  3. For those of you going to the Royal Albert Hall to see BRB’s Nutcracker, don’t expect to see the same production as you will see in Birmingham. It’s a “special” version designed for the RAH. Still very lovely but quite different - just as the ENB “In the round” Swan Lake is different from the Coliseum production.
  4. Hi all Looking for recommendations for a quick bite to eat before the Proms - something I've always struggled with. Occasionally treat ourselves to a cocktail and sandwich downstairs in the Albert Hall but can't sustain that for everyday living! Similarly the Barbican. I like the pancake house but I'm sure there are better (and cheaper) places in the area - but my knowledge of that bit of London is not good.
  5. I've just picked this up via Twitter: BREAKING NEWS: London, Christmas is coming... For the first time ever, Birmingham Royal Ballet and Royal Albert Hall are proud to present The Nutcracker! A new version of our universally-acclaimed, quintessential Christmas ballet will bring the festive season to life on the world’s most famous stage for seven performances from 28 to 31 December 2017 with spectacular new staging, video and projection created especially for this unique production. Featuring choreography by Sir Peter Wright, Vincent Redmon and Lev Ivanov (choreogra
  6. Can anyone offer some help to a complete novice please? I am looking to book seats at the Royal Albert hall but have found the options very confusing. Can anyone explain the differences I the areas, what is the loggia, raising circle grand circle etc. Can anyone recommend where is the best place to sit to watch a ballet? Generally when I go to the theatre I prefer not to be too far forward, don't want to feel like I'm looking up at the dancers feet, but I have no idea what would be considered a good seat/ good view for watching ballet. TIA
  7. Surprised no-one has started a thread on this, being last night was the opening night. However, I went to it and thought the whole evening was lovely. Program. Winter Dreams - Farewell Pas de Deux - MacMillan - Marianela Nunez and Carlos Dying Swan - Fokine - Sarah Lamb Rhapsody - Pas de Deux - Ashton - Yuhui Choe and Valentino Zucchetti Scheherazade - Pas de Deux - Fokine - Gabriela Lugo and Luis Valle Manon - Bedroom Pas de Deux from Act 1 - Macmillan - Laura Morera and Ryoichi Harano Don Quixote Pas de Deux - Petipa/Acosta - Marianela Nunez and Carlos Part Two Mayerli
  8. Just got back from Swan Lake in the round and I was enchanted. I was a bit sceptical from the clips I had seen, whether I would like it or not, but I am tempted to go again. Alina was strong and beautiful, Osiel's jumps tore up the stage, but the 60 members of the corps were the stars, the patterns they made were unbelievable. There are some tickets still available, do go if you can. Even better, I was waiting for a taxi to go to Victoria to get the red eye coach home, and Irek Mukhamedov came out of the door, and he signed my pointe shoes! He was so humble, he said, 'I can't, I didn't d
  9. Casting has just gone up on the ENB website: http://www.ballet.org.uk/whats-on/swan-lake-round/
  10. Dancewear brand Capezio is inviting dance lovers to come down to their Endell Street store this Saturday between 1-3pm for a special event called Dancing Windows. Grab a leaflet from one of the dancers roaming the Covent Garden piazza for 10% discount on items in store and head to Endell Street for the opportunity to see some of the world’s best youth dance talent in action, as live dancing window mannequins! Students from the BRIT School and the Susan Robinson School of Ballet will be taking to the windows to show off their moves ahead of their performances at Dance Proms 2015 at the Roya
  11. Foteini Christofilopoulou was at the afternoon rehearsal with Daria Klimentová & Vadim Muntagirov cast. Here are a couple of photos to remind us of how glorious Daria is, for her retirement performances: Daria Klimentová as Juliet © Foteini Christofilopoulou.

  12. Does anyone have advice as to where to sit for the ENB Romeos? I like to be close but the photoview looks like knee up views. Would loggia or grand tier be preferable? Side or center? Many thanks for any advice.
  13. Derek Deane's 60-Swan arena production of Swan Lake for English National Ballet opened once again last night in the Royal Albert Hall. It normally works well with the public at large and there was certainly enthusiastic Twitter comment afterwards last night. But not everyone agrees. Ismene Brown, in her overnight review for the Arts Desk, considers it as being all about "numbers, geometry, soulless mechanics," and some other grumbling Tweets are appearing this morning. http://www.theartsdesk.com/dance/swan-lake-english-national-ballet-royal-albert-hall But put all of that aside. If
  14. If money is no object, where is the best place to sit? I see Grand Tier is more expensive than the stalls that are closest to the stage. Is there a problem with the stalls seats? If in the stalls is it better to be at the back than the front? If Grand Tier is not available (and if it is indeed the best), what would you recommend as next best?
