  1. That would make sense as they test on Tues and Fri, if I recall.
  2. From the Telegraph (paywall; limited access with registration) The Royal Ballet: Beauty Mixed Programme, review: a stormy assortment with a note of perfection (telegraph.co.uk)
  3. "My ultimate aim — if I do my job correctly, is that when you watch a dancer on stage, you don't see the pointe shoe." Making shoes at Freed What It's Like to Be a Pointe-Shoe Maker at Freed of London (businessinsider.com)
  4. You usually have to self-isolate for 10 full days if you've tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) or have been in close contact with someone who has it. You might need to self-isolate for longer if you get symptoms or your symptoms do not go away. How long to self-isolate - Coronavirus (COVID-19) - NHS (www.nhs.uk)
  5. Laurretta Summerscales & István Simon on lockdown and after..... Two ballet dancers on returning to the stage and dancers' mental health (gramilano.com)
  6. Cast change for tonight Anemoi Cast Change Conducted by Koen Kessels Cast Dancer: Mariko Sasaki Dancer: Leticia Dias Dancer: Lukas Bjorneboe Braendsrod Dancer: Daichi Ikarashi replaces Taisuke Nakao
  7. Marianela Núñez, talking about Sleeping Beauty & other things. Begin about 7:48 Front Row - Marianela Núñez, Charlotte Perriand exhibition review, Latitude Festival - BBC Sounds
  8. Insights: The Royal Ballet rehearse Anemoi 5 July –4 August 2021 Online only (doesn't say where online yet) Join The Royal Ballet in rehearsal as they rehearse choreographer and First Soloist Valentino Zucchetti's ballet Anemoi ahead of its world premiere. Insights: The Royal Ballet rehearse Anemoi (roh.org.uk)
  9. Related (kind of) https://www.roh.org.uk/news/royal-opera-house-and-covent-garden-partner-for-festival-of-creativity-roh-unlocked
  10. I asked about the seating arrangements and received this in reply: Seats will be allocated on arrival. The performance area will have rows of chairs.
  11. Not sure where to put this but another outdoor dance festival (via Claire Calvert, Royal Ballet) Additional Information for the Dance in Somerset Event - Yeo Valley Organic Tickets https://yeo-valley-events.ticketlight.co.uk/
  12. Did you dispute the initial £0.72 (x 2) with your credit card provider? If not dispute the full charge now and have them sort it out with Vimeo OTT.
  13. I really like this kind of personalized analysis that shows what contributions can "buy". The ROH doesn't do enough (or any) of it. It would encourage me to increase my membership except..... ........in skimming the annual report that £105 also paid for 20 additional people in the marketing department taking the total to 111 a/o 30 Aug 20. By comparison the ballet company lost 3 people for a total of 143 (Annual Report, pg 82). More than happy to contribute to the ballet but not to a bloated and (completely agreeing with FLOSS here) useless marketing department. Like many, I increased my membership this year to help out the company and now can see it was a waste of money. 'Won't make that mistake again.
  14. Controversially perhaps - yes. Use the ones you have efficiently and have more opportunities for your "try outs". Saves on the wage bill as well.
  15. ...and not as if any of the male Principals are exactly overworked - with the exception of McRae and Ball in in R&J (4) and Muntagirov in Nutcracker (3) each has 2 (at most) performances in each production. What's the point of being a Principal if you can't perform?

  17. Box office opens tomorrow. No program as yet Stars of THE ROYAL BALLET at Athelhampton Sat 11 Sept & Sun 12 Sept Stars of THE ROYAL BALLET at Athelhampton | Athelhampton
  18. Clearly the Director at the Mikhailovsky doesn't think she's either. As for the ROH announcement, I think @capybara 's comment on diplomacy is spot on.
  19. Too late for today's links. Putting it here as B&R is the lead review but also addresses British Ballet Charity Gala and Northern Ballet The week in dance: Balanchine and Robbins; British Ballet Charity Gala; Dangerous Liaisons – review | Royal Ballet | The Guardian
