This is a very intersting subject, Maggie - thank you for posting it. Sometimes when I mention to people - students or otherwise - that the orchestra can't see the dancers for whom they are playing, they are very surprised.<P>It somehow never occurs to them that the musicians cannot see the dancers. The conductor is exactly that - plus a conduit. It is through him that the two art forms connect. I see the conductor also, as being responsbile to the wishes of the composer, and a facilitator for the dancer. The conductor can make all - the composer, musicans, choreographer, and dancer look very, very good - or very, very bad.<P>He is the eyes of the musicians, he is the ears of the dancer.
