  1. Thanks for the update - I hope that Anna Tikhomirova will appear in one of the DonQs on 16 & 17m as I really hoped to see her.
  2. Thank you very much for the heads up - have to say this years gala was a flop compared to Ivan Putrovs excellent gala the following week. I wonder if her will be returning as well? I shall think very carefully about this one as it does clash with a rather good back to back in Vienna of Onegin and Jewels!
  3. A UK friend of mine saw the Friday Jane Eyre show - Copeland/Stearns I think - and he said he thought it was fabulous.
  4. Loved the triple bill yesterday (Friday matinee) I thought Magri was wonderful as the Firebird! So many great dancers at the moment though. Nothing to not like yesterday. Got some lovely shots of the curtain calls.

  5. Love the photos especially RobS thank you for sharing. Looking forward to the Friday (very, no, ridiculously) early matinee. I know there are some cast changes but are we expecting Muntagirov in Symph in C? There's a man missing on the ROH website casting!
  6. Received an email from TFL today to advise:- anyone in London who might have used the cross river RV1 service to/from Covent Garden this is being withdrawn from service shortly. Also amends to the 59 this will terminate at Euston now not Kings Cross.
  7. Exactly! I was very surprised to see him still listed - Hallberg that is!
  8. Thank you for this Richard some nice casts I just wish Nunez/Muntagirov were doing a matinee in there that would be a treat.

  10. We did have the "blue badge" scheme at one time but that has fallen somewhat by the wayside - I'm as guilty as most for not wearing my badge. I tend to arrange with friends beforehand if I know they are going and then we catch up in one or both intervals. We most certainly do not spend our time on the mobile phones though👍😊
  11. Wow Vadimir Malakhov is looking very sharp these days! Congrats to the winners.
  12. Oh tell me about it I had a nightmare getting a ticket for that Friday 7/6 matinee because Virgin advance fares on a Friday are not cheap to start with! Only that I got an offer of 20% off I got a fare for £65. Royal Ballet are the only company in the UK I know of that have matinees at 12noon all other companies are 2 or 2.30pm. I am aware that matinee means morning. In Europe often there are Sunday matinees at 2pm 2.30pm or 4pm. It's crazy.
