  1. The orchestra in the pit was a fairy modest size for this triple bill. If the ROH was ever going to reinstate the seating in those areas of the stalls circle closest to the stage, this would have seemed to be an opportunity. But they didn't. So maybe we should conclude that those seats are gone for good ?
  2. There was a notice up by the bar in the amphi (on Tues this week) that an exhibition on Fonteyn was beginning to be installed and would be completed in about a week's time. There were just a few empty cases at the time - it wasn't clear how extensive this exhibition was going to be, but if anyone spots further developments, please let us know.
  3. There seem to be 35 tickets now available for the previously sold out 4 June performance. (at lest at time of posting...)
  4. Jonathan Goddard was terrific. In yellow if you are catching up on the live stream.

  6.

  7. I noticed from the cast sheet from Saturday's matinee that Guest Principal Coaches were given as Leanne Benjamin, Viviana Durante and Robert Tewsley. Benjamin and Durante are certainly names you might expect and have previously coached at the RB. But I don't recall Robert Tewsley as a coach before. Was he (very briefly) with the RB ? Does anyone recall him as Romeo elsewhere in his career ? I understood (from the streamed Insight) that Watson was coaching, but he doesn't get a mention on the cast sheet - presumably because he's not a guest.
  8. The Barbican's Night of 100 Solos on Tues April 16th, celebrating Merce Cunningham, will be live streamed.

Details here https://www.barbican.org.uk/whats-on/2019/event/night-of-100-solos-a-centennial-event
  9. I suspect that the filters have been coded so that they select on the basis of OR rather than AND which I suspect many of us might prefer. So you get opera or cinema broadcasts ie masses of results, not Opera cinema broadcasts. You can't use the filters to narrow down what you are looking for.
  10. By the way, on Monday the Grayson Perry frontcloth was not there. Was it only used for the opening night ? Or was Monday a glitch and it has subsequently reappeared ?
  11. Links to all the featured segments are available here on demand https://www.bbc.co.uk/events/errz3d/play/p075mx13 Very much worth your time. Scroll down , then across for the considerable number of segments available. A few glitches on the live transmission - each segment didn't appear immediately, you needed to keep refreshing and couldn't always get it until 3 Mins in or so (and so missed any intro and context for each). This may be better in the recording. The BBC made a real effort to present from around the UK so there are representations from Birmingham, Belfast, Wales, London, Scotland and others.
  12. It was extremely brief, just a couple of minutes. Mainly about the recent film.
  13. For Orpheus in the Underworld, the choreographer is given as Ella Murfitt. Do they in fact mean Etta Murfitt (as in Matthew Bourne's New Adventures) ? I noted the designer was Les Brotherston, so it seemed likely. I can't seem to find an Ella Murfitt choreographer......
  14. As well as the running order for 5 April provided above, here's a link to all the material available on demand via i player https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/CryZGNzjl8y2F4ZRYb5PWx/dancepassion-on-demand Scroll down - there's a lot of material there.
  15. Currently one ticket in the stalls for the Fonteyn. But I suspect these vanish quickly There do seem to be tickets at all levels currently for the mixed bill on 13th and 14th, with better availability on the 7th.
