  1. Do these pay streams stay available after the "live" showing. If they do, can you return to watch again.
  2. I have been watching the streaming from the ENB,NT and ROH, on the last two occasions of the RB ( Cellist and Fille ) the performance has stopped and the “loading” message appears (You Tube) on the screen. Has anyone else had this problem or is it just my broadband?
  3. Tonight just reminded me how much I miss the RB. The Elgar cello concerto was already burned in my heart having seen du Pre and Barbarolli with the Halle perform it wonderfully, now in a different genre, hearing it again within a backdrop of her relationship with Barenboin and others in her life and the illness leading to her death was beautifully portrayed by Lauren, Matty, Marci with an exceptional support cast and orchestra. Very moving; beautifully and lovingly choreographed by Cathy Marston; a total, total joy. DVD please.
  4. Separation is not just the seat either side of you it’s also seats in the row in front and also the row behind you, they are also too near. We have all seen the queues for the ladies at the intervals, how could each of those to be deep cleaned between use. Unless a vaccine is found and we can treat everyone attending it’s not going to be 2020.
  5. Having started this thread regarding extending Friends membership renewals because of the lockdown and lack of performances. For completeness I have received a reply from the Opera House which I copy the relevant part below. "Whilst your membership is a donation, we are aware that many members choose to join us in large part because of the benefits which we give in thanks for your generosity. We are in the process of evaluating how best to manage the delivery of these benefits and assessing a range of options for recognising your support whilst we are closed. I would be so grateful if you please bear with us while we consider your request for an extension of your membership until the completion of this work; we will be in touch in due course. My thanks again for your generous support of the ROH, we are reliant on your donation now more than ever." So, they are considering all the options.
  6. Hope this doesn't sound mercenary but does anyone know whether they are extending the membership period since there have been no performances since March, which means that my renewal date of 31st May has been only 10 months of performances. Not their fault I know but I have not seen any word on it.
  7. Thanks Anna, I will have to get someone to show me how to do links.
  8. Looks to me that the discounted seats are at the very rear of the stalls/circle. The £85 seats are still £85 for example. The matinee performances are virtually empty.
  9. It was directly below a posting that mentioned lastminute. com having some deal or other so I assumed it referred to that.
  10. Can't see anything on their regarding Alina - am I looking in the wrong place.
  11. Loads of tickets left for all the performances, great shame, I love Alina but the programme is not for me.
  12. Unfortunately it appears it is not available in the U.K. and it does not tell us where it is available.
