    Gutted I wasn't able to get to London to see it! Better luck next time. Well done to the company (especially Lauren and Zenaida) !

    Absolutely sensational evening at the ballet. Thiago Soares and Marienella Nunez just go from strength to strength..,when IS that film, All I Am, about this pair being released? DGV was amazing...what speed,what grace....the whole evenig was brilliant.

    Enjoyed Sweet Violets and whole programme. But in spite of buying a programme I can't confirm what the Rachmaninov trio is . Can someone please help?

    Absolutely incredible!! Of all the triple bills I've seen at the ROH (and that's plenty!!) this is out on its own. Pure bliss. Serenade is a typically challenging and intricately delicate Balanchine. SV is just awesome narrative staging, beautifully crafted and excellently danced. And DGV is just a scintillating breathtaking spectacle, every time I see it. Beautiful music and great dancing skill add up to a perfect evening of ballet beauty. Please ... don't miss it!!!!!

    I was captivated by the performance of Tierney Heap in DGV. A ballerina for the next generation - Electric, elegant, athletic.

    Hi, I would really love to watch these 3 performances, especially Sweet Violets by Thiago and Leanne, but I do not actually have a chance to go to the Royal Ballet and watch them (as I live overseas). Would there be a chance that these performances would come out on DVD?

      Dear Lindsey

      I am afraid that there are no plans to release this mixed programme on DVD.

      Best wishes

      Hi Ellen, thank you so much for the reply. I do hope that ROH would consider compiling and releasing this on DVD as such productions are really incredibly amazing and it would be a pity if people outside of London (and those not touring London) are not able to catch it. Just a suggestion and it would certainly be appreciated if considered
