Boston Ballet at The Coliseum - Promotional Prices


Recommended Posts

I have today received an email from ENO, stating that one can now book Dress Circle and Upper Circle tickets, normally £50, at half-price for all performances.  This has to be done by 1 July.  The booking code to be used is 'BOSTONARTS'.

It's such a shame that BB's programmes are not selling well. I read an interesting interview with the AD, and it's clear that the company is very excited to be coming to London for the first time in thirty years. I doubt that the company will come again if it loses a lot of money. There are probably too many overseas companies coming to London this year and those who are coming in the summer are overshadowed by the Bolshoi.

I think part of the problem is that you can't find who's dancing... Have tried googling and the info isn't anywhere as far as I can tell.

 

Mmm, and I suspect if her fans had known that Dusty Button was going to be dancing a couple of major roles this evening a few more seats might have been sold.

Oh dear! I wish I hadn't booked full price tickets several months ago, especially as it clashes with Andy Murray in the Wimbledon final. 

 

I know how you feel, I'm going to miss the ladies final today which I thought was going to be a boring walkover for Serena Williams and now isn't, and booked a Balcony ticket and now find I could have sat in the Dress Circle for half price! Perhaps I'll get moved down anyway!

 

I think this is another reason why ticket sales are so low at the Coliseum, everyone is reluctant to book in advance, the same thing happens next week as I paid full price for Coppelia, and could now get half price! 

 

I know the moral is "WAIT" but that isn't always possible for people travelling to London.

I know how you feel, Beryl.  

 

I feel the same concern when I look at the decimation of this country's savings rates wrought by a government that has been/is hell bent on seeing that the banks that 'we' so called saved no longer can effectively function as retail banks by virtue of Funding for Lending, etc.  It is ALL worrying in the extreme.  

 

I would suggest keeping an eye on the seating charts and letting your purchase come more as a calculated risk rather than a certain guarantee as was the case in what is now I think 'another world'.  This is a policy I am currently sticking to for the Stuttgart Ballet's visit.  If the seats had appeared to be selling massively I would already now have bought some.  As they have not I won't.  Caveat Emptor and all that!!!  

 

Nowadays, it seems that 'fast and loose' has been pushed out of the box office window by 'slow and numbed'  

 

Let's just pray the NHS CAN survive!!

Are there often deals on tickets for performances at Sadler's Wells? I've never noticed any, but as their friends' and multi-buy discounts are quite generous I've not sought out other deals.

 

Like Beryl, I have bought balcony tickets for Coppelia and if I'd waited could have bought upper circle tickets for the same price. Annoying.

Well, yesterday the Balcony was closed all day and I was indeed moved down to the Upper Circle in the afternoon and the Dress Circle in the evening, I even got an aisle seat after asking for one for the evening. Seems that the Wimbledon Ladies Final was a disappointment too, so didn't miss too much, very nervous about the Men's Final today!

 

Meunier, please don't bring up savings rates. I'm still shocked after a visit to Santander on Friday, can't even get an appointment to speak to anyone til next week, I soon won't have any savings!
