We know that the Royal Ballet is working hard behind the scenes trying to make their September 22nd cinema-cast of Romeo and Juliet available to us hungry balletomanes in the U.S. and other countries. A note on their website states:
Please note: we are awaiting confirmation for screenings in France, the USA and many other countries. Details will be added to the website as soon as we have them.
We hope they are able to work it out. The immediate good news is that the RB is going to livestream a rehearsal of Romeo and Juliet via YouTube and the ROH website on Friday, September 11 at 7.15 pm BST. What the heck time is that in Gotham? We calculate 2:15 pm here in New York but somebody should check our conversion for us.
The RB Insights event will feature Sarah Lamb and Ryoichi Hirano rehearsing the Acts I and III PdD and Alexander Campbell rehearsing Mercutio's solos from Acts I & II. Senior ballet master Christopher Saunders will direct the session.
Thanks RB! We're looking forward to this.
