Image <BR> <BR>Universal Ballet in 'Don Q'<P> <BR>Ismene Brown on the Universal Ballet and the Moonies link. Ms Brown is convinced about the quality, but perhaps not entirely on the use of the Company as a pathfinder for the Group. <P>'At what price? Vinogradov says that none is paid to the Unification Church; there is no recruitment in the company or school, only Julia is a member, and he is still Christian Orthodox. Art, he says, is the only priority. And maybe it is.'<P><A HREF="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=qXRsJps9&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/00/10/26/btmoon26.html" TARGET=_blank><B>now read on</B></A><P><BR><A HREF="http://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/0,,23223,00.html" TARGET=_blank><B>Debra Craine also reports.</B></A> <P><BR>The Company begin their short season on Oct. 30th.<P>We had an earlier thread on this theme:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/000090.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/000090.html</A> <P><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited October 26, 2000).]

Kitri, Lali Kandalaki from Tbilisi, Georgia danced with spirit and attacked the Grand pdd with technical skill. The corps and ensemble sections were well drilled. <P>Nevertheless, there was a general lack of charismatic dancing and role playing. I suspect that the work needs astonishingly good dancing to make it come alive.<P>The company is sufferring from the over-hyped pre-publicity which compared them with the Kirov. <P><BR><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited November 02, 2000).]

The FT Crisp Universal Ballet review says at the bottom:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Clement Crisp Sponsored by Skoda and The Royal Bank of Scotland.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>I rather like the idea of the doyen of UK critics driving round in a very basic Skoda wearing a kilt.<P>However, they mean that the Sadler's Wells Autumn season is sponsored by etc. It's good of the FT to mention this, but a quick word with the website boys would be in order.<BR>
