<BR>'Tutoring the Antony Tudor Style For the Washington Ballet, some Rigorous Lessons in Restraint,' by Sarah Kaufman for The Washington Post.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The company is rehearsing Tudor's difficult, anxious story of sexual repression, "Pillar of Fire," for its performances at the Kennedy Center Eisenhower Theater Wednesday through next Sunday. The 30-minute "Pillar" forms the centerpiece of a brave program, titled "American Icons" for its focus on three men who defined dance in this country. Alongside the Tudor will be George Balanchine's bright, crisp "Concerto Barocco" and his virtuosic "Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux," and Paul Taylor's freewheeling, skid-across-the-stage "Esplanade."<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR> <BR> <A HREF="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A49285-2001Mar23.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A49285-2001Mar23.html</A> <P> <p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited March 25, 2001).]

A mixed, philsophical review from Sarah Kaufman:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Washington Ballet, Raising the Barre</B><P>Sarah Kaufman, Washington Post<P>The Washington Ballet gave itself a mountain to climb last night at the Kennedy Center's Eisenhower Theater, performing four ballets by three giants of 20th-century dance. And by gum if the dancers weren't going to scramble and claw their way to the top. They just about made it, too.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A15202-2001Mar30.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>
