  2. The price includes good quality wines and a high standard of catering with a sit down 3 course meal. I have no idea which wines are being served ! Would that be a deal maker ? If so I can enquire!? Or you can contact Covent Garden Dance Company through their website. As far as I know this is not a charity fund raiser. The price of the ticket is to cover the cost of the meal/ drinks /venue hire/ payment of staff/ payment of dancers/ tax and insurance etc. I personally think it is good value for money if you wish to treat yourself. I realise not everyone can afford it, but we all choose and budget according to our individual means I guess. The dancers listed are all amazing with many principal dancers. I’m going on the Sunday evening 😀
  3. For Sale 1 ticket £68 Orchestra Stalls E30 Weds 12th June 7.30. Naghdi/ Watson Firebird, Cuthbertson/Muntagirov Month . I will be there to hand over ticket, reason for selling is that I had a spare place.
  4. Each to their own Richard LH. I've enjoyed almost all of Matthew Bourne's productions and judging by the success of most of them I can only assume many thousands of others have enjoyed them too. I accept they do not appeal to everyone but there has been a lot of variety and I do not agree that they are depressing or tired, in my opinion. Best wishes from a Bourne fan
  5. I’d just like to congratulate Nicol Edmonds in a principal role partnering Sarah Lamb in Symphony in C . It’s a tricky role as all eyes are on the Ballerina but there is split second timing involved, so well done Nicol !
  6. Congratulations Marcelino ! Well deserved
  7. I think many of us were eagerly anticipating Ed’s return to the stage having recovered from injury. His role was Ivan Tsarevitch who enters the Magic Garden and encounters the Firebird , beautifully danced in her debut performance by Yasmine Naghdi. Watson’s supportive partnering and characterful acting was confident and assured. The role does not have any solo dancing it is mainly partnering , for the Firebird and then with the Beautiful Tsarevna, danced with much grace by Ed’s friend Christina Arestis . The dancing is very stylised and at the end there is a superb set piece showing the wedding of the Tsarevich and Tsarevna. The piece received a huge round of applause and I could see that Ed looked very happy to be back on stage.
  8. Saw Bolle as des Grieux years ago and thought he was terrific !
  9. The casting for Hatch House has been updated and now includes Nicol Edmonds. Catch me someone.......🥰
  10. Both The Times and Telegraph reluctantly awarded a single star. I believe if it were possible to award no stars they may have chosen that option . What a sad waste of his talent.
  11. Thank you for your report prs59 and welcome to the forum ( if you have previously reported then I missed it , sorry) I share maryrosesatonapin (....so Mary rose!) hope that by August at SW it will be settled in and far more polished. I’m so looking forward to seeing the production after the long run of traditional R&J’s at the ROH . Hoping for a report from Jan after the Lowry shows ...
