I would be exceptionally gratefully to anyone in Japan who is able to post a comment, personal view or photograph of these performances.

Many thanks.

A review of this July performance at Tokyo with the Inoue Ballet Foundation has just appeared in the October 2007 of Dance Europe (London), by Yuki Nagano, in English.

"A performance of note in Tokyo, in late July, was the first Prince Désiré by Emmanuel Thibault.

"(...) It is thoroughly understandable that this quiet danseur noble decided to seize the opportunity, and the result was triumphant.

"(...) the Vision Scene provided a suitable platform for Thibault's typical romanticism. His longing for Aurora is intensely expressed by his back, with an ecstatic yet academically polished arch, as well as arms yearningly stretched towards the ethereal princess (...) . Although the small stage did not allow him to tour across with full-scale leaps, each movement of his limbs and head from one position to another is smooth, precise and rich in subtleties.

"In the final act, in contrast, he has proven his quality as a classicist. When he puts his feet in a perfect fifth position and opens his arms upwards, it is an act of realising the idea of proportion and harmony within the living human body. It is quite rare that a dancer can radiate this dignity without sacrificing a bit of his innate freshness and calm."
