According to this review, Helgi Tomasson's return to NYCB as a choreographer was triumphant and emotional. His new work, "Prism," received an enthusiastic ovation:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2000/05/05/DD86557.DTL&type=performance" TARGET=_blank>http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=<BR>/chronicle/archive/2000/05/05/DD86557.DTL&type=performance</A> <P><BR>And here is an earlier article about Tomasson's homecoming:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2000/04/30/PK71303.DTL" TARGET=_blank>http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2000/04/30/PK71303.D TL</A> <P>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited May 12, 2000).]<p>[This message has been edited by Admin (edited April 05, 2002).]

<BR>Deborah Jowitt finds precious jewels in NYCB's Diamond series, including the new Tomasson work 'Prism'. <P>I would ask if anyone has Maria Kowroski's phone number, but I wouldn't want people to get the right impression about me.<P> <A HREF="http://www.villagevoice.com/issues/0019/jowitt.shtml" TARGET=_blank>http://www.villagevoice.com/issues/0019/jowitt.shtml</A> <P>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited May 12, 2000).]<p>[This message has been edited by Admin (edited April 05, 2002).]

Just noticed that SFB will be doing "Prism" here in SF next season! I'm excited!

Helgi Tomasson's Prism as well as other Diamond Project new works presented by New York City Ballet are reviewed this week by Tobi Tobias in New York Magazine. Prism seems to be the best of the whole lot of forgettable new works! (Trisha Brown's season is also reviewed.)<BR> <A HREF="http://www.newyorkmag.com/page.cfm?page_id=3234" TARGET=_blank>http://www.newyorkmag.com/page.cfm?page_id=3234</A>

Ooh, Kevin, did you think "Prism" was forgettable too?<P>I must say that of all of Helgi's works, I've only liked one or two.

Azlan, I meant based on what I've read, not my view, as after all I haven't seen "Prism" or any other new Diamond Project ballet in New York this season. Miss Tobias concluded in her review that none of the Diamond Project works deserves a place in NYCB's repertory.<BR><p>[This message has been edited by Kevin Ng (edited May 25, 2000).]

Azlan<P>Do you like Two Bits? David Palmer and Evelyn Cisneros performed it here in Miami last season and I quite enjoyed it ( I think it was only a section, actually).<P>I REALLY like Val's stuff that I've seen.<P>

Thanks for the clarification, Kevin.<P>Shag, the performance of "Two Bits" that really sizzled here were with Vanessa Zahorian and Guennadi Nedviguine. Yes, I do remember liking it but, for the life of me, I can't remember much about it. Does that mean it was forgettable?
