Sounds like a must-see:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Phaedra's fall</B><P>Renowned choreographer's ballet explores the tragic consequences of passion<P>ANITA AMIRREZVANI, San Jose Mercury News<P>Passion is always celebrated in story and song, yet passion is a dangerous thing. The ancient Greeks knew it could be powerful enough to destroy a human being, a family or even a community. But chances are good that we will act on it anyway.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www0.mercurycenter.com/premium/arts/docs/phaedra21.htm" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>

Octavio Roca is honest with his observations:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Ballet San Jose Shows Two Faces<BR>Comedy, tragedy on double bill</B><P>Octavio Roca, SF Chronicle<P>Tragedy and comedy mingled side by side at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday night. An ambitious double bill of Flemming Flindt's "Phaedra" and Leonide Massine's "Gaite Parisienne" showed different sides of Ballet San Jose Silicon Valley, with often impressive dancing.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><B><A HREF="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2001/02/24/DD209381.DTL" TARGET=_blank>More</A></B>

Anita Amirrezvani has mixed impressions too:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>`Phaedra' ballet delves into mind's dark side</B><P>Anita Amirrezvani, San Jose Mercury News<P>``Phaedra,'' the spicy story of lust, shame and murder, is a wonderful subject for dance. Ballet San Jose's production of the ancient drama, which premiered Thursday at the Center for Performing Arts in San Jose, makes a strong visual statement even though it wobbles in conveying the story's emotional power.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www0.mercurycenter.com/premium/arts/docs/balletsj24.htm" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>

A rave:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Love, lust and incest at ballet</B><P>Joelle M.
