  1. Hi all, Selling my ticket to this lovely Mixed Bill. Lower Slips Right, A90. Selling face value, £12. Dream : Akane Takada, Steven McRae Symphonic Variations: Marianela Nuñez, Vadim Muntagirov M+A, Zenaida Yanowsky, Roberto Bolle I can hand over on the night, but would prefer not to be too long at the ROH as I now have another commitment that night! Thank you.
  2. Does anyone know when (or whether) the Royal Ballet intends to release this dvd, announced some time ago?
  3. Now that Youtube is official and the clips are (mostly) legally licensed, I have noticed that all sorts of old stuff is being uploaded. Thames News, for example, has posted some pretty old stuff including this: It's a news item about a royal gala at Covent Garden in 1986 (I think) which was a performance of Ashton's last production of Cinderella. Nice rehearsal footage and an interview with Anthony Dowell. The clip was uploaded earlier this year and the quality is very good for a change. (Sorry about the link but I've forgotten how to do it neatly - could some nice moderator direct me to the instructions?) Thanks Linda
  4. I was going to add this to the thread about the RB's Ashton Mixed Bill but it is going a bit off-topic so I've started this one instead. In the BBC's recent documentary about the RB "Dancing in the Blitz", there was a clip of the dress rehearsal of the first production of SV. The only surviving dancer from the original cast, Henry Danton, talked about it as being a relaxation for the dancers to dance something that was pure dance. Despite its technical difficulties those who danced it in the past apparently loved it. According to the programme (narrated by David Bintley) the clip has never been seen before which opens up all sorts of possibilities. If it's from the RB archives maybe more film from this era will be made available for us to see. Incidentally, if anyone missed this fascinating documentary, I have a home recording which I am happy to lend. Linda
  5. There is a double page article in today's edition of The Times about Frederick Ashton and his ballets.
  6. Just realised we haven't got a thread started for the Royal Ballet's new triple bill (Birthday Offering/A Month in the Country/Les Noces), which had its first night tonight, so thoughts here, please.
  7. Fille starts a short run tomorrow with Nunez and Acosta, and also showing at cinemas around the world on May 16th with Marquez and McRae. Please discuss the performances here.
  8. I know it's a bit early yet, as performances don't begin until the middle of next week, but I thought I'd start a thread in case anyone wants to comment on tonight's insight evening or anything else relevant. (Don't forget that we already have a thread for Period 2 casting, if anyone needs to post about cast changes: http://www.balletcoforum.com/index.php?/topic/35-rb-period-2-casting/).
