  1. So wish I could’ve been there to see what founds like a very rich programme. Thanks for posting!
  2. agree all Makarova (except young woman in black deep v neck), and Dowell and Mcleary as above... what a great collection!
  3. Absolutely no damming intended! Just the hasty words of an ROH regular unfamiliar with the BRB dancers or the production...I will look forward to it!
  4. Yes very exciting but would be such a treat to see this cast streamed - why else would it be saying filming on the website I wonder? praying for a late announcement..
  5. If anybody has an unwanted ticket for 1st Jan at 2pm Hayward/Coralles please DM me.
  6. If anyone would like to sell 1 ticket for Hayward (1st Jan 2pm) please DM me - my daughter desperate to see Leo Dixon..such exciting news
  7. Brilliant night - so many great moments and yes so much better without endless compère yakking away. Standout for me was without a doubt Yasmine Nagdhi in Concerto. I barely drew breath - technically perfect, profoundly musical and she seemed to be completely immersed in it - mesmerising. Likewise Takada/Campbell in Rhapsody - wonderful - as great as she was in Swan Lake in the last stream. Campbell on really good form too. Sambe/Sullivan - what huge presence he has and she just gets better and better. Scherzo very impressive - Zucchetti will be one to watch. Great to see. Hayward/Coralles finally doing Swan Lake pdd - he was refreshingly sweet and vulnerable rather than just the textbook ‘prince’ and she was lovely but I felt Takada tapped into the character better. More opportunities to develop this I hope. Golden Hour was wonderful - So beautifully danced and the music so well played and conducted too. I’m not sure i would’ve chosen Monotones although I agree with balletnut55 that they were very strong. It is very long and the retro headgear does it no favours! I guess I think it might repel a lot of newer ballet watchers and that would be a shame so early in the programme. I loved it all but my only real disappointment was not to have seen Magri/Ball in Corsaire. I hope they can keep this up even after we go back to normal - Such a great way of reaching greater audiences.
  8. Oh what a dream that was! Such joy and happiness plastered on all our faces. So many great performances - impossible to list them all - just riveting.
  9. I’m going - with my family- more than 3 hrs drive but managed to merge it with a little trip to Cornwall but still hideously expensive. But then so is going to the ROH... anything to support them and see them in action - crossing fingers for Ed but happy no matter what...
  10. HI did you see my seat in stalls circle C16 £26 for tomorrow night?
  11. I have one Stalls circle ticket for sale 4 March 730pm. C16 - bench seat/restricted view £26.00 its an eticket so easily sent. DM me if interested.
  12. Just incredible tonight. Am huge Yasmine fan already but tonight we saw her mature into the next level. A great ballerina. Can’t express it very well just yet!
  13. Well in fairness there is a picture of Cuthbertson alongside two of Ball but yes - no Nagdhi or Hayward. Which says it all really. How sad for all the non British dancers and probably very uncomfortable for Ball. The whole thing is pretty shocking and cynical if not downright sinister.
  14. Stalls Circle B22,23 £34.00 each sadly due to last minute travel changes I have to sell or return these two tickets Please DM me if interested . E tickets.
  15. I quite agree! I admire Ed Watson perhaps more than any other dancer and that is saying a lot as I admire several very much! And I find it so odd that there has been no reference to him / injured/improved but not yet able to perform/ retiring with one swan song left? Who knows and I for one find it very puzzling and also upsetting - imagine how hard it must be for him.,, one minute down for Mayerling and now 18 months later - almost nothing ..,,
  16. I’m hoping he’ll be appearing in McGregors Dante Priject?? I think he did in LA..
  17. Well I agree it’s a vexed question and you probably can’t win as each one of those issues - debuts/guests/tried and true raises multiple problems but I felt in this instance that Lamb wasn’t really a natural Manon so why give all those reviews to her - which although complimentary in some ways, almost all added the caveat of too cool/reserved/lacking in intensity/low chemistry...I do think Hayward could have carried it, gained great publicity and rave reviews and perhaps Coppelia first cast could have gone to one of the several other potentially very good dancers.
  18. Having just read through all the first night reviews (other than the FT) it struck me that the Lamb/Muntagirov pairing was an odd choice for a first night. Surely the Ball debut or as Alison says, Hayward, deserved some of that attention. I know Muntagirov always dances beautifully and has in fact garnered some very good reviews, but my own feeling is that Lamb isn’t a natural Manon and it was inevitable that the critics would pick up on her coolness and lack of Macmillan intensity... I just think the first night cast should have a bit more of a buzz about it - either Ball, Hayward or the Osi/Halberg casts would have had that. Especially during a period of such weak sales (although That might not have been anticipated when these decisions were taken of course). Just feels a bit careless...
  19. Have just returned 2 very good Stalls circle tix for tonight’s Firebird mixed to the box office as they were paper tickets. Thoroughly sickened to be missing this but want them to go to a good home! Should be up for sale by about noon. (Nagdhi/Watson/Cuthbertson/Muntagirov)
  20. Just fantastic news and so well deserved. He has been outstanding in this last season - coming on literally in leaps and bounds - and I’ve been so impressed by his articulate, charming and committed presence when interviewed at rehearsals etc. Brilliant!
