   If you want to raise issues like this it should not be behind a veil of anonymity.

Most postings page force people to register and give email addresses. We don't to make it easy for anybody to post quickly etc. However when specific points/allegations are being made like this its only fair for all concerned that email addresses are given. People need to stand behind what they say and be accountable

As a Jew myself, I can't really give an answer. However, I can say that one doesn't need to have an ounce of intelligence to succeed as a racist.

   I see no purpose in making a broad brush accusation with absolutely no elaboration or supporting evidence!

   It's been a long tradition and it will always be!

Take a look at all the principals , stars , past and present.

And the founders of the RB , is it clear enough?

   Dear Everyone

I urge you not to rise to the bait of this deeply insecure reprobate. It only gives credence to his specious, misinformed arguments and validity to the sewer that is his mind.

Isobel

   But is it fair that non-jewish dancers don't get any chance whatsoever?

Deborah Bull , Leanne Benjamin , Sarah Wildor ,Jonathan Cope , Alina Cojocaru and Tamara Rojo ; is it a coincidence?

What about Fonteyn , Nureyev , Dowell , Makarova , etc?

   The jewish people are successful in all professions, but particularly so in the arts. I don't know if your claim is correct as far as the R.B. is concerned, but you have made an error in suggesting that Deborah Bull is for starters as her father was the parish priest in Derby!

   I think this debate is best stoped. I have no wish to stiffle debate at all - but people need to stand behind what they say and give a real name and real email address. Until thats forthcoming I see little merit in arguing with those who hide in the shadows.

   Thank you Bruce.

This thread could become most distasteful and is not at all what the site should be about. I wonder if 'higgins' would be courageous enough to pose the question to the webmaster at the Royal Opera House site!
