Dance and the Olympics, by Judith Mackrell:

http://www.guardian....s?newsfeed=true

I know we're being taken over by the Olympic spirit, but I hadn't realised the extent to which even dance has succumbed, until I looked closely at this summer's diary. Almost everything I'm due to see over the next two months, whether part of the official Cultural Olympiad or not, seems hellbent on breaking records for size or scale.

PNB is reviewed in Coppelia:

It’s hard to say what is the most delectable part of Pacific Northwest Ballet’s production of Coppélia (through June 10 at McCaw Hall; tickets): the sets, the costumes (both by Roberta Guidi di Bagno for the 2010 production here) or the music–or of course the dancing.

The gala, to be held at Lincoln Center on Sept. 20, will feature a new ballet set to selections from Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin” and a performance of George Balanchine’s “Rubies” as a tribute to the signature use of red by the designer simply known as Valentino....

Ismene Brown reviews the Royal Ballet:

http://www.theartsde...as-royal-ballet

As Mrs Thatcher used to say, don’t bring me problems, bring me solutions. Solutions have been flung with a will at the problem ballet of Kenneth MacMillan’s last years, his orientalist fairytale The Prince of the Pagodas - the Royal Ballet’s retiring director Monica Mason revived it last night as one of her last presentations, determined that a new generation should have the chance to love it.
