As an alternative to the Simone Clarke story I thought readers might like to read other reviews of the ENB's Giselle.

The article about ENB's Giselle performed in Barcelona last September with Tamara Rojo and José Manuel Carreño as guests has been published today:

To the main page (very nice presentation):

Thanks, Leonid, that's very useful.

Free thought, speech and association are vital issues in society, but in Ballet Talk's corner of the world, it's all about the dancing.

Thanks also, leonid. And, CarolinaM, the photos from fotoscena are wonderful. I hope everyone will check them out, even if you can't follow the Spanish-language text. The performance shots tell you so much about the stage personalities of Rojo and Carreno, and the shot of the curtain call -- taken from the wings -- is marvellous. :)
