Did anybody see tonight's R&J? Such a magical ballet.
Naghdi/Ball are a lovely partnership and the Romeo/Mercutio/Benvolio trio worked well particularly in the dance before the ball.
End of the season - sob

Yes! Just got home. I saw it at the ROH in May with Marianela Nunez and an Italian ballet dancer from the Bolshoi who was a late replacement for the RB dancer. Marcelino Sambe had a bigger part and was amazing. He’s going to be a star and is hugely popular with the audience. I’m off to see the Bolshoi in August at the ROH and cannot wait!

I saw it! It was fab. Saw Mayerling when that was on, and was hoping to see The Nutcracker but didn’t make it. Planning on Coppélia in Dec!

Really enjoyed this evening and got chatting to my neighbour who knew Matthew Ball. Apparently he does his shopping at my local Sainsburyssmile
Bubbles what did you think of the Italian dancer? I heard mixed reports on his partnering!
Love Marcelino Sambe!
Also like Beatrix Stix-Brunell who was tonight's Chief Harlotwink

Just in myself. The costumes were gorgeous. Was watching with a friend who still dances in her sixties.

Yes great costumes.
Shame the season is over now...some good ones coming up next term though

Beautiful show! I found Juliet very moving. Tybalt also a wonderful dancer. Fantastic staging. I always forget how great the music is for the ballet, it just seems right for every single scene.
