  1. 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 yourself a reminder. Can't join us on Monday evening? The film will be available to watch as many times as you like until Sunday 3 May. Find out more
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. @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.
  5. 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
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. I adored Napoli - thank you @toursenlair! Well worth catching, starved forumites.
  9. I just got an email from Medici TV which states: 'Next week, we had planned to stream Massenet’s Manon from the Opéra de Paris as part of our paid subscription offer. In light of the situation, we have decided that this broadcast–which was able to be filmed without an audience–will now be available to everyone for free and will remain available free of charge on replay.' I assume that means free to non Medici subscribers too - might be worth a watch.
  10. I just received my cancellation email from ROH for Friday's Swan Lake. There was a form to fill in, asking for choice of refund/donation/transfer to future event. The fact that 'donation' was already ticked, meaning they were forcing that as an automatic preference if one didn't actively decide on an alternative, really put me off that option. Had there been a fourth choice, say, of half the cost going to ROH I might have considered it. But when I give £145 to charity I'd rather give it to people in need of life's essentials. Difficult times!
