"Bolshoi or Royal ? - that is the question."
 
   Interesting that both big ballet companies are reducing tickets - the Boshoi in the back of ES magazine and the RB by post. But who to go to ? That the Bolshoi are reducing isn't really surprising, not with those prices,
In line with quite a few 'regulars', I am boycotting the Bolshoi (big deal I hear you all cry). I will not pay that much money to sit on a thinly covered wooden bench at high altitude in the sweltering heat.
I would dearly love to see the company (but not the repertoire really) but enough is enough and Mr Hochhauser isn't getting a bean out of me.

As for the RB: more interesting programme, more comfortable seats and air-conditioning. Oh and cheaper....

   Aghhhhh! The RB and the Bolshoi reducing ticket prices now - bit to late for me. My ballet schedule is packed - almost every day this month!!!

But I think you are a little unfair on the Bolshoi - it is an unsubsidised operation. I do not think that VH cut makes that much of a difference to tikcet prices - it the cost of moving 400 artist. It is a bit of a public works operation. There is no reason why they had to bring the orchestra along except to give them employment. Most companies leave the orchestra behind when they go on tour and hire an orchestra in the area where they are touring.

   It was posted to Friends Of CGetc - just the Ashley Triple Bill is discouted (no surprise there!)

I think the RB is very well priced so I am not going to be greedy!

   Stephanie, I have put details about the special offer on the 2 RB triple bills on the Postings page. Best available seats for 15. I got two 30 tickets for first cast for the Balanchine/Ashton/Tuckett triple bill last week, so it's worth a try!

Thanks.
