   On the 20 and 21st of February you have two performances of Robbins Program. I love too many Robbins that I can just ask you Go to see it.
The programm is composed by Other dances, famous pdd created for Baryshnikov and Makarova. You could look Legris or Bart, or Hilaire with Guérin or Arbo or Dupont. In the night is also a wonderful ballet for six couples perhaps, Moussin, Gaida, Osta with Legris, Delanoé, Novis - Letestu, Dupont, Arbo with Bart, Belarbi - Guérin or Arbo with Romoli or Hilaire.
The cage a ballet based on amazon perhaps Guérin or Abbagnato or Pujol, Letestu or Gillot, or Baey and the funny Concert with Guérin perhaps and so on. I think you must see Guerin in one of the four ballets how she must dance the four.

I have seen "Other Dances" performed by Sylvie Guillem and Laurent Hilaire in London, and I really enjoyed it. It is danced to piano music by Chopin. In the performance I saw, the grand piano was actually on the stage and formed part of the "scene".
Is that the case in Paris, Catherine?

   Jim, I haven't seen "Other dances" (it has been performed only once by the POB until now, in a gala), but for "In the night"
and "The Concert" (also on some Chopin piano music) the piano is on stage indeed (and usually it's always the same pianist for such works, Henri Barda- I find him very good. He must be used to his funny role in "The Concert" now!)

Nikki, I think you won't regret seeing that program. "In the Night" is a very beautiful, romantic ballet, and "The Concert" is very funny (I haven't seen the others, but from what I've read they're interesting too). And in general the POB dancers are very at ease with Robbins' style.

Well, I shall look forward to that one - I have a ticket to see Sylvie dance The Concert in London soon after my visit to Paris in March.

   Piano is on stage for Other dances and for the Concert. Against in In the Night he's in the orchestra which is higher. But dancer need all stage for it.

I have seen that too, I think it's in the early 1990s shortly after Guillem joined the Royal Ballet.

May 1990? In a mixed bill including "Galanteries" (Bintley), Gloria (MacMillan) and that most dreadful of things "Pursuit" (Ashley Page)? If anyone started a threat about what we would not like to see revived, my choice would be Pursuit!

I think that you may take it as understood that we all knew what you meant. On the other hand, you ought to see one of the walls of my flat...
