  1. Going even further back I would love to see the Ballet for All series which was on ITV but only broadcast in the London area so I never saw it.
  2. Love the look of the Afternoon of a Faun programme but unfortunately not even remotely likely to see it
  3. I donated my ticket cost for the first performance I had booked and the email reply was worded as follows: “Thank you for converting your ticket to a donation. We greatly appreciate your generosity at this time. Your support will help us as we manage the impact of COVID-19 on our current projects and plan for the future. We look forward to seeing you at the Royal Opera House again soon.” This makes it clear that you have given a donation.

  5. The cast sheet is there, you have to click on all dates. It lists Artem Ovcharenko as Siegfried but Odette/Odile is blank. I’ve just realised what you mean Stevie, having looked at all four performances and that you weren’t asking about Siegfried. Sorry.

  7. I remember this and still have my programme as well. So many starry names, I particularly remember The Moor’s Pavane and The Taming of the Shrew Pas de Deux and the excitement of seeing so many famous dancers at the same time. I also remember that the defile was a polonaise (I think to the music from the end of Beauty) and most of the dancers, apart from those in the RB, didn’t seem to be able to do the steps properly.
  8. As has second cast Dancer: Sarah Lamb Dancer: Mayara Magri Dancer: Meaghan Grace Hinkis Dancer: Anna Rose O'Sullivan Dancer: Tierney Heap Dancer: Marcelino Sambé Dancer: Nicol Edmonds Dancer: Reece Clarke Dancer: Benjamin Ella Dancer: James Hay
  9. Brandon Lawrence? I know it doesn’t qualify for this year’s awards but his performance as Albrecht in Giselle is one of the best I’ve seen, along with Celine Gittens, but of course he didn’t perform it in London and the critics very rarely bother to travel out of London so it won’t be considered in next years awards either. As already stated these awards would mean far more if they were nominated and voted for by the public.
  10. At the matinee yesterday a woman sitting in the row in front of me in the Amphitheatre was looking at her phone all through Kaneko’s solo in the first act. Luckily it wasn’t too bright, although still distracting, but I did wonder why she had come to the performance.
  11. The dancers down for Dr Coppelius are now Gary Avis, Bennet Gartside, Philip Mosley and Thomas Whitehead apart from the first performance, which is a school’s matinee, when Jonathan Howells is still listed.
  12. The casting for BRB’s Nutcracker at the Birmingham Hippodrome is now out. So far only the casts for the Sugar Plum Fairy, Prince and Clara have been announced. https://www.brb.org.uk/whats-on/event/nutcracker-2019
  13. Five tickets have appeared for the 9pm performance on Thursday 10 October of the Cross Currents triple in the Linbury.
