  1. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-kent-52927374/teen-stuck-at-home-instead-of-starting-at-royal-ballet
  2. Just read this, the Korean plan looks interesting. https://www.classicfm.com/artists/royal-opera-house/collapse-in-autumn-needs-theatre-recovery-plan/
  3. Having not watched anything yesterday the morning started for me with SJD (Shobana Jeyasingh Dance). This week some extracts form her work Strange Blooms is being streamed. It starts and ends with discussion. I found this a riveting piece. The Dance is from 3.19 to 19.20.
  4. Like wise this is a beautiful and heartbreaking poem by Joseph Sissions. If you saw 'Men at the Barre' on BBC4 recently you would have seen him talk about his early experience of racism.
  5. This was on the Lincoln Centre page this morning, and they have my support in this.
  6. I remember that evening, what a fantastic, beautiful and moving performance it was. Unlike you I had already seen the cinema screening and I remember at the time thinking that what I appreciated from front row amphitheatre was being able to see the whole pattern of chorus and main story tellers, they worked together so well. I had also wondered having seen it up close in the cinema if the emotion would register all the way back and up in the amphitheatre and I felt it did. Who knows when theatres will open again and like you ChrisG I long to be back . I felt in this last season that I was seeing a golden time for the royal ballet and how wonderful that was.
  7. Sander does interviews every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7pm. I have just found out how to access the previous 4, I took a picture to show people but it won't let me upload it so I will try to describe it. In Instagram search for Sander's page. About third down are 3 symbols, the middle one is the IGTV one if you click on that you get all his uploads for the last 10 days or so. The IGTV symbol is a square with and arial on the top and a lightening in the middle.
  8. just posted from Sander's IG account Here are my guests for next weeks “in conversation” on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7pm UK time on my Instagram Live! - Monday: Tara Brigitte Bhavnani - First Artist with the Royal Ballet Company! - Wednesday: Sander Blommaert - Former First Artist with the Royal Ballet Company and current Upper School Ballet Teacher at Elmhurst Ballet School and Founder of Blommaert Ballet&Toning - Friday: Meaghan Grace Hinkis - Soloist of the Royal Ballet Company! * Yes!

  9. Thank you for this, I had missed the Crystal Pite which is now set to record. Also don't forget Dracula (posted above) on 31st May.
  10. Thank you, this is wonderful. Shobana is such an interesting person and I love how she advises dancers to take an interest in life, politics, etc.

  12. Hopefully it will be on iplayer so there will could be a bit of time to see it. And thank you.
  13. I too thought Nora was wonderful. I saw it live when ENB did She Persisted and I got the programme out it re re read. I think it made much more sense to me second time around. I loved the music and the 'chorus' dancing Nora's feelings. I wish ENB steamed for a bit longer, still good to have anything at all to see.
