  1. Great news, I'm particularly delighted for Isabella Gasparini and Ashley Dean. I'm also pleased to see that there are no surprise leavers!!
  2. Can non-friends book these packages to save money on multiple performances too?
  3. You don’t have to buy them and so long as the main roles are taken by different people I think it’s great for us to have the choice.
  4. And I'm sure Jan didn't mean to sound so rude but it came across that way to me and others. I think the feelings of a person writing a very useful review in a second or third language should take priority over a possible moment or two of confusion for a reader of a thread about a ballet company they don't follow. Before Jan had posted someone had already referred to Vadim and Marianela which is more than enough to satisfy her reasoning. 'Nela' is a well known enough nickname in the ballet world for it to have been used as the title of a film about her, while Vadim Muntagirov's partners have given him a nickname that countless ballet fans can relate to and from time to time post it to refer to him without the equivalent of 'who's she? the cat's mother?' type responses.
  5. How about a pinned Glossary thread so that you can list, among other things, both of the very well known nicknames used and known by the majority of the forum......you previously acted as though someone who is very close personal friends with the dancers was using very obscure 'inner circle' nicknames like Poopy and Whizzer
  6. Yes...quite distracting at work looking at all the pics and stories, loved Yasmine Naghdi's knitted Kitri doll gift....and such an enthusiastic crowd a the stage door. I'm surprised they don't go there more often.
  7. ‘Nela’ and ‘ Vadream’ are not exactly cryptic...especially if it’s stated one is playing Kitri.
  8. Did they have their full set with moving buildings and windmills?
  9. Yet some people have different photos, Leticia Dias, for example
  10. Oh ok...Christopher Saunders didn't wear the belly either. Looking at a different pic I see Marriott did have a hunch back too
  11. According to the exif data my first photo of Symphony in C for last night, Wednesday night and last Wednesday night was 10.40 and the last at 10.43....my camera's clock matches my iphone
  12. There’s usually an ad in the programme for Leica opera glasses...I guessed they would be priced at a ridiculous level like £350...turned out it was more than double that!! I presume they give a better view than the £5 ones I got from the book club at work though!! 🧐😂
  13. Maybe she was ‘extremely secure’ as Vera and ‘very secure’ can be considered ‘less secure’ 🤔😆
  14. I’m sure there is film footage of it even if not to the degree last night’s Romeo and Juliet was covered, we just need someone prepared to be inspired by the linked story below but replace ‘18 Mini Discs of Radiohead music’ with ‘The Margot Fonteyn Celebration video’ and ‘$150,000’ with ‘a Donald Gordon Tier seat for a performance of my choice, a programme, a sandwich selection and ice cream voucher’ 🤗 https://www.theguardian.com/music/2019/jun/11/radiohead-release-hours-of-hacked-songs-to-benefit-extinction-rebellion
