  1. Friends of Covent Garden have just been sent an email offering them the McRae Mayerling DVD at a discount. Surely that means it will definitely be issued?
  2. Thanks, Buddy. We were posting at the same time and I referred to your review. Maybe a moderator could remove my post as it's now redundant.
  3. There is, currently, a brief review on Ballet Alert: https://balletalert.invisionzone.com/topic/28334-wayne-mcgregor/page/2/?tab=comments#comment-417165
  4. Just checked the 2014 run . McRae's Manon that year was Roberta Marquez.
  5. The following message is currently on the ROH website: WEBSITE ALERT: PURCHASES ARE CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE, INCLUDING OVER THE PHONE AND IN PERSON, WHILE WE RESOLVE A TECHNICAL ISSUE. OUR APOLOGIES FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.
  6. Fuller casting is now on the Bolshoi website for Swan Lake and Don Q https://www.bolshoi.ru/about/press/articles/tours/London-tour-2019/ (click on 'in English' in the top right hand corner and you will get the translation) Edited to add that the browser I usually use on my computer is set to automatically translate from Russian to English. I just tried the link above on another browser and it doesn't work. The casting I've pasted below does, however, definitely come from that page. Some of the translations from Russian are a bit strange so I've attempted to make sense of them below. I hope I've got them right. Perhaps a Russian speaker could check? I'm delighted to see that Anna Tikhomirova appears to be coming. Sadly she's only listed once, as the Street Dancer in Don Q (August 15) "Swan Lake" August 2, 19:30 Odette-Odile - Olga Smirnova Prince Siegfried - Semen Chudin Evil Genius - Michael Lobukhin Prince’s Friends - Elizabeth Kruteleva Antonina Chapkina Jester - George Gusev, August 3 at 14:00 Odetta- Odile - Alena Kovaleva Prince Siegfried - Jacopo Tissi Evil genius - Yegor Gerashchenko Prince's Friends- Daria Bochkova, Anastasia Denisova Jester - Alexei Putintsev August 3, 7:30 pm Odette-Odile - Svetlana Zakharova Prince Siegfried - Artemy Belyakov Evil Genius MikhailKryuchkov Prince’s Friends - Daria Khokhlova, Ana Turazashvili Jester - George Gusev, August 5 at 19:30 Odette-Odile - Yulia Stepanova Prince Siegfried - Artyom Ovcharenko Evil Genius - Michael Lobukhin Prince’s Friends - Daria Bochkova Anastasia Denisova Jester - George Gusev, August 6, 19 30 Odette-Odile - Anna Nikulina Prince Siegfried - Semen Chudin Evil genius - David Mott Soares Prince’s Friends - Elizabeth Kruteleva Antonina Chapkina Jester - Alex Putintsev August 12 at 19:30 Odette-Odile - Yulia Stepanova Prince Siegfried - Artyom Ovcharenko Evil genius - David Mott Soares Prince’s Friends - Daria Bochkova Anastasia Denisova Jester - George Gusev, August 13 at 19:30 Odette-Odile - Ekaterina Krysanova Prince Siegfried - Artem Belyakov Evil Genius - Mikhail Kryuchkov Prince’s Friends - Daria Khokhlova, Ana Turazashvili Jester - George Gusev August 14, 19 : 30 Odette-Odile - Alena Kovaleva Prince Siegfried - Jacopo Tissi Evil genius - Yegor Gerashchenko Prince's Friends - Daria Bochkova, Anastasia Denisova Jester- Alexei Putintsev Don Quixote August 15, beginning at 19:30 Kitri - Margarita Shrayner Basil - Igor Tsvirko Street dancer - Anna Tikhomirova Toreador - Ruslan Skvortsov Queen of Dryads - Antonina Chapkina August 16, beginning at 19:30 Kitri - Ekaterina Krysanova Basil - David Motta Soares Street dancer - Maria Vinogradova Toreador - Vitaly Biktimirov Queen of Dryads - Olga Marchenkova August 17, beginning at 14:00 Kitri - Eleonora Sevenard Basil - Artemy Belyakov Street dancer - Ana Turazashvili Toreador - Ivan Alekseev Queen of Dryads - Alexandra Trikoz August 17, beginning at 19:30 Kitri - Yuliya Stepanova Basil - Denis Rodkin Street dancer - Angelina Vlashenets Toreador - Ruslan Skvortsov Queen of Dryads - Alena Kovaleva edit: the last three dates mysteriously disappeared when I tried to edit a typo. They're back now!
  7. https://www.brb.org.uk/whats-on/event/hobsons-choice#dates-and-times Edit: click on Sadler’s Wells to get links to cast lists.
  8. There’s a store within walking distance of the ROH where they would be able to advise you. https://www.microglobe.co.uk/ If viewing from the amphitheatre, you'd want as wide an angle of view as possible. I’ve just done a search on their website and have come up with this possibility which has an extremely wide angle of view (9.3°) https://www.microglobe.co.uk/olympus-7x35-trooper-dps-i-wide-angle-porro-prism-binocular-p-2606.html? Maybe you could go there and try them out?
  9. Sae Maeda was Juliet's lead friend several times early in the run but I have only seen her once in the more recent performances.
  10. It's still in the listings for June 18: https://www.radiotimes.com/tv-programme/e/h2jgzj/force-of-nature-natalia/
  11. Earlier in the week, this policy was not only applied to those who'd bought their sandwiches elsewhere. People were turned away from the new Piazza Terrace Bar if they'd bought their glasses of wine or hot drinks from the main Amphitheatre Bar. When I queried this, I was told that this was the stated policy of the new Bar. Anyone who wanted to sit there had to buy food and drinks from the Piazza Terrace Bar itself and not from other bars in the ROH.
  12. Has Marianela Nuñez danced the role before? I'd been under the impression that last night was her debut as Natalia Petrovna.
  13. The TBC is for the other works. Monotones II only has three dancers so they’re all named. Edit: just checked the prices and they’re £5 - £25
