  1. Not possible on the Sadler’s Wells website. The following message is on the site for the BRB performances next month. This performance adheres to Social Distancing guidelines and seats are allocated in singles and pairs, please note that, a single seat cannot be selected for purchase where it would leave a single seat for sale.
  2. The Radio Times listings are on line. Here's the link to the September 17 listings. https://www.radiotimes.com/tv/tv-listings/?sd=17-09-2020 05:00 Scroll down to Sky Arts, Freeview Channel 11. Use the arrows at the top to change the date or the time of day. Edited to change the link to one which only has the dedicated Freeview listings.
  3. When I made my first donation, it was via the ROH website itself (presumably through the Box Office) and I got several messages of thanks. By the time I made a second donation, they had started to use another company to handle the donations. Despite the fact that I was asked to provide my Friends of CG membership number, no acknowledgement was sent and I found this disappointing.
  4. Just googled YouTube BRB Cinderella and came up with the YouTube link. Edit: After posting the link, I deleted it in case it might constitute a breach of copyright to post it here. It is, nonetheless, easy to find through Google.
  5. Very strange. An end of season announcement from Kevin O'Hare with no mention of joiners, new apprentices or promotions. Only leavers are mentioned. https://www.roh.org.uk/news/royal-ballet-end-of-season-announcement The majority of the announcement is devoted to Ed Watson who is joining the coaching staff. Erico Montes and Tristan Dyer are the only leavers mentioned. I've pasted the announcement below. " "Director of The Royal Ballet Kevin O’Hare has announced Company news for the end of The Royal Ballet 2019/20 Season.
  6. BRB have posted the following on Twitter: "We want to assure our audiences that we are working hard to secure an alternative venue for The Nutcracker in Birmingham this Christmas."
  7. There's a link to the castlist on the YouTube page. Here it is (scroll down for the full cast): https://www.roh.org.uk/showings/the-sleeping-beauty-live-2020
  8. Friends of ENB have been sent an update with a link to a video in which Tamara Rojo says that Raymonda will now be delayed until the 21/22 season.
  9. Congratulations, TTP. I’ve been following Brandon’s career since his White Lodge days and it’s been really rewarding to watch the way he has blossomed during those years. Your questioning was very skilful and brought out, in a most interesting way, his thoughts and impressions of his experiences on the stage before, during and after performances. I look forward to the next instalment of your podcast
  10. Until June 25, the Sydney Opera House are streaming Wayne McGregor's Dyad 1929 (The Australian Ballet)
  11. I fit into the same category, Anne, yet far from being shut out, I was asked to give detailed reasons to explain why I'd given the answers I'd given. The survey was taking so long that, the 3rd or 4th time I was asked for these details, I had to write that the survey was taking too long and that I didn't have time to reply in the detail they were asking for. Edited to add that, if they'd stated in advance that the survey might take much longer than the 10 minutes stated in the email, I'd have made sure to start it when I knew I'd have more time available.

  13. It's been postponed. I've pasted in below a quote from the Lincoln Center website: "NYCB's Coppélia and Tribute to Balanchine, scheduled for release on June 2 and June 3 will be rescheduled. SAB's Virtual Workshop Performance Celebration and the Juilliard K-12 Dance Workshop with Laura Careless, scheduled to stream from June 1 and June 3, have also been postponed. Please check back for updates." http://lincolncenter.org/lincoln-center-at-home/series/dance-week Edited to add that the announcement above doesn't take account of the fact that, before being postponed again, C
  14. It seems that the Tribute to Balanchine has been postponed. I've pasted in below Lincoln Center's response to a question about it on Twitter: "I am not able to locate “Tribute to Balanchine” anywhere on the website or YouTube. I had understood it to be scheduled for release tonight at 8 pm. Has there been a change of schedule? Thanks. Lincoln Center@LincolnCenter
