  1. Me too. She has an energy all her own. I surely hope it doesn't depend on vacancies, as the RB has so so many amazing women. Also, like many, rooting for Sambé and O’Sullivan. Debuts in R&J seem to be a rite of passage for careers on the way up I guess Manon isn't a classic in the ballet sense. What about Juliet?
  2. For me, especially for this ballet, I choose the debuts. It is magical to watch a dancer bring to life a role they have dreamt about their whole career and worked so hard to achieve. Beatriz Stix-Brunell was beautiful tonight. I left totally inspired by her (though I had some tears from Juliet’s emotion). And, as a serendipitous bonus, I was sitting next to her brother. Beaming with pride as you’d imagine
  3. Agree. Her expressive joy in the balcony pas de deux seemed to radiate both for the love of her Romeo and for her own milestone of this debut.
  4. hashtag jealous 😄 Agree agree agree. Thanks @Sim for the excellent detailed review
  5. I booked specifically to see him, as I think he is perfect for this part. And I really enjoyed his performance. They looked amazing together. Hearts breaking all over the audience for the pas de deux. Don’t think he is back to full strength though. Almost unfair to have two other Romeos on the same stage (Ball and Sambé) and one could be Romeo imo (James Hay). Wish I could see the whole thing over again right now, as I am that spoiled from this cast
  6. At the risk of fan girl gushing, it feels amazing to be here at today’s matinee. Dream cast 💛
  7. Privilege to see this tonight. Julia Conway a deserving winner. She beamed confidence right from the start of her classical pas de deux — from Flames of Paris with Rentaro Nakaaki (also fantastic).
  8. Sadly, can no longer attend this rehearsal next week. Ballet Studio Live Friday 10 May 2019, 1.35pm | Paul Hamlyn Hall • LEVEL PH Balcony Level, D-4 | loose seat / restricted view | Full Price: £8.00 I have an e-ticket
  9. Romeo & Juliet is my absolute favourite ballet. And I love how it is a showcase for rising star soloists to own the stage. So I won’t gush too much but I echo annamk that the matinee today was magnificent. Luca Acri stole my heart and Sullivan & Sambé broke it 👏💐👏
  10. Hoping Bracewell not long term injured. But I booked that first date specifically to see Beatriz Stix Brunell get her chance to shine. And since Ryoichi Hirano absolutely blew me away in his star turn as Espada, I am happy to see anything he does. Excited to see this show. Think they will both bring a modern charisma to the classic R&J couple.
  11. Tried to buy this today and it is already sold out (sad face). Just putting this wish out there on the chance someone with higher status has a ticket they are no longer able to use. Insights: In Conversation with Matthew Ball 30 May 2019 Clore Studio (Wish they would put the popular Insights in the Linbury Theatre)
  12. Oh my. Magri injured also. Announcement made live just before curtain. Hope she is ok. Replaced by Itziar Mendizabal. It is Yasmine Naghdi’s night anyway. Sparkling!
  13. Agree. Am going tonight and having already seen Magri as Mercedes, would have been fantastic to see Beatriz Stix-Brunell. Such a great saucy role for her. I do hope she is not seriously injured? On her Instagram she's posting her usual fun loving, hard working clips from class or the gym.
  14. Sadly, I can no longer make this. Happy to give the ticket free to a good home. You'd have to pick up the physical ticket from my office (Clerkenwell Green) or I can send you a photo of it, which I am pretty sure the ROH will take at the door since it has a QR code.
