in March. Very curious to see how ENB's new Khan work turns out too.
  15. Oops. Apologies . My mistake.I think I got that muddled with some other guest appearance elsewhere.
