  1. I keep cancelling tickets and getting Gift Certificates, I find it's more of a "can't be bothered" with all the hassle attitude rather than Covid itself, especially the transport problems, there seem to be so few late night trains running! At the end of the performance is leaving the theatre controlled, or can you use whichever exit you like?
  2. I noticed how unattractive the men's dresses were from the photos, haven't seen the ballet yet, I have liked swirling dresses/gowns the men have worn in other ballets but not these.
  3. I thought I read that the old system was back, i.e. they try to resell the ticket on the day and refund me if they succeed, but yesterday morning when I E-mailed they advised that the 24 hour period had passed and it wasn't possible. I suppose the rules keep changing at the ROH as everywhere else.
  4. This looks fabulous, all the dancers I know I very much like and look forward to seeing, shame about the Russian Companies, but I must admist that of all the Covid vaccines, the Sputnik is one of the less attractive!
  5. I was going to ask if you can simply enjoy the ballet for the dancing etc. without knowing anything about Dante's Inferno, glad that the answer is yes!
  6. I didn't think R and J third act was too dark in the past, everyone seems to be following this irritating trend! If anyone is interested, I've just sold Wednesday's performance and the ROH should be putting it up online shortly, amphi K66, a good one!
  7. Well I have booked to see her Giselle to renew the magic, and I will book for her Swan Lake, I hope she repeats that manege of turns she did to replace the 32 fouettes last time, it was unbelievable!
  8. The only good thing is that you can find online the complete casts for performances you didn't attend or might want to see online, even rehearsals, for a time anyway. Lots of strange things happening under "Covid", I find it ironic that you have to take ices into the auditorium to eat when it was strictly prohibited before πŸ™‚
  9. The creepiest ballet I can think of is Liam Scarlett's Hansel and Gretel, that was really unsettling.
  10. The complete programme is on Youtube now, hope it does remain for a month.
  11. Thanks, I have actually bought a printer and have wasted loads of paper trying to learn how to work it 😏, but I have to leave home too early, I will be able to print the next day though. One thing so far I have noticed is that the ROH tickets come out on A4 paper better and easier than anything else!
  12. Will there be a screen somewhere at the ROH that people without mobile phones will be able to see the casting, although we will need good memories.
  13. The NHS are also using Moderna as the booster, don't think you get a choice though. I should get mine around early November.
  14. I'm in two minds about going, the fact the it's so easy now to get Gift Certificates from the ROH and SW makes it easier to cancel too. Did anyone see Isaac Hernandez on Saturday afternoon, a good review might help. I'm wondering how the music for Midnight Bell will sound at SW, at the small Theatre Royal it was perfect, it used a recorded soundtrack as there are short songs which the dancers mime to, although it is an original brilliant score, hope it doesn't suffer through over-amplification too! It says in the programme that SW is the only larger venue the tour is playing at.
  15. I also find that it keeps my nose and mouth protected in cold, windy weather so I can breathe more easily, plus I don't have to wear make-up πŸ™‚
