  1. Dutch National Ballet are also creating a new production of Raymonda (Rachel Beaujean) but it will be more faithful to the original. I really hope I can get to Amsterdam next year to see that and then compare to ENBs versions. I too hope ENB will tour up north!
  2. I didn't join until December 2011!! But I love the forum for all the information and knowledgeable members and all the lovely friends I have made. I add my gratitude to Bruce as well for starting the forum and Dance Tabs. Thank you.
  3. That is a lot when woweeee!!! You would think they lower the prices to get audiences back!
  4. And what are prices like for 21/22 as well I hear some amphi seats have hit the £100 mark?!
  5. Yes I was very pleased to see May Nagisha also promoted - I just hope they promote her to Principal quicker than the others who all had to wait so long (unlike Somova who's promotion I never did understand!)
  6. Such a long overdue promotion really delighted at this news! Huge congratulations to Olesya Novikova!
  7. I find placing my specs over the top of my homemade mask helps significantly in stopping fogging. Also you can, as others have said, polish your glasses with neat washing up liquid to create a film and you can buy anti mist cloths. The other alternative is to wear a visor as I am not aware of people saying they steam up? I will be wearing my mask in future especially on public transport as I have not suffered any colds or flu type infections since all this started it's been wonderful as I hate having colds. Despite being double vaccinated, I won't be going anywhere near a theatre for the foreseeable though because it's my preference. Streams are much cheaper and no travel hassles, albeit not necessarily the cast you want.
  8. Can anyone advise if members have to pay for the online talks or is it just the in person talks? I wonder if after the pandemic talks will still be zoomed as I live 200 miles away from London so would only really be able to do online things. Thank you.
  9. Maybe they should have some single seat only performances? The technology exists as my local cinema has a pick your own seat map available and they have hidden the seats you can't sit in. I do not propose to visit a theatre for the foreseeable anyway so I hope those who do want to go have more success in future, so frustrating though.
  10. Can only say I'm disappointed with the new 21/22 rep. Nothing happy in it like La Fille Mal Gardee, Don Quixote, Coppelia or even Jewels. I really don't understand their reasoning. Instead there's at least 3 full lengths all with sad endings. (Ignoring the RB version of Nutcracker which I don't like). We need uplifting ballets not sad tales after the year we've had. I'm afraid there's nothing there to make me risk travelling to London.
