Judith Mackrell discusses the concept of cooperation among ballet companies:

One of the key issues facing British ballet is the difficulty of building audiences for new choreography, especially in the smaller towns and cities, where 19th-century classics remain the default option at the box office. Would it be impossible for companies such as ENB, the Royal and Birmingham Royal Ballet to address this by collaborating on limited tours of small-scale, contemporary ballets?

Sara Bauknecht of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on preparations for Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre's Giselle:

For every ballerina, there's a coveted role that epitomizes what it means to be a dancer.
Maybe it's the dual good-versus-evil persona of Odette/Odile in "Swan Lake." Or the love-struck Juliet from William Shakespeare's tragic drama.
For Marianna Tcherkassky, it was Giselle. As the daughter of a dancer and an opera singer, she was exposed to the part early on.
