Thanks, miliosr.It really helps to have the story behind that ghastly Swan Lake rehearsal. For example: Who are the dancers? Why is this last-minute rehearsal so crucial? What happens to the shy and rather stoic young woman dancing Odile?

Here is an article from The Independent that explains things.

Derek Deane is the director. He's the one who says, among other sensitive bits of criticism:

Unbelievable. Unbelievable. And I have to watch it. .... Oh, so fed up.

Forgot to mention . . .

Max Westwell (Romeo in the second clip) looks a lot like a young Billy Crudup!
