Good to see via YouTube and am struck yet again by the sheer hard work that has to go in to creating such roles and ballets. Not sure how Ryoichi Hirano managed to talk at the end. Good also to see Melissa Hamilton. I didn't think this was the best Insight but it's certainly whetted my appetite for performances next month. But from the relay there seemed to be a number of empty seats and why has the Royal Opera House been so limp in publicising the event and relay? Perhaps Open Up has required all available resources but the Insight Programme and website changes seem rather neglected. I do hope the website will put a link to the YouTube film as soon as possible.
I've been to a couple of daytime events in the Floral Hall recently - one of the Month of Sundays mornings and today the Ballet Studio Live:Class, and I thought both were well run events and a good use of the space to generate additional revenue. Today apparently sold out quite early, and seems set to become a regular feature. Today's dancers were mostly from the Aub Jebsen programme , which I hadn't been aware of before. Several were quite impressive, so fingers crossed for them getting full contracts in due course. Taisuko Nakao had some serious height in his jumps, and of the girls Katherina Nikelski and Yu Hang looked very neat and accomplished, while Lania Atkins was also both graceful and striking. More of this kind of thing!
