  1. I really enjoyed listening to you two chatting about the deeper meaning of Swan Lake and R&J...๐Ÿ˜‚ Great episode, great start to the weekend. Thanks!
  2. I love the title! I really enjoyed reading this article. So interesting to read what Ashley and Annette have to say. Thanks for giving them some exposure. ๐Ÿ™‚
  3. Yet again they consign ballet to a ridiculous time.

  8. Another fascinating podcast. As you say TTP, we donโ€™t get to hear much from Romany as she doesnโ€™t really do social media, nor many interviews at all, so what a rare treat to hear her talk about her career past, present and future. I so hope she will be able to dance Juliet and Aurora one day... Thanks so much for this special podcast. โค๏ธ
  9. I am fascinated to know how Tony Iommi fitted into this gala??!!
  10. Give me Peggy Fleming any day.
  11. Luckily the piece faded behind the paywall before I could get frustrated at not being able to afford the Hockney or the Nureyev costume! ๐Ÿ˜†
  12. As long as they get the Dante in before the end of the year, 2021 being the 700th anniversary of his death. My hubby is a Dante scholar so wants to come and see this ballet with me. I just know already that it's going to be a miserable experience for me, no matter what the ballet is like!! ๐Ÿ˜ We had planned to go to Ravenna a couple of times during this year as that is where Dante is buried and they were planning all kinds of celebratory/commemorative events. Sadly, it looks like many of these will be cancelled, so our trips are looking unlikely for now. Let's hope this ballet m
  13. I saw them last time, and I won't forget the impact it had. All the 'regulars' in the first interval already had lumps in our throats...we were all looking at each other saying "what on Earth just happened in there"?! By the end, I was a wreck. If Fille isn't happening then seeing them again in R&J will go a very long way to making up for it!
  14. I am looking forward to Theodora...that's about it for now, but will have to look again once the ballet has settled in; I am so unused to booking and looking that I might have missed something!
  15. Well, they are certainly rolling out all the usual big sellers, but as I love all of them I am very happy about it. Yes, something sunny like DonQ or Coppelia or Fille would have been lovely, but I agree with DanJL above...no matter how sad or tragic, for me the beauty of the performance is what makes me happy, even if I am weeping at the end! I just hope that all the scheduled debuts for Swan Lake that didn't happen last year will happen in the new season. I will be interested to see which of the Ashton ballets they are putting on; I wonder why they haven't announced them? M
