Review of their production of La Trviata at the Edinburgh Festival Theatre in The Scotsman. Is this company touring the UK?

Quote:
TRANSLATING an opera into a ballet isn’t easy. Librettists are hardly known for their brevity, leaving choreographers vast chunks of expositional text to turn into movement. Fortunately, La Traviata has a relatively simple storyline and this four-act ballet made for easy viewing. Indeed, any confusion among the audience stemmed from the bizarre staging of this hit-and-miss show on Saturday.

Are the tables covered untidily with throws, the bedsit divan, lopsided chandelier and tied net curtains a credible setting for fancy Parisian parties and country-house loving?

Oh dear! Not one it would be advisable to bring to London, methinks. For those who would like to know more about the Company, here is the <A HREF="http://www.arteatro.it/arteatro.htm" TARGET=_blank><B> link to their website</B></A><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited May 08, 2002).]
