  1. Opera Holland Park have announced changes to their theatre for this summer season. The capacity will be reduced from 1000 to 400 to allow for socially distanced seating. https://operahollandpark.com/your-visit/what-to-expect/ The season announcement is here https://operahollandpark.com/season-and-events/2021-season/?utm_campaign=783647_Season Launch with membership push&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Opera Holland Park&dm_i=4Y6B,GSNZ,1X9PNM,1ZIBE,1 There is no mention of any performances by the Royal Ballet School. But there does look
  2. Nice to have news of Muriel Valtat who I remember fondly, particularly in Ashton works.
  3. Don't miss this. It's really charming, really well put together and no spare fat on it at an hour's running time. The little boy with the football is brilliant. Available till midnight on Christmas Eve.
  4. Details of Royal Ballet leavers https://www.roh.org.uk/news/the-royal-ballet-announces-news-of-dancers-leaving-the-company-in-2020?utm_source=wordfly&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2020_Dec_ENews_Friends_18Dec&utm_content=version_A&emailsource=52436
  5. Only alternate rows are occupied. So in the amphi, it's row A, C, E etc that are used. B, D etc are completely empty. In the rows that are occupied there are two empty seats between each group. The boxes seem to be occupied as normal though - I couldn't be sure.
  6. Article in the Telegraph today (in today's links) about Stopgap Dance https://www.telegraph.co.uk/films/0/just-us-disabled-dancers-behind-wondrous-new-bbc-film/ David Toole appears in this new dance film BBC4 Nov 18th 11:50pm.
  7. Obituary in some detail in the NYT https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/10/arts/david-toole-disabled-dancer-with-grace-in-his-hands-dies-at-56.html
  8. Sarah Lamb came on stage for Elite still wearing her blue mask....it took her a couple of minutes to realise and then discreetly dispose of it. What strange times.....
  9. Just a reminder. There is no service on the Northern line branch between Moorgate and Kennington tomorrow 31 Oct so you might need to plot a different journey if attending BRB at Sadler's Wells.
  10. Are there cast sheets available ? I didn't spot anything that could be downloaded but I may have missed it.
  11. Obituary in the Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2020/oct/28/david-toole-obituary He had the most amazing stage presence, The work with DV8 was stunning.
  12. It does seem odd that the ROH ticketing system doesn't let you see the available seats and select a seat yourself. Sadler's Wells currently lets you do this, as do the National Theatre and the Bridge Theatre. It gives you a much better idea of what the distancing is like.
  13. I was just wondering if they are using the boxes at all. I think these are usually sold as a unit of 4, but you can't currently request more than 2 tickets for a performance. I thought I got a glimpse of people in boxes on the 9th Oct livestream, but I might be mistaken about that.
  14. Best new dance - Ingoma, Mthuthuzeli November for Ballet Black. Outstanding achievement in Dance - Sarah Baras, Ballet Flamenco Sombras, Sadler's Wells.
