Hairy Divas in Hoary Classics

The funniest aspect of its adagio from "Spartacus," performed on Wednesday night at Symphony Space, was the clinging trick-partnering that is a staple of the Soviet repertory from which this ballet comes.

It's common knowledge too that their ever expanding technical accomplishments as both ballerinas and cavaliers have become formidable (pronounce it the French way) and that they need to watch out for succumbing to mugging and pratfalls instead of letting their performance rest on wit, imagination, and a prodigal suspension of disbelief.
