  1. Oops sorry, some wrong times and no prices in my original post. The ROH matinee ticket has now gone. The remaining Linbury tickets are as follows: Wed 23rd June 7:15 pm LEVEL LG Upper Circle LGB, B-26 | Full Price £15.00 Thurs 24th June 2:30 pm LEVEL LG Upper Circle LGA, B-24 | Full Price £15.00 Thurs 24th June 7:15 pm LEVEL LG Upper Circle LGA, A-5 | Full Price £10.00 View obstructed by tier ledge & safety rail, side view of the stage Friday 25th June 7:15 pm LEVEL LG Upper Circle LGA, A-5 | Full Price £10.00 View obstructed by tier ledge & safety rail, side view of the stage Sat 26th June 2:30 pm LEVEL LG Circle LGB, C-29 | Full Price £10.00 View obstructed by pillar Sat 26th June 7:15 pm LEVEL LG Upper Circle LGA, B-24 | Full Price £15.00 Would prefer that the tickets go to families of children who are performing, but will sell any remaining ones to anyone who's interested from Tuesday.
  2. Unfortunately both I and a relative are unable to come to get to London for the RBS summer performances. So selling one ticket for the RBS ROH matinee on 10th July (£3, restricted view) and one for each of the Linbury RBS performances: Wed 23rd June 9:15 p.m. Thurs 24th June 4:30 p.m. Thurs 24th June 9:15 p.m. Friday 25th June 9:15 p.m. Sat 26th June 4:30 p.m. Sat 26th June 9:15 p.m.
  3. This online programme looks very interesting: https://eno.org/news/national-rollout-of-eno-breathe-programme-for-people-recovering-from-covid-19/
  4. I've watched World Ballet School Day, plus RBS and other schools' lockdown videos. But I've really missed the visits to classes at RBS, Elmhurst Paris Opera Ballet School demonstrations and more. Is anyone attending interesting virtual classical ballet summer schools as an observer? (I'm catching up on posts now, so sorry if I've missed something in this area.)
  5. I wonder if they have any special training or footwear? I have also seen that position many times in rhythmic gymnastics.
  6. I've heard it described as a toe-knuckle stand but maybe it should be something like the feet-wreck position? 😃 Glad it has no place in ballet....
  7. With the huge number of single-use face masks being disposed daily throughout the world, I'm wondering if the elastic could be used for ballet purposes? Probably most face mask elastic is narrower (and less robust?) than ballet shoes elastic, but what about elastic in costumes? Anyway, if anyone out there could use a batch, I'm happy to send when I'm next in England (after cleaning of course).
  8. Just got a message to say that the Holland Park summer programme (including the July RBS summer performances) won't take place. The message does say that "OHP is currently exploring opportunities to mount operas scheduled in our 2020 season at a future date, at alternative venues." Very sad...
  9. The message I received from RBS Friends said that "access to our buildings to all but essential staff will be limited for the rest of the Spring Term. This sadly means there can be no external audiences at internal School events for the foreseeable future." Presumably this will also affect the Ninette de Valois choreo performances originally scheduled for late March. Sad but understandable to protect the students... Hoping everyone stays well.
  10. Just heard that the 2nd and 3rd (final) repeat days of the ballet school demonstrations (21st and 22nd December) are also cancelled.... Of course there are important issues at stake that affect the students' futures - but what a pity that they are not yet resolved, and that the amazing annual demonstrations, which play such an important part in the life of the school, probably won't take place this year...
  11. If you missed the webcast, the recording of this amazing performance will be online until 20th March at medici.tv (just requires free guest registration - no fee or subscription). Highly recommended!
  12. If you are following election results on Thursday/Friday but looking for something slightly more inspiring - Alma Deutscher's Carnegie Hall Debut will be streamed live on medici.tv at 7:30 p.m. Thursday 12th December New York time (12:30 a.m. Friday in the UK). More about this very exciting programme at https://www.medici.tv/en/concerts/jane-glover-conducts-deutscher-alma-deutscher-natalie-image-and-jonas-hacker/ Apparently, only free registration (and no payment) will be required to watch the stream. (If any of you are in New York on Thursday night and looking for two tickets at cost for this sold-out performance, please PM me. Sadly I will not be able to go myself.) As you will see from her website (http://www.almadeutscher.com) Alma, now 14, continues to gain international recognition for her most most beautiful compositions as well as her other very special talents and personality. She and her family recently moved to Vienna where Alma feels most at home musically.
  13. From the ROH site: General: 15 April 2020, 11am Young ROH: 14 April 2020, 11am Friends: 11 March 2020, 11am Young Friends: 11 March 2020, 11am Friends+: 3 March 2020, 11am Supporting Friends: 26 February 2020, 11am Premium 1 Friends: 19 February 2020, 11am Premium 2 Friends: 18 February 2020, 11am Does anyone know if they will be keeping some tickets back for general booking? And will there also be priority booking for the semis?
  14. Unfortunately I'm tied up for almost all of tomorrow. If anyone hears of segments which will NOT be available afterwards, that would be very helpful to know - thanks.
  15. Selling this ticket at half price or less/zero if you know someone who might appreciate it and can't pay. Don't want this ticket to be wasted!
