Certainly, her London debut as Aurora in the Kirov's Sleeping Beauty on Monday night was the most dramatic, the most vivid interpretation of this most hallowed of roles that I have seen in the half-century in which I have been privileged to watch almost every great Aurora. Asylmuratova's Aurora is a young woman radiantly happy, to whom everything and everyone on stage is of interest. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Here are the full articles:<P><BR><A HREF="http://www.the-times.co.uk/news/pages/tim/00/08/11/timartdan01001.html" TARGET=_blank>Debra Craine’s review</A><P><A HREF="http://timeoff.ft.com/ft/gx.cgi/ftc?pagename=View&c=Article&cid=FT37NNNPQBC&live=true&tagid=ZZZFXM1ZXZB" TARGET=_blank>Clement Crisp’s review</A><BR>
