  1. Such a long overdue promotion really delighted at this news! Huge congratulations to Olesya Novikova!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. audiences will be able to buy tickets for a socially-distanced live experience, or buy an online ticket to watch online wherever they are in the world. This sounds hopeful that they will still stream some shows. For me that will be good as I won't need to go to the expense of travelling to London, I know it won't be quite the same as IRL but I'm not sure I am ready for that just yet and won't have had my 2nd vaccine until June anyway. I am content to leave IRL for a while longer if streams are still available.
  7. My last shows were Onegin at ROH followed by was Alina Cojacuru's matinee at SW In Feb 2020
  8. I just think it will be a complete tragedy if the departments close. Surely they could instead pass the items to a museum up north for example so that people up here could enjoy them without a trek to London. I love seeing costumes etc up close.
  9. This department must not be allowed to close, I have signed the petition and tweeted it as well. I have enjoyed visiting the display any times and would be very sorry if it was closed. The V&A have some very strange attitudes sometimes and I have called them out on it in the past.
