  1. I don’t think it’s the ROH who ‘do that’. Kevin O’Hare will have his own reasons for giving dancers a family or schools matinee. For example, there have been many occasions when a dancer new to a role has been cast in that way prior to an official debut.
  2. Yes her mother (Annarella) has been thanking everyone for helping her daughter on social media.
  3. Not just on the website. Speaking more generally, employees/volunteers need to be 'into' what their organisation is about, have procedures to follow and service standards to uphold.
  4. Nice, but they could have updated the accompanying script. It only takes a moment. What is it with the ROH? Most jobs they do are ‘half done’.
  5. Over the years, firstly with Men in Motion and, more recently, with Against the Stream, Ivan Putrov has sought to break the gala mould with his rather more innovative, thematic programming. Bravo, indeed.
  6. Thank you. I put Packages into the search engine and it came up with historic information.
  7. So is this snippet alongside a seat all the information there is about packages? I can't find anything anywhere else.
  8. I agree about Julia Petanova - simply lovely. She will surely do well with Norwegian Ballet and that company has been a stepping stone into The Royal Ballet in the past - definitely for Elizabeth Harrod but maybe for someone else as well?
  9. At least Kevin O'Hare abandoned his promise/threat of having a season devoted only to work created during his time as Director. Well, he has for the time being ,at least...........
  10. A piece which Valentino choreographed in a few days to fill a gap in the RB's World Ballet Day slot. Amazing. Huge congratulations. Can't quite see where Matthew Ball fits into the equation .........?
  11. You are definitely not alone, Floss 🤭 (Edited to say that the quote which has gone missing was where FLOSS said she remembered more about the designs etc of McGregor’s works than the choreography.)
  12. Not exactly the end of season you would have been hoping for. I haven't been pinged, either. Maybe there are different 'check-ins' for different parts of the house? They surely can't ping the whole audience - or can they?
  13. Good advice. The dancers must have been very exposed in the sun. But did the hats in the audience affect views of the stage?
  14. It's going to be great hearing from those lucky enough to attend. The weather is perfect! [I hope the seats are more raked than they appear to be in the photo.]
