  1. Looking forward to the streamed Nutcracker, does anyone know which cast it will be? I assume it has already been filmed. Sorry for those of you who had tickets and now cannot see it at the opera house, as well as all the dancers. Hopefully we will get back to normal soon.
  2. Many thanks capybara for your help in this. They were such lovely dancers and I look forward to seeing them in roles in the future.
  3. Just watched Scherzo for the second time, really lovely - well done Valentino on creating it. Does anyone know who the two dancers in red were and also the young man (in blue) who did some solos during the piece. Such a lovely performance from all the young dancers in this ballet. Another one to stand out for me was the pas de deux from Concerto - one of my favorite ballets and danced so beautifully.
  4. I agree with that, I would love the Opera house to go back to how it was some time ago. I remember attending Wolf Works and finding it difficult to see from the amphitheatre what was happening, it was much easier to see at the cinema relay.
  5. Yes it is available online for 14 days I think. Just go to the ROH website and click on Watch on Vimeo and it will go to the youtube of last nights performance. The ballet segment starts about 40 mins into the programme and starts with an introduction by Wayne McGregor. Just realised someone has already answered this!
  6. Has anyone any information about the length of this evenings concert?
  7. This brings back memories. I saw Svetlana Beriosova and Donald Maclearly in Giselle in 1964 at the ROH. My first ballet though, was in 1950 in Coventry - it was The Sleeping Princess, performed by the company run by Mona Inglesby.
  8. I have just found my VHS tape of Peter and the Wolf. It was filmed in 1997, with Sir Anthony Dowell as the Grandfather, Martin Harvey the Wolf, the rest of the cast I don't recognise, but somebody may know of them. Peter - David Johnson Bird - Layla Harrison Duck - Karen Lingham Cat - Elizabeth Halliday Hope that helps.
  9. I have a VHS of Peter and the Wolf with Martin Harvey as the wolf - will have to see where it is. I must have bought it about 20 years ago as I remember my eldest grandson (now at Uni) loved it. Enjoyed watching the new version from 2011 - my youngest granddaughter was watching it at home with her parents - they all loved it.
  10. I have received an apology from the ROH Customer Services about using the only matinee for the mixed bill for a Welcome performance. They said they would pass my comments on to the Welcome Team, who have said they would take what I said into account when next planning events to avoid this happening again. We will have to wait and see!
  11. I tried this morning to book seats in the amphitheatre for the mixed bill on Sat 13th June only to find no seats on offer. I discovered that this was now listed as a welcome performance, though there were no indications of this in the magazine or online. I know it is important to encourage new visitors, but to do this for the only matinee for that programme is very disappointing. There have been a lack of matinees this season - especially for mixed bills (particularly in the spring season and winter) - so it is annoying for it to happen again. For those of us who live outside L
  12. They did give us all vouchers to use for another screening (or any other event), but it did not make up for us missing the ending of The Cellist, which I imagine was very moving.
  13. I saw this at the cinema last evening. Dances at a Gathering was lovely, if a bit long - wonderful performances from all the dancers. The Cellist was very moving but was spoiled for us when the live feed suddenly cut off just in the last few minutes! We were told it was due to the ballet over running. It did tell her story well, though I got a bit confused at times with chorus. I thought Cuthbertson, Sambe and Ball were extremely good - just sorry not to see the final scenes.
  14. Does anyone know how long the film of CATS is and if there will be an interval? No information on the Vue cinema chain which I use. Thanks
