city ballet in london

I cannot believe that New York City Ballet is in London, for the first time since 1983(!) and there are empty seats at the Coliseum. On the other hand the Royal Ballet sells out regularly at Covent Garden, a much bigger house. Perhaps it's because Royal Ballet and City Ballet are two very different companies, and if you're a devoted fan of one, chances are you're probably not going to be that passionate about the other, for purely aesthetic reasons. Plus people usually root for their home team, I guess. But, still, I seriously think many balletomanes are missing out here. The good news, though, is that with so many unsold seats, they're selling lots of stand-bys, so you can get a really good seat at an incredibly good price. So, what are you waiting for :-)
