You'll notice that except for Houston Ballet, the article was more about dance that was performed in Houston rather than dance that was created in Houston (and Deborah Jowitt, I believe, once asked in print why a British ballet troupe was based in Houston.<P>There's a lot of good dance in Houston, but, historically, you wouldn't know it from reading the Chronicle. It's getting somewhat better, but it's still not good.<P>------------------<BR>=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=<BR>Jeffrey E.

Re. the Mark Morris, 'L'Allegro etc.', it dates from 1988, not 1980 as it says in the article. This may sound like pedantry ('As if!' I can hear you all saying ironically). However, his company only had its first premiere in 1980, so it is useful to place 'L'Allegro...' as a mature work from his Brussels residence. <P>That's my story and I'm sticking to it.<P>I am looking forward to seeing Houston's 'Cleopatra' here in April. It's bound to get a lot of publicity, partly because of the nature of the production and partly because Lauren Anderson will be the first black ballerina we will have seen here for a long time. Perhaps, since the last time Dance Theatre of Harlem were here about 10 years ago. Can any London dance fans think of another example? It could prove a valuable example for ballet companies and potential dancers from our large Afro-Caribbean community. <p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited January 01, 2001).]
