Thanks Françoise for the info. Do you think the programme can live up to expectations considering sky-high ticket prices? No disrespect to any one, but M&A will be a complete turn-off for me....... At Covent Garden this summer this ballet will be staged as part of the week-long Sylvie Guillem programme. Do Parisian audience love this work? Personally I would have wanted to see dancers from both camps in one grand ballet - in digested/concise version or something.....

I adore Marguerite and Armand, I love this style of dance, the music. I love Sylvie Guillem in this part more than in the classical ballet, against I prefer Massimo Murru as Armand than Nicolas Le Riche.

Against the opinion abouth this ballet is very shared in Parisian audience, some people adore other dislike very much this kind of ballet. It's a French Tradition to dislike English ballets and English dancers, for me I don't know very good english dancers, but I know I adore the English repertory of Ashton, MacMillan !
