Lewis Segal makes a strong case that the strong performances by the Kirov and the Bolshoi this summer prove that the Russians rule ballet. Read his <A HREF="http://www.calendarlive.com/theater/20000729/t000071173.html" TARGET=_blank>LA Times article</A>.<P>

In the second half of <A HREF="http://www.villagevoice.com/issues/0031/jowitt.shtml" TARGET=_blank>her Village Voice article</A>, Deborah Jowitt claims, "The Bolshoi has weathered artistic stagnation and more than five years of debilitating administrative hassles. Since the full company's last visit in 1996, the level of both dancing and artistic direction has risen magnificently."

And here is what Jennie Schulman of backstage.com thinks: "How clever of the Bolshoi Ballet to open its repertory program at the New York State Theater on July 19 with "Appian Way," from Spartacus. What an ideal vehicle with which to display the heroic stature of the company's males! Since 1959 when the Bolshoi first appeared on these shores, ballet goers-and we don't mean merely rabid balletomanes-became aware of the superior training and athleticism of that company's danseurs."<P><BR><A HREF="http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/bpibs/20000801/en/_b_h1_dance_diary_bolshoi_ballet_in_full_bloom_h1_b__1.html" TARGET=_blank>Read on</A>.
