  1. Northern Ballet's 'Victoria' mentioned upthread is on BBC Four on Sunday 15th December at 11pm.
  2. The filmed Romeo & Juliet starring Francesca Hayward and William Bracewell Romeo & Juliet: Beyond Words is on BBC Two on New Years Day at 5.30pm. A repeat of Dancing the Nutcracker: Inside the Royal Ballet is on BBC Two on Christmas Day at 12 noon. Essential Royal Ballet is on BBC Four on 29th December at 7pm.

  3. Romeo & Juliet: Beyond Words is on BBC Two on New Years Day at 5.30pm.
  4. It is on My5, part of their Pluto TV offering.
  5. The price seats at theatres relate to their sightlines. Birmingham Hippodrome has better sightlines than most theatres and so doesn't feel the need to offer the reduced prices that many other theatres do.
  6. There is also a documentary on Gwen Verdon on BBC4 this Saturday 3rd August at 10.30pm : Merely Marvelous - The Dancing Genius of Gwen Verdon.
  7. It is an extended version that is being premiered this year, about an hour longer.
  8. Previously discussed here with a couple of names supplied by Swissballetfan: Swan Lake- World Cup
  9. The Dance Hub building expansion is physically around and over the current BRB facilities and is for the Dance Hub, an organisation independent from BRB.
  10. All the recent ROH ballets televised on the BBC such as Woolf Works, Frankenstein, Carmen and beyond are new productions. Whether this is because it is easier to convince BBC Arts editors that new is more arty or the ROH is keener to show off its newer works I don't know. However Floss is certainly right to raise the factor of live streaming. With The Nutcracker in particular, the annual live screening in cinemas will certainly be a factor in not having a television screening as well to potentially reduce the cinema audience.

    Old Money!!

    If you are with a major High Street bank they should still accept the coins if you pay into your account but probably not the note. However the Bank of England has to honour to promise that is printed on all their notes to 'pay the bearer' if you turn up at Threadneedle Street during opening hours.
  12. No, there is no narrator in Birmingham. David Mead's review comments on a lot of the changes made for the Royal Albert Hall production: http://www.seeingdance.com/brb-albert-hall-nutcracker-29122017/
