Thanks for that, Bluebird. 

 

Does anyone happen to know how long the running time is (or can anyone make an educated guess?).  I've had problems getting back from High Wycombe in the evenings in the past because the train times are a bit erratic, and if I go for the matinee I need to be back in time for a 7.30 start at the ROH.

 

 

Birmingham-based balletgoers of course also have a direct rail service ...

I've just looked at the Wycombe Swan website.  The dancer in the photograph is Yvette Knight.  She was wonderful in this last night in Cheltenham!  She is one of the dancers on whom the work was created last year.

Well, it's definitely suitable and I'm sure children particularly love Pineapple Poll - it's such good fun!

 

Lyric Pieces is an abstract work to piano music by Grieg - very elegant with some humour and great use of concertina style paper props.

 

The bite-sized pieces are just that!
