rg, don't ever think of not sharing these treasures with us!!
I think you should continue to post them (please, please).
I've just tested New Member, Senior Member, and Member using IE (7.0): the photos are visible and by clicking on them, they enlarge.
People who are not logged in and in the Registration Completed group will see the photos displayed as a file name/link and will get the "Permissions denied" error message.
For me, the pics work now. It's exactly how you said; photos are visible and then enlarge by clicking. Before, I got the same file name link and error message but everything is fine now.

in the CENDRILLON instance - and this is the variation that now figures in most performances of this number, not the anton simon one nureyev interpolated from the version of the pas de deux he danced for his graduation excercise (opposite sizova) - i wonder if the current 'outlines' of this as it's come down to use through soviet ballet and its CORSAIRE stagings might be close to what petipa arranged in the 1893 production (w/ additional choreography by cecchetti and ivanov) for legnani when she made her 'splash' as his cinderella.
in any case, here's how the munich house program identifies its version of the choreography.

Does anyone know where the Ali character originated? Beaumont's complete book of ballets includes the scenario for le corsaire, but no character named Ali is mentioned. My ballet teacher told me the character was called the Rhab long ago in Russia, but didnt know anything else. I have yet to encounter a place in the program that explains this part of the history of teh ballet, but maybe I havnt seen it yet.

eventually, in 1955, when pytor gusev staged CORSAIRE for leningrad's maly theater he dubbed the 'slave' of the pas Ali.
so a nameless third character dancing as a nameless 'slave' ended up w/ a name.
this is would seem to be the 'story so far...'
