Dear members of the GB-Russia Society
We have just one single complimentary seat available for the Bolshoi Ballet Company’s Dress Rehearsal of “The Flames of Paris” on Friday August 5th.
If any member would like that place please contact me as soon as possible.
Phone me on: 01903 210611 or email me at: [removed].
We ask each person attending to bring £3 in the exact cash towards a present for MR. and Mrs. V. Hochhauser CBE, who have donated the tickets to us. If you are awarded the seat you will neesd to be inside the Royal Opera House (probably via the Linbury Entrance) at 1.30 p.m. the performance is likely to start at 2.00 p.m. There will also be a pre performance lunch at “La Ballerina” restaurant, 7/8 Bow Street at 12 noon. The cost of a two course lunch plus a hot beverage is £11.50 inclusive of service. If you want to come to the lunch you will be sent the choice of menu. Payment is by Cash only to our Hon. Treasurer Mrs. Anna Bennigsen. Any wine is extra, and payable to “La Ballerina” staff.
Please note that due to building works at the ROH we were not able to go to the Dress Rehearsal of “Le Corsaire” on Thursday August 11th, but the authorities at the ROH have switched us to the Dress Rehearsal of “The Flames of Paris” on Friday August 5th. This ballet was premiered at Covent Garden by the Bolshoi in 2013, and was a great success.
