  1. I agree with every word here. In fact, my partner said 'Her very presence jars'. I loved the way that non-dancing members of the RB were included in this historic occasion, just not the person chosen to do the presenting. I just cannot understand the choice of her, nor her choice of outfit, and hope there isn't some long contract with her that means we will have to endure her again. That was the only blot on a marvellous evening.
  2. I looked for a topic to cover this, but couldn't find one? Please merge if I am mistaken. We just sat transfixed for three hours watching all our old friends back on stage - what an emotional performance. Just wonderful. I can imagine how difficult it would have been to ensure space for all the 'stars' and a good mixed programme for the (perhaps not all ballet savvy) audience. But they succeeded. I loved them all - was especially pleased to see Laura Morera in excellent form, and Edward Watson. Marianela was in peak form, as if she'd never been away from the stage. Vadim was so elegant
  3. Although it isn't ballet, some might enjoy watching the original play. I received this from the Globe: Watch Romeo and Juliet for free on our YouTube channel from 7.00pm tomorrow. Don't miss the second of six productions that we are streaming for free on our YouTube channel, one at a time, on rotation every two weeks. On Monday 20 April from 7.00pm, you'll be able to watch our 2009 production of Romeo and Juliet directed by Dominic Dromgoole with Ellie Kendrick as Juliet, and Adetomiwa Edun as Romeo. Subscribe to our YouTube channel now to set yourse
  4. Well... the choreography and the performances at 'Dances at a Gathering' are sublime. But it's true the (original) music far outweighs even that. However, the performance of that transcendental music doesn't always suffice.
  5. Have you seen this? I couldn't find it elsewhere. Worrying. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8216887/Bolshoi-Theatre-hit-34-coronavirus-cases-TV-performance-auditorium-Russia.html?ito=push-notification&ci=13033&si=949359
  6. @stucha I agree that Louvet was beautiful, and that there are elements that are dated. What I felt was almost a gay love frisson between Siegfried and the tutor - there were some gorgeous duets for the two of them but far removed from the original.
  7. Doesn't she just! I have just watched this film and was touched by the way she said she had felt 'ugly' and 'inadequate' - the opposite of how she really is! I also thought Bonelli came over very well, as much a gentleman backstage as he is in his princely roles. As for Mukhamedov.... well
  8. Now THIS is what I consider a brilliant idea - https://northernballet.com/pay-as-you-feel-season I already donated to NB because the wording of their cancellation email didn't annoy me (unlike the ROH email). But I will happily do so again, and again, in order to watch these offerings!
  9. I found this rather charming and hope you do too: https://www.operadeparis.fr/en/3e-scene/storage If nothing else, it shows some of the opulent interior.
  10. I adored Napoli - thank you @toursenlair! Well worth catching, starved forumites.
