Hooray.  Thanks, Bluebird.  I still can't get the "all dates" casting to come up, though.

I can, so maybe it's your browser.

I can get it too. You  have to scroll down performance by performance. There are 4 pieces and a total of 28 dancers listed for each show.

Wow, trying 5 different browsers on a mobile and a tablet, and either all dates I checked have exactly the same cast, or they need to fix their website.

The full casting won't come up on my iPad but I can get it on my PC (by clicking on 'see casting for all dates')

it was the same for me.  Corrales was, I thought, sadly notable by his absence in the casting lists.  I pray he is not injured again.

I thought his Coliseum performances were his last with the company?

That won't load for me (on a laptop now) - and I don't have any issues with slow internet connection. I'll try a PC later but getting a bit daft now!

 

I'm not one for marketing team-bashing, but they also sent out the e-blast with an internal title rather than a public title ('Open for Voices of America Casting', the 'Open' presumably being as opposed to patrons/friends).

I also couldn’t get the info on a tablet, it was the same cast list for each date, even when I clicked “ all dates”. I had to switch to laptop to get the correct info. Anyway, I booked for the matinee performance of the 13th - very much looking forward to it.

They have Friday matinees?  That's useful to know, given that I can't do 2 performances in one day at the moment.

You might be thinking of Corrales’s Instagram post announcing his resignation. He wrote of his (then) upcoming performances of Le Jeune Homme: “This will also be one of my final performances with the English National Ballet at the Coliseum following my resignation with the company.”

 

From the ENB press release: "Corrales... leaves English National Ballet at the end of the 2017/2018 season." (emphasis my own)

 

Sounds to me like he is still a fully paid up member of the company and available to perform until the end of the season allowing for injuries.

Well, that's two laptops, two operating systems and two completely different browsers I've tried getting the full run of casting on, without success.

Press Release re Casting:

 

English National Ballet 

Voices of America  

Robbins / Forsythe / Barton 

Sadler’s Wells, London 

Thursday 12 – Saturday 21 April 2018   

www.ballet.org.uk  

 

From 12 - 21 April 2018, English National Ballet will present the world premiere of Playlist (Track 1,2) by William Forsythe, his first creation for a UK ballet company in over 20 years.

 

Playlist (Track 1,2) will be presented at Sadler’s Wells as part of Voices of America, a new mixed bill dedicated to neo-classical ballet with an American accent, featuring works with audacious attitude from three generations of choreographers. Alongside his new work, English National Ballet will also perform Forsythe’s Approximate Sonata 2016

 

Voices of America also sees another work new to English National Ballet, Jerome RobbinsThe Cage. One of his most shocking and intense ballets, The Cage, performed as part of the Jerome Robbins Centennial Celebrations, a global celebration of the 100th birthday of Jerome Robbins.

 

Completing the mixed bill is a reworked version of Aszure Barton’s Fantastic Beings. Originally created as part of English National Ballet’s She Said programme in 2016, Fantastic Beings is a mysterious, magnetic work performed by 16 dancers.

That's making my head spin trying to keep up, but thanks for posting that, Jan - and to ENB for supplying it, of course.

Do ENB mixed bills at Sadler's Wells tend to come up at the TKTS booth in Leicester Square, if there is a fairly substantial number of unsold seats?

 

Thanks in advance.

Sadler's do use tkts, certainly.  (Whether they'd have anything cheaper than the offers we have in the Ticket Offers forum may be debatable, though)

Thanks.  I've had Scottish Ballet at SW from there before, and ENB at the Coliseum, but wasn't sure to what extent it was the house and to what extent the company that decided whether to offer them there or not.

In fact, depending on what performance you're after, you might be able to do better than tkts, Ruth ;)

Pretty sure I know exactly what you are talking about, but sadly it's a no-go for me!

You're talking in riddles as far as I'm concerned, Alison and RuthE. Please don't taunt the rest of us with hints about secret sources for SW tickets.

Answer appears to be No, from what I can see.

Thanks. Given that the latest update on the thread in the Special Offers forum gives a 40% discount, I’d have been more than happy with that. Almost booked for tonight but am glad I didn’t, as I’m in need of an early night. I may yet do so for Friday evening.

Yes, but I'm assuming it's still only for certain performances.  My trouble is the huge gap (more than 100%) between the bottom price and the next price up, which I think is excessive.
