Brian McMaster should be commended. He's done a wonderful job, it seems, organizing this festival, and focusing on larger,contemporary works seldom seen in the UK. <BR>There should be more people around the world interested in doing what he does. I don't think you hear the word impresario much these days.

You're right Kevin, but I've been away so much the past 2 months and go away again shortly that I need this time to catch up. In any case I think it would be very difficult to get accommadation in Edinburgh at this stage.<P>And you're right too, Maggie. It is an astonishly rich mix of dance. London has an extraordinary selection, but as McMaster describes, he deliberately goes for companies that don't come to London. The first year that Sadler's Wells was open, thay must have been rather worried with PNB, NDT and others visiting the new venue. However, money for Sadler's Wells has gone back to the releatively modest levels of old and with one or two exceptions, we now tend to see the very good rather than the most sought after world companies. <P> <P><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited August 01, 2000).]
