"Birthday Offering Gala 22/10/00"
 
   This is not a review just a question - if anyone was there could they please tell me who was dancing with Acosta in the last piece and why on earth the dance of Gamzatti from La Bayadere Act 1 scene iii suddenly appeared in the middle of what seemed to be Le Corsaire pdd ? Most strange but then I did not have a programme (10 !!!!!!).

   It was Marianela Nunez, Emma. Are you sure about the Gamzatti? I know I was getting a bit tired by then, but ...

   You were not imagining things. That solo does sometimes appear in la Bayadere. There is also an interchange with the Queen of the Dryads solo from Don Q depending, on which version of le Corsaire you see.

   I didn't think I was going mad. Thanks for the information. I have that piece in the RB production of La Bayadere on video with Bussell as Gamzatti and Mukhamedov as Solor.

   About Nunez, it was my first time to see her. I was really looking forward to checking her out. I needed a kind of a confirmation about her recent promotion. Well, I didn't find her special. I didn't like her arms when she was dancing the solo. I didn't see her dance through the last season at all. I personally thought she is not up to the rank yet, but that's my opinion and I shouldn't judge her by yesterday's short performance only.

   Nunez was off ill at last night's "Swan Lake", so she may have not been at her best on sunday.

   I agree with you, Tomoko, although it should be noted that she was off ill last night, so may not have been too well on Sunday. Or perhaps she was suffering from being expected to live up to her performance in the ROH gala in July? (Could anyone who's been to both galas say if you thought she was as good on Sunday as at the ROH?). I find I still get rather distracted by her feet - I'm conscious that when one leg is extended the foot frequently isn't in alignment, but perhaps I'm focussing on that too much.
