Remember:

ROH Gala is on the box live tonight

It's December the 1st and therefore you need an Advent Calendar. Heres a nice one (and which I'm told we are in!)

   This weeks issue of The Stage has a two page spread about the ROH reopening and also has a separate report about the collaberation between the BBC and the ROH. This says that the performance of Coppelia on February 19 will be broadcast live.

   I don't know about anyone else - but the FT articale really has infuriated me! I think that I may have dealt with him on Wednesday and he wasn't v polite.

It upsets me to see how he starts off so damning towards the ROH so anyone just glancing through the paper would pick up on its negativity - you have to read to the every end to see any words of praise.

I can respect anyone with an informed point of view - but when he makes a huge mistake with fact like saying Sylvie and Jonathan "repeated their Act 3 pas de deux from Manon" - then I feel that the validity of his comment is slightly questionable

   Sorry but I did not see anything particularly wrong with the FT article. Yes it was a bit sour but nothing compared to Anne Sacks many recent reviews of the Royal Ballet. And he is right in that the opera section was not done very well.

Actually I have to defend Clark at this point. It may not be what he actually wrote. The simple fact is that you get told a length to write to, and you stick to it, but the layout of a page often changes, resulting in a sub-editor cutting the copy, and on an edition, subs are often under pressure. It may well be a case of the sub deciding to keep the tone of Clark's piece - it is, after all, an opinion piece - and cramming as much else of the review in that he can. Not to mention that the cardinal rule in editing is cut from the bottom.

The article reads as though it's been edited for space and the original sentence may have been to the effect that they repeated the pas de deux that they had performed to such good effect last year, or something similar. So it's quite likely that it was a bit of bad editing - this things can slip by a sub under pressure - rather than a strange decision by the writer. And it is entirely likely that the sub knows nothing of ballet - I once got a phonecall from a sub asking me what I meant by "pointe"!

Or indeed, Clark may have written more, and when cutting back, forgotten to change the word.
