  1. Is there an official announcement on ROH website? I can't find anything.
    Angela posted this tour on her website some months ago.

  2. not yet as far as I saw... It has been publisged on the magazine "About the House" which is given to the ROH's friends. No exact dates were specified for the performances.

  3. Here you have the dates for Traviata. They should match Manon.

  4. Yes, thanks! I got them and I had just updated the post. Now it remains to know the exact dates for Manon. When available I will update also the 2010-2011 Schedule for Anna.

  5. By the way, that Manon in London on July 10 or 11 is part of my summer cultural travelling.
