Alice Bain in the Guardian is pleased, with a couple of caveats, with Scottish Ballet's 'Aladdin'

About 8 weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of interviewing Robert Cohan, the choreographer of Aladdin' for the December edition of 'Dance Europe'. At that time the casting of Aladdin had not been finalised, but Cohan was very keen to get someone called Jesus. From Hutera's review, Cohan got his man and he has come up trumps.

'More, darling, more!' <P>'Sue Jones, once a soloist with Scottish Ballet, has since gone on to a second life as an Oxford don. As the company prepares to perform in Belfast, she argues that this ‘English import’ has managed to survive so well mainly because its founder insisted on a unique style.'<BR> <A HREF="" TARGET=_blank></A> <P>

Nice interview, Stuart! I'm amazed you got so much in at Gatwick. That's not a fun airport to interview in.

This interview dates from nearly three years ago, but some of our Korean members are keen to read about Jesus Pastor, who has been noticed in his UK performances, but seems to have pulled out all the stops for the AMP "Swan lake" in Korea:

Dance: Jesus Pastor
From the Sunday Herald

JESUS PASTOR gives a languorous sigh and murmurs softly: "Ah, love," giving the word several more syllables than is strictly necessary in his fractured, Hispanic-slurred English. Then, with a flash of impossibly white teeth and a smouldering glance from eyes the colour of bitter chocolate, he announces: "I love to love I am so romantic. Very, very, very passionate." To complete the point, he gracefully mimes a fast-beating heart under his Technicolor baseball shirt.

Scottish Ballet's newest acquisition, Pastor is a darkly handsome dancer with the charisma of a rock star and, if he lives up to the hype, the prospect of a similar career curve - English National Ballet were also keen to land the 24-year-old, and Scottish Ballet's artistic director Robert North sees a glittering future for the young Spaniard.
