Does anyone know if I am correct in assuming that the live stream will be available on demand to watch afterwards? I'm out this evening...

 

So am I - I do hope it will be.  If so, at least we’ll be able to find it afterwards, given that it’s being streamed via Youtube as opposed to Facebook Live.

Wonderful.  "Your browser does not currently recognise any of the video formats available."

 

Why on earth not?  I don't usually have problems watching YouTube.

 

I left work earlier specifically to be able to watch this live for once :(

Bad luck Alison.

 

Once again I have ballet forum to thank for alerting me this was on tonight - thank you.

It really WAS unmissable.

Did we know about this? 

Yes it has been on the ROH Insights page for quite a while, and always sold out whenever I have looked

I guess you may know by now but it's the Nutcracker with Avis, Gasparini and Yudes with Christopher Carr

I gather  that Beatrix S-B as Juliet will be rehearsing in this live-streamed Insight  tonight, with Reece Clarke as Paris, coached by Edward Watson and Leanne Benjamin.

Also Christopher Saunders leading  some sword fight sequences.

Should be good !

As you referred to everyone else by their full names, would it really have taken so much time to type out Beatriz Stix-Brunell?

For goodness sake. We all have our idiosyncrasies and we all get things wrong sometimes. There's really no need for such a comment.

It’s about showing equal respect.

I admit to a degree of carelessness and laziness!  Let's move on...

Yet - as things stand at the moment, at any rate - they're not scheduled to be debuting together.

 Alison, do you mean "not scheduled" thinking of Stix-Brunell as Juliet with Clarke  as Romeo ? -  because it seems this  rehearsal is with Stix-Brunell as Juliet and Clarke as Paris.

 I don't think  we have any other official casting for Paris yet, or indeed for anyone other than R&J.

Clarke is due to debut  Romeo with  Hamilton as Juliet, and also he  will be Romeo for  Nunez.

Ah, sorry, I hadn't registered that when I posted!  I didn't think they had enough together to fill in an insight evening.

I hadn't realised that tonight's In Conversation with Takada and Hirano was going to be in Japanese!  Is it being filmed for Japan, or something?

Neither had we until we saw the wording on the back of last night's Insight programme: "in this special event for Japanese speakers."  I don't remember reading that when we first booked but, as it wasn't in the magazine, I can't check (other than by asking ROH).  Might explain why I was able to book central front row tickets though...

Well, I hope they're providing an interpreter, then - or it's going to be done bilingually, or at least summarised.

The website says it's presented in Japanese so I don't think there will be an interpreter or it being bilingual.
