  1. Ah, but it wont be the same doubled up Elite as in the Gala, and there will be all the other items in the programme. I had the impression there'd be some different ones there.
  2. Lovely. Although that's the same week, including that evening, that there are the four live performances at ROH of the Elite Syncopations etc programme. Hope this doesn't mean there wont be a live streaming of that
  3. Since I'm on doctors' (yes, plural) orders not to travel on public transport, and walking from the outer edge of Greater London to ROH is a bit far, I'm hoping that a performance of each will be streamed
  4. And the BBC News item is now as a clip on bbc.co.uk/news, and when I looked it was listed as one of the most watched. There was more in it than I saw on the 6pm News
  5. If you like to support The Royal Opera House with your DVD / Blu-ray buying, the Concerto Enigma Raymonda recording is now available from the ROH shop.
  6. I was expecting a selfie of your feet doing a little dance, perhaps steps taught to you by your favourite dancer ๐Ÿ˜€
  7. Some people don't have sufficient, or any, online access and some people prefer to avoid Amazon. Some people just like having the actual items to use at will. To stop issuing dvds/blurays would not, imo, be a good idea. (I was going to write something stronger but changed my mind)
  8. I have it on my TV OK but on my dvd recorder it has picked up Sky Arts as channel 11 but no programmes showing on the guide so can't set to record. Anyone else have this problem? There's no way I'm going to get up to watch ballet at 6am or thereabouts which is when they seem to be showing such programmes.
  9. A photo from the main stage? RobR. I hope you'll do a dance on the main stage ๐Ÿคพโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ˜€
  10. So pleased that Ed Watson's full retirement as a principal is held over for him to do farewell performances in the role created for him in Dantรฉ's Inferno. Something for me to look forward to.
  11. Just watched Paw de Deux, Thanks Bruce. While a cat might not feel so cooperative in dancing with a human pretending to be a cat, a self-respecting cat would undoubtedly accept being Apollo, who is, after all, a god. ๐Ÿ˜บ
  12. I have seen this production of Faust many times, and particularly remember the first one. The Royal Ballet lent them Eric Underwood for the lead dance role, and he wowed the opera audience, a superb performance. This setting of the ballet IMO works well in the context of this opera production, not to be considered as a standalone ballet interpretation of the music.
  13. And if you would like to donate part you could always take the refund then give back your chosen amount.
  14. The Royal Opera House has said it will be providing some free broadcasts. Watch its social media channels for info. And I will be telling them not to refund me my ticket money, make it a donation.
