"Viviana Durante"
 
   Good evening there,

Sorry to ask such a simple question that I'm sure everybody out there knows the answer to, but can somebody tell me where Viviana Durante is currently performing? I know at Christmas she appeared in "The Nutcracker" at the Coliseum - does she have any future plans to dance in this country?

I only saw her dance once - it was the pas de deux from "Romeo and Juliet" (when the ballet still had a balcony...) at the Opening Gala of the Royal Opera House. I happened to be in the stalls circle, standing next to a ballerina from the corps and - just to make conversation - I asked her if she was either a Darcey Bussell or Sylvie Guillem fan. Neither she said, it was Viviana Durante she most admired. By the end of the evening, I knew what she meant. (This was the first time I'd ever seen any ballet, except for "The Nutcracker" about ten years before, and was instantly converted.) Recently, I watched the video of Royal Ballet's "Sleeping Beauty" and thought that Durante was just magnificent.

Do you have to fly to Japan to see her dance?!

   I agree! I personally think Viviana is the best principal (or was) the best principal overall in RB. I heard that she was doing some filming for a movie -- does anyone know? And I also know that she won't be performing in Japan for some time because she's been performing there practically for the whole year! It'll be nice to see her back in Europe and I think she's doing some more guesting with a company in Italy. So is she just a "free artist" now or is she still a "guest" with RB?

She is no longer listed as a 'guest' in any of the recent Royal Ballet programmes!

She has been mentioned quite a bit on postings in recent months so why not try out the search facility to find out what she is up to!

   All I know is that she's meant to be dancing a piece in the Sir Anthony Dowell gala "A Knight at the Ballet".

   Heard from my Italian friends that Viviana Durante will be
-from now on- a regular guest-artist at "Teatro San Carlo" in Napoli.

   Thank you Viviane for the info. She must be pleased to dance in her native country. But it means we have less opportunities to see her in England. I'm sad as she was my favourite. Travelling to Italy to see her is quite expensive.
