Click to <A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum13/HTML/000440.html" TARGET=_blank><B>Press Releases</B></A> for news on upcoming events at the Linbury Studio.<P>Ticket prices start at £5 for concessions to see some excellent events involving members of the Royal Ballet up closer than normal!<P>My choice would be the "From Petipa to Nacho Duato" evening which explores the evolution of ballet choreography, and Javier de Frutos' "The Misty Frontier."<P>For the Misty Frontier, I would say that even if it turns out to be the kind of work you wouldn't pay to see in the main House, it didn't cost you much to experiment and to find that out...plus you have a little more knowledge up your sleeve to comment in an informed way on the future of dance!<p>[This message has been edited by Emma Pegler (edited October 28, 2001).]

Javier de Frutos will be online to discuss "The Misty Frontier" on 23 November. For details to submit questions plus buying tickets for the performances, see londondance Press Release:<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>ADI choreographer Javier De Frutos is the first artist at the Royal Opera House to go online with londondance.com, on Friday 23 November at 1pm. <P>In 1945 Tennessee Williams was introduced to a social circle in Mexico of influential artists that included George Balanchine.

Deborah Bull, director of the Artists' Development Initiative, writes:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Dear ADI Mailing List Member <P>I'm writing to let you know about a unique series of performances as the Royal Opera House's Artists' Development Initiative makes its second visit to the Linbury Studio Theatre.<P>Alongside its collaborations with independent artists and small scale companies, through initiatives like the annual Back Garden Project, part of ADI's work is to provide creative opportunities for dancers of The Royal Ballet outside their regular schedule. Last year's major project, Duo:logue, saw the dancers integrating with contemporary dance company, Random, to perform in new work by Wayne McGregor. This year, a second group of dancers has been working with award-winning choreographer Javier De Frutos, best known for his highly challenging dance pieces, as seen in the profile of de Frutos for ITV's The South Bank Show. In The Misty Frontier, de Frutos will be challenging his regular audiences once again: this time, by presenting ballet dancers on pointe.<P>The Misty Frontier takes as its starting point a meeting between the novelist Tennessee Williams and the choreographer George Balanchine, in Mexico in 1945, and the electric atmosphere that must have ensued. It will feature six dancers, including First Soloist Marianela Nunez, First Artists Emily Low, Nicole Ransley and Martin Harvey, and Artists Ernst Meissner and Jose Maria Tirado.  Lighting design is by Michael Mannion.<P>The Misty Frontier  will be presented for three performances only, on November 30th at 8pm and on December 2nd at 5pm and 8pm. Tickets are £10 & £8 (£5 concessions) and are available from the ROH Box Office on 020 7304 4000.<P>+++STOP PRESS+++  There are still a few tickets left for the next event in the ROH Education Department's 'Introduction to Ballet' series, on Friday 16 November at 7.30pm in the Linbury Studio Theatre.  This particular evening will focus on how Royal Ballet dancers use classical ballet technique within the contrasting styles of pure classicism and some of the new and dynamic Royal Ballet repertoire, from Petipa to Wayne McGregor.  Participants in discussion and demonstration include Deborah Bull, John Drummond,  Tom Sapsford and Jenny Tattersall.  <P>If you do not wish to receive information in this way, please contact Philippa Rooke, ADI Administrator, by email or at the address below.<P>Best wishes, <P><BR> <BR>Deborah Bull <BR>Director, ROH Artists' Development Initiative <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR>

Thanks for this Emma - I've booked a ticket for the 'Introduction to ballet' seminar. There are about 100 seats left at £11 with a student concessionary rate of £5. Ring the box office on 020 7304 4000, but be prepared for a wait of 15-20 minutes.<p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited November 14, 2001).]
