Image <P>Clive Barnes is in St. Petersburg doing the tourist trail. Unfortunately, it includes some not very impressive ballet.<P> <A HREF="http://www.nypost.com/07122000/entertainment/7636.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.nypost.com/07122000/entertainment/7636.htm</A>

I think Clive Barnes should have flown instead to London last month to watch the Kirov at Covent Garden. Or maybe he will attend the next Kirov season there in August.<P>London is so lucky to get 2 Kirov seasons! A French friend told me that the Kirov hasn't toured Paris for nearly 10 years.

Like Kevin, I was left scratching my head about why Mr. Barnes (one of "les eminences grises" of dance criticism) would take off on a tourist package junket to St. Petersburg to review a couple of catchall productions with so much other dynamic activity scheduled in Europe over the past six weeks or so. What he found is unsurprising, but really....

Very odd. Perhaps Mr. Barnes was offered a free junket?

Makes sense to me, Aurora (the junket, that is).
