  1. I have enjoyed his performances and wish him all the very best for the future. I am sorry he is leaving.
  2. It must have been the cinema experience putting you off! The other cinema was full with a very well-behaved appreciative audience, although they did bring the odd glass of wine in with them. No food though!
  3. Very ironic! I was in the Arts Picturehouse. I agree about the entrances and exits - characters just kind of materialised on stage out of the gloom, and so it didn't always make sense. Lord Capulet on the stairs at the end of Act 2 is a case in point as Lady Capulet was just gesturing into the blackness.
  4. Hi - I"m now looking for a SCS for Friday, having just discovered that it's Kish's last performance. Is there one out there? Hoping so, Thanks Jacky (If only they'd announced it sooner!)
  5. That's true, Dave, but you can usually make out a slight movement as they go through!! Last night there was just blackness ..... and also times when the dancers disappeared into the dimness at the sides of the stage until re-emerging into the spotlight ....and it wasn't intentional! It didn't matter for me, but I'm sure that others less familiar with the ballet might have missed quite a lot!
  6. Just a question - did anyone else find the cinema stream very dark? I was in Cambridge and even though I knew what to look for the whole stage was so dark that for example the monks entering the tomb were completely invisible, so no chance of seeing Romeo at all. It was the same all through - Tybalt’s entrance down the steps in Act 2 was almost impossible to see if you didn’t know where to look. Even some of the market scenes were hard to see. I’d love a DVD but don’t know whether this would be a problem or whether it was just a transmission issue.
  7. Ah - thanks. I just remember that first performance, and it was very emotional. Didn’t realise it was so long ago!
  8. Wasn’t Yanowsky’s Manon with Kenneth Greve? I was there and I agree it was quite something!
  9. I agree - she was stunning as Juliet, and I was really hoping she'd get the chance to do Manon. Her performances are so thoughtful and nuanced - her Manon would have been something special! I'd love to see her as Tatiana - wonder if she'll get the chance ....?
  10. Maybe this is in the wrong thread, but thinking about Stix-Brunel's nuanced and thoughtful Juliet, I'd love to see her as Tatiana!
  11. It’s so interesting how we see things differently. I found the afternoon with Stix-Brunel and Hirano on a totally different level. It’s been a while since any performance of R and J moved me to tears, but this afternoon had me in floods. Her performance was so nuanced that she was totally believable and her emotions were raw. For me she was a complete Juliet. I agree about Ball’s Tybalt, which was outstanding, but otherwise this evening I was unmoved. Sorry!
  12. I only had one email when Michelle posted a ticket for sale this afternoon, so it seems to have settled down. Thank you! Jacky
  13. Yes, me too - I get 8 each time. I can't see how to stop it ... It's only been happening in the last few days Jacky
