Image<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>A Feminist Carmen More Political Than Seductive<P>VALERIE GLADSTONE, NY Times<P>To offer what he considers a truer picture, Mr. Távora, 68, created the dance-drama "Carmen" for La Cuadra de Sevilla, his 48- member ensemble of dancers and musicians, which will present the American premiere of the work at the City Center in New York for two weeks beginning Sept. 12. The company takes part of its name from the Spanish word for stable, the original use of its headquarters. It last appeared in New York in 1990, in Gabriel García Márquez's "Chronicle of a Death Foretold." (A version with a male hero entitled "The Car Man" by the English director and choreographer Matthew Bourne had its premiere in London last fall and is now on tour in America.)<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><a href=http://www.nytimes.com/2001/09/02/arts/dance/02GLAD.html target=_blank>More</a>

From the Los Angeles Times:<P><B>Carmen's Story, Told Through Flamenco<BR> Arts * A Spanish troupe of dancers and musicians retells the story of a famously liberated lady.</B> <BR> <BR>By SARA SILVER, ASSOCIATED PRESS<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>NEW YORK -- This Carmen is driven by politics as well as passion. She fights for the rights of women and her fellow cigarette workers. She sings Andalusian folk songs and dances with a horse. And she expresses herself best, not through voice, but through flamenco.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><A HREF="http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/printedition/calendar/la-000073495sep12.story?coll=la%2Dheadlines%2Dcalendar" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE...</B></A>

A free gift:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>For Love of a Horse<P>Deborah Jowitt, Village Voice<P>The horror that descended on our city curtailed an annual dance pleasure: the prestigious free "Evening Stars" series at the World Trade Center Plaza. But those seeking respite from trauma could find it at City Center, where La Cuadra de Sevilla opened Salvador Távora's Carmen last Wednesday as scheduled, offering its first performance free as a gift to the city.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><a href=http://www.villagevoice.com/issues/0138/jowitt.php target=_blank>More</a>
