In London I've seen quite a few standing ovations for flamenco, relative to the number of flamenco performances I've seen in total that is. I have a theory that it's partly because with flamenco, the audience can always be assured of getting 'more for their money' if they applaud enough, due to the custom of the spontaneous encore/dancing off. Saying that, I'm sure the audience doesn't always do it with value for money in mind, Rocio Molina definitely deserved her standing ovation this Feb. as she was stunning.

It's becoming more common (and quite good fun) to boo baddies in an affectionate way - eg Hook, Tybalt.

In respect of a standing ovation, I saw a performance at one of the Nureyev seasons at the London Coliseum in 1982. It was my first time at a ballet in London. After the final ballet, Petruchka, the audience were on their feet and the longer he stood there, the wilder the audience got. I suspect it might have been like that at every performance.

I found myself unable not to stand after a wonderful performance of Giselle by BRB in Plymouth. Three of us on the front row stood up to ovate Chi Cao and Nao Sakuma (although I've got to say no-one else did).
