"Universal Ballet filmed?"
 
   I went to the Universaal Ballet's performance of Don Q. last night. As I was leaving after the performance, I noticed that in the front of the stalls, there was a video camera. I assume that this was used to film the performance? Does anyone know what this is for?

   Hopefully it will be something more constructive, like simply archiving performances of the company for future reference. This is something more companies should do, so that future perfomers can watch their predecessors. It owuld also resolve issues of which steps were used in which productions and so on.

   BRB now video at least one performance or dress rehersal of every ballet. David Morse one of the companys experianced Character principles is their archavist. They use Benesh and the videos when they start preparing for a revival as well as the skills of dancers who remember ther roles.

   Was "Don Q" as bad as "Giselle"?

   I think everyone has the right to state one's personal impression of a company, but I think when one gives a criticism, the person has to understand some background and the nature of the company. The Universal Ballet is a fairly recent company, most dancers haven't received the best training they could've, but hopefully, by making Kirov Academy their official school, they will be producing more talented dancers in the near future. Of course, they aren't anything close to RB or POB, but we have to give them a chance!

   Yes, but when they've been talked up as much as this company has (big articles in the papers saying how wonderful they are etc.), are you surprised if people are disappointed when they see them in the flesh?

   Exactly right Alison. If you use publicity with rave quotes from people like Clive Barnes you expect something good. And people should not be afraid to express their views on a performance freely.
