"RB Class - 31/10/01"
 
   LAST EDITED ON 31-10-01 AT 07:16 PM (GMT)

Did anyone else go? I can't believe how many big names were there - Cope, Kobborg, Cojocaru. Putrov and Sasaki as well, and lots more soloists. And I was completely bowled over to see Angel Corella. I didn't recognise him at first without his trademark smile, but I did recognise those spins!

I know it's practically sacrilege to say so, but I love watching these classes even more than I do the performances. Especially the game of oneupmanship that goes one with the guys at the end. The showoffs! Does anyone know who that guy that was joking around with Cope at the end? (Cope imitating him way too close in some scary lookin'combinations, blocking our view of him, and finally supporting him in a pirouette ending in an arabesque - I nearly fell off my seat laughing.)

   I was there with a friend - we too thought it was fantastic and with so many principals. I could watch class every day and never get bored with it!

The guy joking around with Cope was Martin Harvey.

   Thanks Jane - should've guessed. I remember now an earlier RB class post saying that Martin Harvey looked like his identical twin or something, and I was thinking this throughout the whole class.

   If you think that oneupmanship was good, you should have seen Mukhamedov versus (and I use the term advisedly!) Zelensky that summer when the Royal BAllet were at the Coliseum. Worth the admission fee on their own!
