"ENB Tour de Force!"
 
   Just to say that I went to Cambridge yesterday and saw the very attractive programme that ENB are performing on their "piano" tour: pas de deux from Flower Festival at Genzano, Sleeping Beauty and Don Quixote, plus two very different Balanchine pieces: Square Dance (not at all what you might think from the title - very classical and more like Concerto Barocco or something) and the Broadway-influenced Who Cares?, to music by Gershwin. It was generally very well danced, and despite being a matinee we had all four principals on the tour performing. Definitely worth a visit if you happen to live near Scunthorpe (this week) or Barnstaple (next week).

(The "orchestra" tour is touring more widely - for further details either check the listings here or visit http://www.ballet.org.uk )

   I was in Poole last week to see the other group dancing Apollo, Perpetuum Mobile by Christopher Hampson and the Grand Pas from Paquita. I enjoyed all three ballets,especially Apollo danced by Patrick Armand,Erina Takahashi,Elisa Celis and Caroline Duprot. I've been recently somehow disappointed in their full-length ballets,but I really like their Tour de Force. Last year I was lucky to see Tamara Rojo in three ballets for one evening. This year I was completely impressed by Erina Takahashi. I can now understand why she has been promoted so quickly. As Alison says, it's worth seeing. The Apollo tour will be now in Woking till Saturday.

   Yes, I enjoyed the other programme as well. Disappointed not to see Armand in Apollo - he was off sick, injured or otherwise indisposed, as quite a few others seem to be - but saw Alexis Oliveira again, who is good in the role. Only problem was that there was some mix-up over the cast sheets, and we were given the ones for the night before, which made it quite difficult to tell who was who. The tour continues, I think, to Truro and somewhere else this week (URL in my earlier posting).
