  1. Are Corrales and Hayward the only two dancers affected? I checked my email box and cannot find other information. I am going to bring someone to RoH for tomorrow Swan Lake opening night and she was looking forward to see Vadim&Nela pair. I noticed that Vadim just returned from Japan a week ago, wonder if he is affected? If so probably I shall let her know in advance to avoid big disappointment. Thanks!
  2. Just returned from ROH today after the opera. I sit at the ground and have a very good seat. A treat! However the French speaking couple sitting behind me kept coughing and took cough sweets several time. And the German speaking gentleman made a lot of effort to stop his running nose... I dont think they have Coronavirus or I am in any danger. Further more, having an Asian looking face, I am very grateful that there has been absolutely no discrimination to me since the virus outbreak. However I start to doubt how long the situation will maintain as usual...
  3. Sorry if I did cause any confusion... What I mean that Many patients start with loss of appetite, or some disagreeable felling in the stomach. And some known effective medicine (eg, like Lopinavir/ritonavir ,commonly known as Kaletra) has common side effects include diarrhea, vomiting, etc. Thus for some doctors hesitated to give these to the patients who show mild symptoms because the patients may be feeling worse after taking the medicine, especially who already have disagreeable feeling in the stomach. Later they found that the side ef
  4. Another thought from me is I really don't like the way media emphasises so much on age and pre-existing medical conditions. People from all age group have died. The first impression of "pre-existing medical conditions" is something like cancer. But actually it includes diabetes and cardiovascular and so many other quite common conditions. Status here https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/coronavirus-age-sex-demographics/ Younger/healthier people usually have a longer incubation period and their condition develop slower. But the condition can
  5. It is not the normal kind flu, telling from the death rate. So far this flu season, 0.05% of people who caught the flu have died from the virus in the U.S. according to CDC. https://www.livescience.com/new-coronavirus-compare-with-flu.html According to a study (Feb 18) based on the current cases, the death rate for Coronavirus is much higher. The report by the CCDC shows Hubei province's death rate is 2.9% compared with 0.4% in the rest of the country.

  6. Bravo to all dancers. Obviously they put a lot effort and work very hard. Special admiration to the leading 3. However my feeling is too... busy... Designer just cannot resist to win the most Ikea staging prize. And find a job for everyone and keep them busy just like a work union...
  7. I feel very sad to not able to see Osipova. I originally booked all Osipova&Vadim 3 casts because I feared maybe I would miss one. I was so looking forward to see Vadim as Onegin and I heard Osipova wonderful as Tatiana. Then it came the news of replacement of Clarke. Then I had to return my very good seat for the 1st show of Osipova&Clarke for a last minute booked travel...I really regret it now:( Should stay in London and fly on Sunday . I love Bolle I love Nunez... I am happy to see them tonight but I am feeling incredibly sad for not be able to see Osip
  8. I don't have the privilege to see the past generation of dancers. But I read some articles about classic variation and lilac fairy variation and blue bird variation are regarding of one of the most difficult variations for female and males.(some even votes them as the hardest). One of the shade variation in LB and the golden Buda variation in LB are also on top of that list. But being a shade you only need good techinic not much acting. Thus lilac fairy "wins" the difficult prize... I don't quite understand why the decision goes this way.
  9. I attended last night performance and it must be one of the best moment I have enjoyed in RB this year. Coppelia is one of my favourites but RB production is not my like. I understand the company probably is willing to "keep" some old traditions but this is not for me. - The lacking of space on the stage. Result in limitation of corp dancing space. Several occasions you can see corps trying to squeeze though others during the dance. Also it limits the number of corps to dance the Mazurka. I really afraid Vadim will run out of stage when he danced the solo. Yep many othe
  10. Must related to their busy international commitments. And they will dance Raymonda next week.
  11. All those yellow country girls and their companions. To be honest I don't like that yellow blouse
  12. Is it going to broadcast again? I thought next one in cinema is Lauren's nutcracker
  13. Came back Home after today evening performance by Hayward and Campbell. It is the first time I see RB Coppelia in person. I have seen the production on DVD and other companies recording. The acting skill of RB is fantastic. Especially a vote for Gary's old doctor! But I feel that the mime in Act II is too long. Maybe it is a way to give Swanilda more time to recharge? It seems not that long on DVD but feel a bit "over" in person. Hayward's dancing is very good. Like her Scots dance a lot. (it is Scotland right?) I have not seen her full length ballet a lot due to a lot
