  1. Extract from an email sent yesterday from "Development and Enterprises" at the ROH: " We are delighted to announce that early in July the Company will be making a very special journey to Budapest to film our production of Kenneth MacMillan’s beautiful Romeo and Juliet for broadcast by the BBC. …………………. The film, which is scheduled for broadcast by the BBC on Christmas Day 2019, is a collaboration between The Royal Ballet and BalletBoyz that will bring this true classic of 20th-century ballet to a huge audience of new ballet fans and life-long balletomanes alike"

  4. Can someone tell me where we've got to with RB insights and in-rehearsals, please? I made the Manon and Cassandra insights, and believe there's since been an Ashton one of some description, but is that as far as we've got yet? Just trying to work out what might be covered in Thursday's rehearsal ...
  5. The casting for Giselle and The Winter's Tale has just been posted on the ROH website: http://www.roh.org.uk/productions/giselle-by-peter-wright http://www.roh.org.uk/productions/the-winters-tale-by-christopher-wheeldon Edit: Age of Anxiety casting now added. http://www.roh.org.uk/mixed-programmes/new-wayne-mcgregor-the-age-of-anxiety-new-christopher-wheeldon It will probable be some time before we know the casting of the new works.
  6. Also posted on Twitter - spare e-ticket going for tonight's Giselle. Amphitheatre G69, face value £35. Hope it'll find a good home - if not will return to Box Office later this PM. Drop me a message if interested!

  8. Wanting tickets for any performance of Giselle. Ideally to watch Nuñez or Osipova, but not massively fussy. Thank you!
  9. Here's a thread to discuss the current run of La Fille Mal Gardée, which opened tonight, with Laura Morera and Vadim Muntagirov, making his debut, in the leading roles.
  10. Some of it is currently on the ROH website: http://www.roh.org.uk/productions/alices-adventures-in-wonderland-by-christopher-wheeldon http://www.roh.org.uk/productions/sylvia-by-frederick-ashton I assume the rest of it will be there soon. Edited to add that there's currently a problem with the listed Nutcracker casting. Calvert, Kish, Maguire, Dyer and Marriott are down to do every single performance! Edited again to record that this has now been corrected. They're now down for 2 performances rather than 24!
  11. Great evening - great reception for Wayne after new work and at the end when KOH thanked him for his contribution over last 10 years. Quick thoughts: Chroma - fresher, newer and weightier thanks to amazing addition of Alvin Ailey dancers. Liked it more than before - and in the context of a "trumped up world" a wonderful example of a magic mix of people. Multiverse - it'll split the critics I think. I liked it - the dancing terrific - total commitment to the work. There were so many moments of quiet brilliance amongst the more angst driven stretches of choreography. The set incredible - the music wonderful but demanding at times. The mix of emotion and knife-edge dancing can be head-slamming - I'd have loved to see it again to get a better idea. Carbon Life- liked it far more than last time round - ode to Michael Clark but very enjoyable. Anyway, money well spent!
  12. I've started a new topic as the other one is focused on casting. QPAC's YouTube channel has several film clips re: Royal Ballet events. This one gives an overview of their Made on the Body choreography exhibition.
  13. Is it too early to start a Royal Ballet Nutcracker topic? I very much enjoyed the recent Insight: http://www.roh.org.uk/news/watch-live-rehearsals-for-the-nutcracker-with-the-royal-ballet-on-16-november-2017 I like seeing Christopher Saunders coaching: to me he just exudes confidence, energy and a great understanding of the detail and characterisation of the roles. And it's always such a pleasure to see dancers rehearse - Mayara, Tierney, Bea and Nicol in this Insight. There's also some cast changes: http://www.roh.org.uk/news/cast-changes-the-nutcracker-201718 Do hope dancers recover quickly from any injuries. But I think this means over the main Christmas period Anna Rose will be dancing Clara on 20, 23, 28 & 30 December and 1 & 2 January. Do hope she'll have time to enjoy the celebrations.
  14. Thread for all the mixed-company MacMillan celebrations at the Royal Opera House this autumn. It kicks off tonight with Birmingham Royal Ballet in Concerto, Scottish Ballet in Le Baiser de la fée (or The Fairy's Kiss, if you prefer) and a mixed-company performance of Elite Syncopations, if I'm not mistaken. And to start us off, here's a link back to David's notes on Le Baiser de la fée
  15. Apparently the RB's season starts tonight, and I hadn't even registered Thoughts and other feedback here, please.
  16. If anyone needs a Sylvia ticket the loose seats have been released I got my favourite seat x2👍
  17. I see on the ROH website at the bottom of the page where the seasons are they have the 2017/18 season there. Obviously nothing in it yet but does anyone have any idea when it will be announced? I know it's usually the beginning of April but I thought as the outline was already there it may mean it's a bit early this year.
  18. Virtually nothing left for Macmillan triple bill on 18/19 October.Even Orchestra Stalls completely sold out for 19th.
  19. My little girl has just been accepted into The Royal Ballet as a junior associate. Am awaiting further info but just wondered if anyone knows how it all works? Do they get invited back after each term or are they there for the duration of they are happy etc? Also anyone know what date term starts in Sept? Or where you get the uniform?? So many questions... hope someone can help!
  20. I have one free e-ticket to Zenaida's talk in the Clore Studio, ROH tonight, which starts at 7.15 pm. It is a side seat, to the left, 2nd row. The ticket is free of charge and can be emailed. Kind regards Allison
  21. So, I am 23 and will only be starting. When I complete my training I will be at least 30. So until when can one join the Royal Ballet and also up to which age can one stay in the Royal Ballet? There must be a way to enter later?
  22. Was surprised to see most of the casting is on the ROH website for Summer, can't see it anywhere here yet, sorry I can't copy but can remember M and A casting as: Yanovsky/Bolle Ferri/Bonelli Osipova/TBC Lots to think about!
  23. Foteini Christofilopoulou was at the dress rehearsal of the opening night cast (opens on 28th April). Here are a few photos: Francesca Hayward, Edward Watson © Foteini Christofilopoulou.
