  1. No comment on the dress rehearsal today, for the usual reasons, but did anyone happen to catch the pre-show announcement about two (I think) cast changes? I missed this as my neighbour arrived rather noisily at exactly that moment and so I am puzzling as to who we saw who isn't on the cast list.
  2. I notice there is a programme on the BBC World service at 0900 on Thursday 7 November about Nureyev.Guests in the discussion include Julie Kavanagh and Thierry Fouquet.

I only saw Rudolf dance twice, in Manchester late 70's or early 80's and then later in a tiny theatre in Italy in the mid 1980's (1987 maybe?). I think he danced in Manchester because someone was injured and he stepped in, but I could be wrong... 25 yrs since this force of nature passed and we still honour his memory, and that says it all.
  6. Well whatever is, or isn't going on behind the scenes at the ENB, it didn't show in tonight's performance, which was glorious. What a fabulous place to watch a ballet, the Royal Festival Hall is, everyone can see, the sound is glorious, although the stage is small, but I soon forgot that, caught up in a production so full of gifts i didn't know where to look....
