Tickets, Tickets, Tickets

Yet more tickets have arrived (my credit card will be groaning). We're going to the 35 degrees East performance; its part of the season to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Royal Ballet. This performance celebrates Dame Ninette de Valois' links with ballet in Turkey. She was involved in the founding of the Turkish State Ballet and its associated school. It should be fascinating to see their new work.


We've also got our latest clutch of ENO tickets. There's the new production of Makropoulos Case with Cheryl Barker (a production which has all the hall-marks of being recorded for Chandos's Opera in English series); a delectable revival of Ariodante with Alice Coote (someone whose career we've followed with fascination ever since seeing her in her early days in Radamisto at Opera North); Nixon in China, which we were cheated of when the re-opening of the Coliseum was delayed; and Mark Morris's staging of Purcell's King Arthur, a curiosity that we could not miss.
