  1. I am happy to have survived to it (live in Hamburg), somehow. 🙂 I am sorry for Aleix Martinez, a great Artist, IMO, but NEVER again thanks .
  2. Thank you. Everything apparently still ok in my neighborhood.
  3. "Stay positive with us!" ...I'd rather not! 😁 I am not sure if it's meant to be ironic or it's just an odd choice of words...
  4. Coronavirus update: Following government advice, all Sadler’s Wells performances have been cancelled for a period of up to 12 weeks, effective 16 March 2020. Read more
  5. Dancers and staff have the right to protect their health too. Naples Teatro di San Carlo launched #stageathome and will stream some archive performances https://www.teatrosancarlo.it/it/pages/stage-at-home.html
  6. La Scala dancers at home 😊https://www.facebook.com/1617128171/posts/10219497139851941/
  7. 83 more in UK since yesterday... Enjoy your shows tonight but also the Italian numbers. I am not try to scare you, I care of you. (The global positives are in the secon last column.) https://github.com/pcm-dpc/COVID-19/blob/master/dati-andamento-nazionale/dpc-covid19-ita-andamento-nazionale.csv
  8. Lombardy has a very efficient health care system, but of the usual 900 intensive care unit beds, 466 as today are occupied by Covid-19 patients only. More have been put in place but if the number of critical patients increases they would not be enough for Covid-19 patients and all the others requiring this kind of assistance. The whole Italy has around 5000 beds and at the moment 877 patients: if other regions will reach the number of patients of Lombardy, the system would collapse. This is the reason why Germany and France are already closing their theatres.
  9. I think that Italian experience (and maybe mistakes) should be treasured. I am surprised by the reports from UK. Not by the numbers, but by the way the positive patients are spread all around the Country: this is a respiratory virus, it travels from person to person. All the other countries have one or two points of origin and then a diffusion. The increase is exponential. I hope the results are real and reflects the actual diffusion of the virus in UK, but honestly I feel safer at home here in Milan than in theatre in any part of Europe. I hope my fear is unjustified, but stay
  10. Public buildings (post offices, outpatient ambulatory services, administrative offices etc) are not closed, only schools/universities and "cultural" ones.
  11. It's a new virus, so still under investigation (of course everything is always under investigation, but here all the data are new and more needed). We don't have a vaccine (in Italy flu vaccine is recommended and given for free to risk categories, as people older than 65). We don't know if we already have antiviral drugs effective on this virus: attempts are made, but as part of an emergency situation. For these reasons it better to not spread it, as often happens with normal flu when some "heros" go to the office feeling unwell because in their absence the world could collapse.
  12. In the whole Milan district (more than 3 million people) there are at the moment 15 (fifteen) POSITIVE (so not necessarily ill) subjects. Italy did more than 10.000 tests (when Germany barely was at 1000) and most of the positives are totally asymptomatic (in the most impacted areas probably they are testing also cats and dogs). All the deads were having important comorbidities and were mainly over 80, so an extremely fragile population. A lady was tested post mortem, occurred for myocardial infarction, because she presented also pneumonia: she resulted positive and added to the co
  13. Thank you 🙂, I saw your offer but unfortunately it's a little bit more than I want to spend (max 35 pounds).
  14. Hi, I am looking for a ticket for Onegin on February 21st, possibly a cheap one but I would be happy to spend more for one with a clear view. Thank you Anna
  15. As reported in another thread, Alina Cojocaru's Armand at Sadler's Wells will be Francesco Gabriele Frola. The two male dancers for Les Lutins are likely to be Takahiro Tamagawa (already announced) and Marcelino Sambè https://www.instagram.com/p/B8hk9mPAKVp/?igshid=1cxyfsoragaz9
  16. Few days ago Kobborg posted on Intagram a photo of a late night rehearsal for Alina's show: it was easy to guess Gabriele Frola could be Armand and Marcelino Sambé the other Lutin (Takahiro Tamagawa was already announced). Great news anyway 😃 I think there are many affordable tickets still available. https://www.instagram.com/p/B8hk9mPAKVp/?igshid=18vrsxpev829p
  17. I have seen it only in video and I not have good memories, I hope I'll change my mind (hoping Neumeier doesn't think to cast the couple pictured in the most used advertising photo... 🤢) I am very happy that Sylvia is back: I have been waiting for "her" 🙂
  18. we posted at the same time: yes, he left from that studio to go directly to the office to resign. The resignation was announced almost real time by the Royal Ballet. Sergei danced in Alinas Galas in Japan one month later, as I wrote. We could ask many questions about what happened and why, but I think we would need another thread and probaly have already had more than one 🙂
  19. It was commisioned by Polunin so I don't think this could be possible. It's a small production, with a cast of 23 and recorded music and lasting just 1 hr 20 min without interval, that would suit better to a theatre: the loss of details in the artistic performance of an actress as Alina Cojocaru is not compensated by a huge corps and a huge set to move. It makes no sense to watch this production from the top of the theatre. I hope that the ones attending for the first time would not be disapponted feeling short changed: many ideas of Kobborg are very interesting and Cojocaru a
  20. Thanks everybody for the suggestions 🙂 Anyway if I will not be attending to the show I'd love to go outside London: I've been in London more than 100 times but usually busy in the evening, having shows to attend to. Thanks the outrageous ticket pricing for this show, this time maybe I could finally visit Oxford or Cambridge...
