A very brief word about Tamara Rojoís Ondine on Thursday 23rd. Iím sorry I donít have time for a full review to do her justice. She really was excellent - very fresh, lively, enchanting, and really put across the wonderful abandon of falling in love. It was difficult to tear your eyes from her. Her shadow dance was delightful - it really did seem as if she was seeing this for the first time. It was a touching performance, she really seemed to identify totally with the role.
This is her first Ashton piece, but she seemed to have her feet round it. I would wish her a more responsive partner than Urlezaga another time, but never mind. Persson was Tirrenio - lots of power and dash, but curiously, no real authority.
