  1. Does anyone know if it will be released in the UK on DVD? I desperately want a copy!
  2. Hi I have just looked on amazon.co.uk and cannot find a DVD of 'The Company' listed-has it been released in the UK yet on DVD?
  3. Hi The program doesn't seem to want to let me email you! That would be amazingly kind-could you let me know how much you want for postage etc Thank you I am very grateful!
  4. Hi When was it shown, why did I miss it!! Is there any chance at all (down on knees and begging!) that I could have a copy too???
  5. I have also been told that they have a greater work ethic than we do (a generalised we I know!) It's also something my mother used to quote at me whilst I was practising (and still does if given half a chance!) Also 'you need some more backbone to put in the place of that wishbone!!!'
  6. Could there be a link on each of the new forums to get to the other one (if you see what I mean)-maybe there is one already and I'm being extremely stupid but otherwise I cliked the 'back' button which took me to a page which had expired so !had to re-open my browser and go to ballet alert all over again!! Thanks
  7. Thank you for your suggestions! How interesting that it was the first ballet you saw Alexandra! David Leonard at dancebooks.co.uk says that 'I am a dancer' is not in print and amazon says it's not available so......??? I will try the other one though! Meanwhile if any UK people (dare I say it.....) don't want there copy anymore-very unlikely I know or would be happy to lend it to me-I will treat it like gold then I would be very grateful-no-make that very very grateful!
  8. I know some people are sceptical about this work but I love it. I have never seen the Fonteyn/Nureyev (wasn't born when they were dancing much to my regret!) version but have seen sylvie and nicholas (le riche) at ROH several times (rehearsal and perf which was an honour!) I seem to remember that the F/N version is on a video of Nureyev called 'I am a dancer' (I think it's called that!) could someone possibly put me right on this and also any ideas about where to get hold of a copy-is it still 'in print' as it were?!! Thank you

    I have just discovered ebay!! Going to be tough to explain to my parents that I just 'had' to add to my collection-vital learning tool!! Poor student though and this enforced academia (injury woes) needs some higlights! However I live in the UK-but it is fairly hopeless in terms of especially ballet DVD's on ebay (small country!). I would be playing them on a UK DVD player or computer, do no US DVD's work on these machines. VEry bad at technology!! Also does ebay.com have a currency converter!! Or does anyone know of any other UK sites for cheap ballet DVDs or videos? Also what is the deal on putting videos onto DVD-presumeably you need a DVD writer-so will have to wait for the prices to drop but would like to know a bit about the technology. In the end I would aim to put my whole collection on DVDs as I live in fear of my videos breaking or dying on me!! Thanks
  10. I watched it last night having taped it, and firstly as usual the opera ballet balance was not even!! (not that I don't like opera) My main quibble however echoes I think a lot of people that yes there were technical faults, things that didn't come of quite right-but I felt that everything was far too safe. No risks were seemingly taken therefore the drama that should be in these showstoppers simply wasn't there. They pulled off the tricks but just 'look I can do this and this and this' not 'WOW sit up on the edge of your seat and look at me do THIS!!' Everyone has off nights and they dance a knackering schedule most of them but it was a very special gala whcih deserved and needed special dancing with fireworks!!!
  11. Anyone??? The amazon one seems to be unavailable and I can't find anything about london CDs to pester them about the other one-please help me someone!! thanks
  12. Thanks! Not sure how I missed this one!
  13. Thanks for the reassurance!! I would hate to think of such a lovely and very important thatre being abandoned!
  14. What is happening to the old theatre, how sad if it is being replaced before I have had a chance to go!
  15. Thanks so much! I will try to track the second one down-I did a search for the first-amazon.co.uk said it was unavailable at the moment-does anyone have any more information-or ideas about locating them?
