"Bucharest is a beautiful town and is well worth a visit!"


Yes, Annamicro, it certainly is. And full of friendly and helpful people. If you go to the Ballet - and what a programme this is! - and are tempted by the (very reasonably priced) Stalls Boxes, just watch out for the pillars. Or take a periscope.

Quite easy to envisage which ballets Alina Cojocaru will be guesting in!!!!!!!


Really? Honestly, I have difficulties to pick out the ones where she would not be a natural guest! :D

Anyway from this very long one, I have a shorter personal list of ballets in which I'd really really love to see her :wub: : I'm crossing my fingers!!!

Just wanted to say that with Ryanair today you can go to Bucharest from Stanstead for as little as £32 RETURN!!!!!

The town is beautiful and inexpensive and the Romanian National Ballet was great in La Fille mal gardée, as it was in La Sylphide the past year: the trip is highly recommended!


I'd have loved to write something about Fille premiere, but I had no time to put together ideas in English...I hope to be able to do that when back from London.
