Baryshnikov will dance here in June
By MICHAEL HUEBNER for The Birmingham News (Alabama)

Mikhail Baryshnikov, one of the most esteemed figures in the history of dance, will perform in Birmingham in mid-June in three solo concerts sponsored by Alabama Ballet.

His appearances at the Alys Stephens Center's Sirote Theatre are part of an 11-city tour that will benefit Alabama Ballet and help to establish the Baryshnikov Center for Dance in New York, which is scheduled to open next year. Birmingham is the only Southeastern city on the tour, and Baryshnikov's first appearance here since 1988.

The decision to hold the performances in the 341-seat space was made because of a request by Baryshnikov for venues of 500 seats or less in each city.

18 swan maidens push `Lake' over the top for Alabama Ballet
By MICHAEL HUEBNER for The Birmingham News (Alabama)

Speculating about how far the Alabama Ballet has progressed may be a thing of the past. With "Swan Lake," they've arrived.

This is as fine a production as you'll see on any stage in the nation. Combine a disciplined corps, the Alabama Symphony in fine form and principals to die for, and the result is first-rate dance.

Calling it classic would be an understatement. A near replica of the standard routines handed down from Petipa and Ivanov's 1895 version, it offers little that's new or innovative. What raises the balletic bar are the crispness of its execution and engrossing drama of its characterizations.

Tatiana Ledovskikh was wondrous to behold in her guises of queen of the swans, the human Odette and her dark-clad impostor, Odile.
