  1. I imagine it's an orchestration of Johan Strauss's music for the operetta. There is certainly a recognisable tune from that towards the end of the pas de deux.
  2. Not ballet but opera. Welsh National Opera has had to cancel it's spring season. "Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the associated restrictions, we have regretfully taken the decision to cancel our Spring 2021 Season. Please visit our website for the latest information. All of us at WNO are looking forward to a time when we can see you all again at a theatre or concert hall and in the meantime we hope that you all stay safe and well. "
  3. Be careful when you buy this as there are two options. "Birmingham Royal Ballet’s The Nutcracker at The REP will be available to watch as a livestream event at 7.30pm on Friday 18th December. It will then be available to view as a video-on-demand recording from Saturday 19th to Thursday 24th December. Video-on-demand sales close at midnight on 21st December, but can be viewed until midnight on Christmas Eve." It is not made clear in this statement that if you pay for the livestream you will only be able to watch that. If you want the video-on-demand it is a separate pa
  4. Although I had no intention of going to the 4th Nov performance out of curiosity I clicked the link to buy tickets and got the following message Sorry tickets are currently unavailable. Returns may be available later. which possibly looks as though there has ben a last minute rush for the only available performance.
  5. It's being streamed using TicketCo TV which I haven't come across before but it can be streamed on a TV.
  6. News of NYCB's digital season. https://www.nycballet.com/season-and-tickets/fall-digital-season/ Details also on the Seeing Dance website.
  7. I suspect one reason this isn't being filmed is that MGH is organising this and not the ROH or RB. I imagine she doesn't' have the time or knowledge to arrange filming.
  8. There is a video on the ROH Facebook page of Anna Rose O'Sullivan rehearsing The Dying Swan for these performances.
  9. The Birminham Rep dates back to 1971 although it has been renovated since. It is all on one level with no aisles, like the Barbican. They are asking people to arrive at a certain time to be seated, presumably those with seats in the middle will be seated first so that other people don't have to push past them. The foyer spaces are reasonable, helped by the linking space to the library and where the box office is situated. There is a large open plaza outside although in October I can't imagine many people will want to hang around there for too long. There are entry doors on both sides of the th
  10. The 1920/21 season of the Pacific Northwest Ballet will be an entirely digital one, on subscription. It appears individual performances will be available to buy as well. https://www.pnb.org/season/#new Not what people would really like but at least they've taken a decision in time to carry out what they feel they can do reasonably for now and the immediate future.
  11. The Bolshoi have announced three cinema broadcasts for next season, all obviously recordings. 4 October + Romeo and Juliet 1 November + La Dame aux Camelias 20 December - The Nutcracker They are obviously hoping to be able to broadcast some live in 2021 as they haven't announced any thing further. Let's hope they can.
  12. I really don't think this is going to be much help at all, especially as there seems to be no sign of any financial help. https://www.standard.co.uk/go/london/theatre/oliver-dowden-culture-roadmap-plan-a4480341.html
  13. The reason for only showing Act 3 of Coppeila is given as the following on the Lincoln Centre website A note on this performance of CoppéliaThe decision was made by New York City Ballet and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts to stream the third act of Coppélia instead of the full-length production. The production from that time included, in the second act, the character of a Chinese doll wearing a mask and making movements that were ethnically and racially insensitive. In recent years, New York City Ballet has changed the costume, make-up design, and movements for this characte
