Baryshnikov delays shows
The Orange County Register

Mikhail Baryshnikov has postponed his upcoming solo performances at UCLA because of a knee injury, UCLA Live announced Wednesday. The dancer was to appear at Freud Playhouse Oct. 8-11 and was to make a personal appearance at the opening-night reception. The performances have been rescheduled for March 2, 4-7, 2004, at the same theater.

A statement from the Baryshnikov Dance Foundation said the dancer suffered a knee injury over the weekend while rehearsing his scheduled program of contemporary dances. The injury will require surgery, but the statement quoted his physician as saying, "I have every expectation ... that his recovery will be swift and complete."

Arts Briefing

By LAWRENCE VAN GELDER
The New York Times

TOUR CANCELED Mikhail Baryshnikov, left, has canceled his fall international tour after injuring his knee during rehearsals, requiring an emergency operation. The tour was to have begun today in Burlington, Vt., and ended on Nov. 3 in Madrid. Through a spokesman, Mr. Baryshnikov said: "I feel devastated to have to withdraw from the tour on such short notice. I would convey to all the presenters and members of my audience my personal promise to fulfill my obligations to each and every one of them and to come back as strong as ever." The schedule included performances in solo works on Friday and Saturday in Holyoke, Mass., in the gala opening of the Massachusetts International Festival of the Arts, continuing through Oct. 19. Mr. Baryshnikov and his management have guaranteed to appear in Holyoke between Jan. 21 and March 21 of 2004.

Wow, Baryshikov is dancing everywhere from Nebraska to Germany, and everywhere in between! YAY....! It sounds like he has his fingers in many pies, including his new arts center in NY, which apparently contains performing space for new and upcoming choreographers. This is all good news. :D

For Mikhail Baryshnikov, acting is always a stretch

by KEN ROSS
The Newhouse News Service
January 18, 2004

Living legend Mikhail Baryshnikov answered all but one question during a recent interview.

Why does he still dance?

Does he plan to retire soon?

Why did he switch from classic ballet to modern dance years ago?

All of these questions were no problem for the man Time magazine has christened "the greatest living dancer."

But one question was off- limits: Does Aleksandr Petrovsky marry Carrie Bradshaw?

If those names mean nothing to you, you obviously do not watch "Sex and the City," the frothy, fashion-conscious HBO television series about four women in New York City.

From Theodore Bale in the Boston Herald:

High-flying 'Solos' proves Misha still thrives at 55

Friday night in Holyoke, dance legend Mikhail Baryshnikov gave a program of contemporary solos in the most ordinary of venues, the dismal War Memorial Auditorium. But his presence was so commanding and the pieces were danced with such perfection that by the end of the night, the humble setting was easily forgotten.

Mikhail Baryshnikov

By JUDITH MACKRELL
The Guardian
February 18, 2004

In his current show he performs on a bare stage, with only pianist Pedja Muzijevic for support. A solo evening requires formidable stamina especially for a 56-year-old dancer. Yet in only one of the pieces does Baryshnikov's age feel like an issue rather than an advantage.

Dance: Mikhail Baryshnikov

By CLEMENT CRISP
The Financial Times
February 18, 2004

In 1970 the Kirov Ballet came to the Festival Hall. You could, night after night, see Kolpakova and Makarova, Yury Solovyov and a 22-year-old wonder, Mikhail Baryshnikov.

Passion undimmed

By ISMENE BROWN
The daily Telegraph
February 19, 2004

Two-thirds of Mikhail Baryshnikov's audiences these days have little idea that he was once the greatest ballet dancer alive. Young, open-minded, they see only a mature man in great shape, simply a dancer who makes them laugh, shrug, shiver, suddenly relish life more.

In brief, he sells tickets on his reputation and performs whatever he's commissioned from contemporary dance-makers, slight though the result might be. But how much can a choreographer ask of a vintage instrument in a fragile condition?

A blurb in the Boston Globe, BARYSHNIKOV IN THE CITY, notes that Mikhail Baryshnikov will be giving two benefit performances in the Boston Ballet's grand studio in late March.

Seating is limited, tickets are available at the Boston Ballet's web site.

Solos with Piano or Not...

By ZOE ANDERSON
The Independent
February 24, 2004

At the age of 55, Mikhail Baryshnikov still moves with absorbing skill. The thinnest material is interpreted with lucid precision and grace, and when he is given something better, his work takes on great warmth.

Age cannot wither him
At 56, Mikhail Baryshnikov still performs immaculately says David Dougill for The Sunday Times.

A dance legend returned to London last week: Mikhail Baryshnikov, in a delightful show titled Solos with Piano or Not ... Baryshnikov is 56, but still a ravishing mover of impeccable style
