I can't see that we have a thread already going for this, but someone please let me know if there is one and I'll merge them.

 

Mixed feelings about today's experience, really.  Despite the ROH website informing me that there would be a queue operating from 8.55 am, and despite my refreshing the page numerous times from that time onwards, I didn't get put into the queue until 9 am, by which time there were some 750 people ahead of me :(

 

Not hugely successful, but I've known worse.  Have had to go for a few rear amphi standings, which is not normal.  (If anyone has any inexpensive Nunez/Muntagirov Filles or Osipova Anastasias - but not the cinema one - going spare, please bear me in mind :) )  I gave up in the end: it's too hot to bother.  Internet Explorer was only giving me the "best available" option at times, and of course the ROH website and I don't agree on what's "best", so I gave up and used Firefox, which wasn't, although that tended to hang annoyingly.

 

NB: there is far better availability for Les Enfants Terribles on the Barbican website - although there *is* a booking fee to be contended with there.

As some of the chaps I am privileged to work with in different prisons might say, 'it was smooth'.

Oddly, I didn't get a reminder about public booking opening this morning and so I didn't know about it.

In and out within 7 mins, pretty accessible seats, and my first choice of dates - one of my easiest and fastest bookings yet!

 

No aisle seats - as bloomin' usual - but at least managed to get extra legroom instead.

I always set a reminder in my own calendar.

I was in and out very smoothly too though I couldn't get a front row centre Balcony or Amphi for Roberta's Fille matinee so hedged my bet with a balcony standing place for £8, I decided against Anastasia will watch the live relay cheaper and better view/less all round hassle (no trek to London) so a cheap day today:-)

Availability is often better at General Booking than Supporting Friends or Friends.

Ain't dat da Truth!

Oh dear, I did rather well and it was quick and easy about 09.30.  Like others, though, I didn't get the usual email warning about booking opening but had diary dated it.  Next season will be more expensive with Woof Works and and as many Mayerlings as I can manage!

I apparently got an email at 5.30 this morning.  Not that I was looking at that hour, of course ;)

This is really weird, as a very irregular attender I got an email reminding me last week!
