  1. I was wondering if anyone has heard anything more about Artists preparing to return to the RB for training from Tuesday (July 14th )?
  2. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-53356040/culture-secretary-support-the-places-we-all-love More details about opening up venues....
  3. Actually I think the ballet only adds up to about 20 minutes.
  4. In Friday's No. 10 Press Conference David from Milton Keynes asked if the Govt. would offer further assistance to the events and arts industry to ensure it survives the next few months. The PM promised a timetable will be set out next week to get these industries preparing to get underway with Covid secure measures, and promised David that the Govt. would be doing everything they reasonably can to support the arts theatre and events world in the interim.
  5. Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere, but La Scala are starting concerts again this month with 600 people in the audience. Some details here: https://www.seattletimes.com/entertainment/la-scala-plans-4-july-concerts-in-post-lockdown-reopening/
  6. Received from ROH yesterday: Friends' Newsletter: An Update on Performances Kevin O’Hare shared some exciting news during this weekend's Live from Covent Garden. Dancers of The Royal Ballet will be invited to return to the building on a voluntary basis from 14 July to train and rehearse in a socially distanced capacity. However, due to the ongoing closure of theatres across the UK, we are not able to perform our originally planned programme. We will make announcements in due course about our exciting artistic plans for the Autumn in the context of Government advice on social distancing for performers and audiences. All artists have been contacted.
  7. What I find confusing about the Vimeo arrangement is that my purchased "Live From Covent Garden" content is not searchable from "vimeo.com" itself. It is found via "vimeo/com/ott", and I couldn't find any direct link from "vimeo.com" to "vimeo/com/ott". If I login at vimeo/com/ott with the password I set up in the Basic Vimeo account this leads to the live ROH events I purchased, but the links from there still require me to login to the separate ROH Stream account. But I can just login directly to the ROH Stream account without being logged in to Vimeo. So did I need to register separately with Vimeo at all (as opposed to ROH Stream), as was implied at the outset, or am I missing something?
  8. Quite pleased that at today's press conference, visiting a theatre (The Globe, as it happens) was the first activity the PM mentioned of various things he wants to do as future lockdown eases. He stressed that there were ongoing task forces looking at remaining areas such performing arts, about practical measures to get things going again.
  9. But at (or even less than) the sort of cost for a single seat at the ROH (and who knows when might we be able to enjoy that again?), worth every penny in my book. So joyful...it's a real gem! 💃
  10. I was wondering about your own ordering experience, Dan...I am very pleased it has now arrived for you. It is a wonderful recording of a superb performance, and I am sure you will enjoy many repeat playings!☺
  11. It is working again now.....EDIT as you have just posted!
