  8. If anyone has a spare ticket for this with a good view, I’ll be happy to take it off your hands.
  9. I’m not sure what the ushers can do about the smart watches as they tend to light up inadvertently; I just wish the wearers would be more aware of it and perhaps wear long sleeves!
  10. I agree that ringing them at 5 minutes would be preferable, however I would rather they had a the ringing via speakers/sounders like they do in some other theatres. I find the hand bells far too harsh. And yes, I ignore the bells being rung at 10 minutes along with nearly everyone else! I think especially with a ballet the length of Sleeping Beauty they should give us a chance to stretch our legs/sit down/take a sip before starting to herd us back in!
  11. The person doing the calls yesterday spoke in a low, drawn out manner and it was quite hard to hear them clearly above the hubbub; their voice was rather quiet. Having both clear diction and an urgency to the tone would help to get people moving. I do wish they’d dispense with the awful clanging bells, though. When you’ve just sat down to enjoy your drink (they start ringing 10 mins into 20 min interval) and then it ”chimes” at ear level at goodness knows how many decibels as they walk past, it’s frankly painful. I was one of those who had their view disturbed by the couple taking their seats and it was highly irritating. They were back in good time for the second interval - pretty sure they had been given an earful by some of their Row A neighbours. I noticed lots of people being told to shut their phones off by ushers yesterday. Many more than usual. Also people’s Apple watches lighting up all over the place - one man was clearly checking his notifications (yes, I saw you!) but others just light up whenever people move their arms because they have them set on ‘raise to wake’.
