Here's the link to Marie-Claude Pietragalla's personal site -<P> <A HREF="http://www.pietragalla.com/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.pietragalla.com/</A> <P>I think it is one of the best dancer sites on the net. There are also a lot of great photos by Pascal Elliott Bourasseau & others. As well as music from her choreography to listen to! Very professional.<P>Maggie should love it for inspiration for her sculptures!<BR>Intuvial should be plainly inspired by this woman!<BR>Azlan & Stuart will appreciate her beauty!<BR>I'm sure Jennifer will find it very interesting!<BR>And Grace will just love it!<P><BR>[This message has been edited by Michael Montgomery (edited May 10, 2000).]<p>[This message has been edited by Michael Montgomery (edited May 10, 2000).]

I have put off reporting this for a while, for several reasons, of which I shall mention two.<P>The performance of Pietragalla was excellent, but it was the worst version of Giselle I have ever witnessed...<P>and, I am submitting the review to my editor, so hopefully, you will have to wait to read all about it there.<p>[This message has been edited by Michael Montgomery (edited May 26, 2000).]

Hi Kevin!<BR>I wouldn't hold your breath.<BR>I've heard there's already talk of replacing it with the traditional version as soon as is legal. Which could be a good idea for the "under construction" repertoire of the company.(Petit took everything with him when he left).<P><p>[This message has been edited by Michael Montgomery (edited May 26, 2000).]
