  5. An article about experiments in Germany re practicalities of indoor performances - an interesting read https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jul/20/german-coronavirus-experiment-enlists-help-concertgoers-tim-bendzko
  6. Having watched it live and then taking another look at the recording, it seemed to me that the sound quality on Song of the Earth had improved considerably on the recording. Live there were moments when it seemed a bit faint or unclear, but no such issues when accessing the recorded version.
  7. It is on now. Morgen was played. There was a brief phone interview with Pappano where he indicated (among other things) that the third concert would feature the young singers - I assume the Jette Parker artists.
  8. Feel slightly surprised that the ROH didn't give a direct link to where you can register with Vimeo. Basic membership is free but there are varying levels of paid-for membership as well. I created an account there after buying the ticket - it needs a different password. You get an email from them to which you need to reply in order to create the account. I am wondering if you can watch the stream live from the link the ROH gives you in the confirmation email but to watch later you will need to go via the Vimeo site.
  9. I did enjoy seeing the DTH creole Giselle. I did see it in London as Jane describes here (at the Coliseum I think, in the mid 80s). I also remember their version of Firebird, though that might not have been on the same visit (did they come back the next year?). As I recall it, at the conclusion of Firebird, the Firebird herself descends on wires from above the stage above the celebratory tableau. I thought she was very brave. Does anyone else remember this ?
  10. I think the Spanish Dance in the ENB version is also Ashton. You can see Monica Mason teaching it in one of the Ashton Foundation masterclasses via this link http://www.frederickashton.org.uk/rediscovered17.html
  11. The Old Vic is to stream a performance for a limited number of paying customers. Interesting to see if anyone else takes this approach. https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2020/may/27/claire-foy-matt-smith-live-stream-lungs-in-bid-to-save-old-vic-coronavirus-pandemic
  12. Dutch National Ballet have two mixed bills by Hans van Manen coming up. Until May 10th "Trois Gnossiennes is a wonderful pas de deux about surrender, trust and harmony to the quiet music of Satie. Solo is a raging relay, a 'solo' for three, because, as Van Manen stated at the time, Bach's Violin Partita cannot be danced by one person because of its murderous tempo. Immediately after the premiere, the ballet was already labelled 'a masterpiece in six minutes'. Adagio Hammerklavier is now truly a classic, inspired by the adagio in Beethoven's music, Van Manen explored
  13. The Royal did Ballo in 2011/12 - details on the performance database here, with many familiar names - Nunez, Cuthbertson, Bonelli, Morera, Kish, Polunin among them http://www.rohcollections.org.uk/production.aspx?production=23325
