'Strauss in motion: Dutch master Rudi van Dantzig brings `Four Last Songs' to Boston Ballet,' by Theodore Bale <P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Van Dantzig's ``Four Last Songs'' will be presented in Boston Ballet's upcoming program of modern ballets, ``Celebration of Dance,'' which opens at the Wang Theatre on Thursday. The program also includes George Balanchine's 1947 ``Theme and Variations'' and Jerome Robbins' 1945 ``Interplay.''<P>This is the first time the renowned choreographer has worked with Boston Ballet. Artistic Director Anna-Marie Holmes said she has been eager to bring van Dantzig to Boston, since their professional relationship and friendship goes back many years.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>With the piece there is a rehearsal photo with a very thin dancer in red in the foreground and I have to say that I heard alarm bells ringing. Does anyone know the Company well enough to say whether this is a typical look? <BR> <A HREF="http://www.bostonherald.com/entertainment/arts_culture/danc02272001.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.bostonherald.com/entertainment/arts_culture/danc02272001.htm</A>

stuart, i know this girl. her name is larissa ponomarenko and i have known her for over ten years. she has always looked this way and has always been very healthy and eaten well, so i can only say this is normal for her. she does her rehearsals full out and has never looked weak. it is an atypical look but it seems to be hers, as it was before she came to boston. <p>[This message has been edited by pmeja (edited March 02, 2001).]

In this review Theodore Bale thought "Four Last Songs" was the highlight of the program:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>`Celebration' offers innovation</B><P>Theodore Bale, Boston Herald<P>Boston Ballet's splendid program last night at the Wang Theatre was called ``Celebration of Dance,'' though it might have been more aptly titled, ``Celebration of Neo-classical Ballet.'' All three works on the program used classical technique in a fresh, innovative manner, and the company looked stunning and adroit in each.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.bostonherald.com/entertainment/arts_culture/ball03022001.htm" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>

From the Boston Globe:<P><center><B>BOSTON BALLET BRINGS VERVE TO 'CELEBRATION'</B></center><P><center> Image </center><P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Boston Ballet's ''Celebration of Dance'' has an ambitious mission: It's a paean to movement itself - its exuberance, its powers of expression, its purity of form.<P><BR>The program, which consists of three dances (namely, Jerome Robbins's ''Interplay,'' Rudi van Dantzig's ''Four Last Songs,'' and George Balanchine's ''Theme and Variations'') covers significant ground, ranging in style from jazzy to languid to elegant. You can't do much better than Robbins and Balanchine on the same bill.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><A HREF="http://www.boston.com/dailyglobe2/062/living/Boston_Ballet_brings_verve_to_Celebration_+.shtml" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE...</B></A><P><BR>
