I can imagine that the current Napoli may actually come over better on screen than in the theatre, given a director who can focus on what's important at any moment and cut out some of the background stuff - will be interesting to find out, anyway.

Also, the theatre is live-streaming the RDB school's Breakfast with Bournonville next Wednesday, 12th March - it's a programme put together and performed by the top classes and aimed at their own age group. Details here:

Hey, I;m going to be at that performance! I'll wave if the cameras pan around to the audience.

The livestream will be at 430 a.m. Eastern time, 130 a.m. Pacific Time. North America moves to daylight saving this weekend whereas Europe doesn't do so till March 30, hence the time difference is one hour less than usual.
