By her own account, she is known "... as the person who can make the room laugh." She can also make a whole theater laugh.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><a href=../../../interviews/jadam010801.html target=_blank><B>More</B></a>

[img]../../../images/llacarra.gif[/img]<P>And here's one of glamour princess, Lucia Lacarra:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>An Interview with Lucia Lacarra<BR>San Francisco Ballet Principal Dancer<P>By Stuart Sweeney, criticaldance.com<P>San Francisco Ballet has many fine dancers. An illustration of this is that they fielded four top quality casts for <I>Swan Lake</I> when they were last in London. Several of their ballerinas were the talk of the town two years ago, but none more so than the Spanish born Lucia Lacarra. Her suppleness, grace and expressive qualities marked her out as something special. Stuart Sweeney met her at the Royal Opera House after class as she prepared for the Company's second visit.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><a href=../../../interviews/llacarra010812.html target=_blank>More</a>

<B>Me? I'm no wunderkind</B> <P>At 28, British choreographer Christopher Wheeldon has already conquered New York; now he is invading Edinburgh and London.

At 28, he now ranks as one of the US's most courted classical choreographers. Not only has he cornered a major tranche of the freelance market, but he has just been appointed choreographer in residence at NYCB, as well as being signed up for Nicholas Hytner's new Broadway musical, The Sweet Smell of Success. This month Britain will see three of his ballets performed by two companies - San Francisco Ballet in London and NYCB in Edinburgh.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> <P><A HREF="http://www.guardian.co.uk/arts/story/0,3604,537012,00.html" TARGET=_blank><B>more...</B></A>

Thanks you Emma for this beautiful portrait of this dancer I loved so much when he was in POB and I found so good when he was in Paris with SFB. <P>He was bad loved but he has right, he has charism and his stage presence is what it's the more important. I found his Othello absolutely wonderful. You only have to read again my cumments about him so I find him terrific. He has right too, French audience see too technical faults, I the first but we are certainly educated like that.<P>I'm glad he realises this career with SFB as I said several times he made the good choice and if I'm sad for POB, I'm happy for him and happy that SFB has a so magnificent dancer.<P>Did you see he has his own website <A HREF="http://www.vilanoba.com/top.jpg" TARGET=_blank>http://www.vilanoba.com/top.jpg</A> <P><p>[This message has been edited by Cathy (edited August 20, 2001).]

Thank you for your sentiments, Cathy.I did see and digest his web site. He is a charming man and very open and honest. I am only sorry he was dancing so little in London.
