On the record, at least, her colleagues profess to be unconcerned that Alonso has not designated a successor, raising doubts about how the company may fare once she leaves the scene.

"I'm sure like everything in life it will go on," one of the company's current stars, Barbara García, said by phone. "Yes, it's an uncertain future; we don't know how it will continue. I imagine it will continue."

As for the formidable comandante of Cuban dance, she has in fact announced the age at which she plans to step down from her duties. About 200 years ought to do it, she reckons.

"I love life," Alonso said. "Amo la vida."

Sarah Kaufman reviews the Royal Danish Ballet's Napoli:

For a 170-year-old ballet, “Napoli” is in admirable shape. Hot-tempered men and beautiful women with flamboyant sex appeal fill its first act, surrounded by a seaside setting so Technicolor-rich you can almost feel the heat of the sun. Or maybe that was the heat of the hoopla onstage, as the dancers of the Royal Danish Ballet whipped up an earthy Italian village scene in the production performed this weekend at the Kennedy Center Opera House.

A review of the Australian Ballet by Penelope Broadbent:

http://www.australia...ian-ballet.html

Stephen Baynes, resident choreographer of The Australian Ballet, is often referred to as the “Poet” of the company. As the title of the AB’s latest double bill suggests, it is here in the re-visiting of two of his works, Requiem and Beyond Bach, that he presents his own elegy. The two pieces, though very different in style and mood, are together a reflection and celebration of spirit; of life’s journey – here on earth and afterward, as well as in the origins and basis of classical ballet itself.
