    Marianela Nunez was the best thing on stage last night. She made Liam Scarlett's ballet for me. And Melissa Hamilton immensely powerful. We'll done ladies. Boys looking good in Fool's Paradise and loved the glittery lighting effects.

    another special evening at the ROH. I loved all the three ballets which provided a contrasting and exilerating evening. Gosh , the dancers are so talented, focused and exciting to watch.

    Another bonus was how the tickets are priced- a real incentive to come and enjoy a special evening in a unique setting.

    Now , back to reality!

    Viscera was inspirational. A perfect work to showcase the talent of Scarlett. I look forward to seeing more of his work for the company in the future. Infra although well danced should be laid to rest. Unfortunately it disturbed the balance of the other two magnificent works of the evening.

    Triple bill last night (Thu 8th Nov) was great. Infra a huge pleasure (I have now seen it several times - the ROH premiere, the night the Opie figures caused trouble and delay, and last night). Each time better than the last. For me this was the stand out of the three. I did think the tenor/tone of the night across all three was much flatter than usual in triple bills, far less variety. Not itself a problem (and sometimes variety is jarring eg I have never found Carmen to sit well next to anything else) but I am struggling now to differentiate Viscera and Fools' Paradise cleary in recollection . . . interesting . . lovely to see so many students/younger audience members for last nights 'student special' - thanks to those who made that happen.

  5. I am taking my sons who 7 and 9 years old, tonight, I'll let you know what we think...really looking forward to it, as it will be their 1st time at The Royal Opera House. Both work hard in their ballet lessons!
