Thanks for that-I must have missed it! Not much in the way of promotions, though I am really pleased about Martin and Thiago.

I thought there might be Edward Watson promoted to Principal but maybe it is too soon.

Looking forward to next season already though! xx

No probs,

Im desperate for Royal to come back!! I cant wait for the new season lot of exciting stuff to see.....

Though i'm still angry with the opera house for getting rid of the Overture membership (for under 26s), gutted!! Can't afford the standard 70 fee!

Oh well, Bygones!

Oh No! :speechless:

I hadn't realised they have got rid of it! I'm an Overture member too, and apart from not being able to afford 70 for the membership (that's like 11 tickets in the slips!) I'm not sure it's worth that kind of money.

I mean, yes it is great to get advanced booking but I manage to augment by bookings with tickets I buy nearer the time, and don't really have any trouble getting fairly decent ones (not stalls or anything, but always lower slips or amphi.) And presumably you don't get any money off vouchers either! Oh well, I'd better make the most of my membership before it runs out. xx

Unless I'm missing one, it seems that former Boston Ballet dancer Sarah Lamb will make her debut with the company on the 13th of November in the pas de deux of Thais with David Makhateli. Does this sound correct, anyone? Would love to hear about it from anyone who goes!

Hi Mme. Hermine - I believe Sarah Lamb's debut with the Company was on opening night in Requiem, but I also think that the 13 November programme will be the first time we get to see her in a solo role. Unfortunately, I won't be there!
