I believe that a Season summary of some kind is due out this week.

The online announcements are ahead of it.

The ROH Friends magazine has arrived but there aren't any performance dates for 2021/22 in it, just booking dates. It says the new season summary should be issued at the beginning of June. 

 

For this summer it does say that the "meet the Young Dancers" insight event will now be streamed on 7th May. Other insight events are mentioned but there are no dates for these yet.

This is me probably being unrealistic and totally wishful thinking, but I don't suppose Kevin has seen the light (and what so many people want) and is starting the season with La Fille? To open up with such a happy, fun, colourful ballet after 18 months of practically no full length ballets would be a real joy and a great reply to the months of stresses and strains experienced by so many. It's probably too good to be true but all the other full-length ballets mentioned in the programme outline in March seem to have been accounted for later in the year if the School/NHS programmes are accurate. Unless they're doing spilt performances of Romeo and Juliet in September and February. If Wayne Macgregor's new full length is in October surely they wouldn't open with another debut with Like Water for Chocolate, or a contemporary triple bill when they know people are desperate for a full length work after months of short ballets. I can only hope, I suppose until June when more should be revealed.

Didn't one of the announcements mention that the season is bookended by the new ballets? Dante project opening and Like water for chocolate closing the season. Or have I imagined that? They may have changed plans since then of course.

 

Then with the clues in the link we seem to have Giselle in late autumn, Nutcracker over Christmas, Romeo and Juliet early in the New Year, Swan Lake in spring.

Just like the olden days 😉

Just to note some of the ROH lifts are out of commission

 

Main Stage

 

There is no lift and step-free access to the auditorium for tickets that use doors 1D, 2D, 3E and 4E due to maintenance work. Wheelchair and companion seats are still available on level 6 (door 6F) and in the Stalls Circle. Step-free access to the left hand side of the auditorium is subject to delay due to only one lift being in operation.

Can anyone confirm the ticket limits please? I am correct in thinking that it is  4 max. per performance on any one date (as opposed to 4 per Mixed  Programme in total over however many dates)?

When I did my booking this morning, I was able to book more than 4 tickets over the run of each programme (don't know about the actual per performance limit as I only booked 2 for each).

Any more info you can share on the booking process this time round? For example, how broken down are the sections of say the Amphi and the Balcony (the video only gives us a glimpse of the booking sections in the Grand Tier)?

Thanks for the feedback. I seem to remember last Autumn tickets were limited to 2 per programme, so there is more individual leeway now, but presumably no more seats, so it will be interesting to see how this pans out.

Does it give any indication of how long they are going to be unavailable?  Not long, I hope - audiences have waited long enough to see live performances :(   And given my ongoing lack of familiarity with the door designations, can anyone tell me which lifts they are in a way which doesn't involve door numbers? ;)

I think this must be the lift on house right that's by the stairwell, rather than the two "express" lifts that only stop at the lower and upper amphitheatre and open directly onto the lower amphi lobby, if you can call it that.

 

I agree that a seating plan with door numbers would be a useful thing to have on the website but I can't find one (not even in the accessibility section).

Same as the last couple of booking periods, select a section then choice of price range (plus boxes in GT and balcony). Appears to be no SCS available.
