Norwegian National Ballet are in London for the first time in a very long while. Sadler's Wells was full for the opening night, which is remarkable given the Company's virtually unknown status. I enjoyed the evening, but Michael Corder's reading is rather a fairy story version and doesn't have the emotional punch of the MacMillan version. <P>Nevertheless, the two Principals danced well and the ensemble work was well drilled. NNB have the misfortune of following almost immediately after SFB. It is noteworthy that, whereas SFB gave us 3 programmes including Swan Lake with 4 different casts, NNB with one performance less, are just doing R&J and with two casts. Still, the worst thing is to overreach one's capabilities. Here are a couple of contrasted reviews.<BR> <A HREF="http://www.newsunlimited.co.uk/reviews/story/0,3604,104670,00.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.newsunlimited.co.uk/reviews/story/0,3604,104670,00.html</A> <P> <A HREF="http://www.the-times.co.uk/news/pages/tim/99/11/18/timartdan02001.html?1376249" TARGET=_blank>http://www.the-times.co.uk/news/pages/tim/99/11/18/timartdan02001.html?1376249</A>

Stuart, how big is NNB? Is it mostly Norwegian in composition?<P>I think SFB's programming with multiple programs and casts is not normal. It creates such a logistical nightmare to have so many people and so many works.
