From Judith Mackrell's review this sounds like a clash of the egos - Deane and Kumakawa. I was not pleased to hear that Viviana Durante did not get much attention from Kumakawa.

Mackrell is a good judge and it seems that Kumakawa, for all his talent, may be going down a Joachim Cortez/Michael Flatley route. Perhaps he really needed the firm hand of Monica Mason and others to keep his feet on the ground, so to speak.

But Clement Crisp enjoys the dancing of Durante and Kumakawa, although he too has problems with the production. He loves the music very much.<P> <A HREF="http://globalarchive.ft.com/globalarchive/articles.html?id=001221001131&query=clement+crisp" TARGET=_blank>http://globalarchive.ft.com/globalarchive/articles.<BR>html?id=001221001131&query=clement+crisp</A> <p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited December 24, 2000).]

'What a duff Plum - Derek Deane's Nutcracker has gone trendy, complete with mobile phone.' Jann Parry on 'The Nutcracker' by English National Ballet. I'm pleased that 'Deane as Drosselmeyer has toned down the child molester implications of the role.'<P> <A HREF="http://www.observer.co.uk/review/story/0,6903,415230,00.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.observer.co.uk/review/story/0,6903,415230,00.html</A>

'A Nutcracker cracked in half - and I know which half I prefer.' Unlike most of her coleagues, Ismene Brown prefers the first Act to the second in ENB's 'Nutcracker'.<P> <A HREF="Http://www.telegraph.co.uk/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=VkmPkV1x&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/00/12/27/btnut27.html" TARGET=_blank>Http://www.telegraph.co.uk/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=<BR>VkmPkV1x&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/00/12/27/btnut27.html</A> <p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited December 27, 2000).]
