Birmingham Royal Ballet casting - Autumn 2018

Recommended Posts

yippeeeeee.  I get my favourite pairing.  It's Celine Gittens and Tyrone Singleton on the Thursday night.

 

I would have been very happy to see Lachlan Monaghan but my first preference is always to see Tyrone and Celine in anything.

Does this mark a change of heart from BRB about when to announce casting? Salford has been announced a full two months ahead!

I've just booked this at Sadler's Wells as a Parisian friend will be over.  Her first ballet, and Fille would not be my first choice as it is so atypical and can be too broad for my taste (ironically exactly this Fille-as-intro situation has happened to me before).  Is the BRB  usually a good production?

I see BRB's website is following the "everyone has bandwidth to burn: let's run videos automatically" school of thought - beware!

 

I'm afraid I'll have to wait until Sadler's Wells to see this run :(

You can stop that by turning off Javascript in your browser preferences. Chrome allows you to do that per site rather than just globally, or to do it globally and then set it to allow Javascript per site.

Hmm, not too obvious in IE11, but thanks, John.  All these things you have to re-set on a relatively new computer ...

I'll really miss Jade, I've always enjoyed her performances.  Her Spring/Summer season this year was exceptional so very much a "high" to leave on.  She absolutely owned Upper Room this Summer.

 

Very best wishes to Jade.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.  That really does leave me in a quandary!

 

Can someone please remind me how long BRB's production lasts?

All great casts but it’s a real shame that Miki Mizutani and Lachlan Monaghan aren’t being seen by the London audience.

Ditto Delia Mathews and Brandon Lawrence.  I would have thought their casting would have helped with building up the audiences.

Could it be because both are featured in Ignite and they wanted to share the principal spots for Capital exposure? .... That said, I agree with you, Two Pigeons ...
