"Where is Viviana Durante?"
 
   Does anyone know where Durante is performing this year?I believe she did a new work with Mark Baldwin and took the lead role in the new production of Cassandra in Italy but apart from that I have seen nothing advertised.When will she return to London(and preferably not as the Sugar Plum Fairy)?............

   This October, Durante will return to Japan to perform MacMillan's R&J with the New National Theater of Tokyo as a guest artist. Her partner will be Robert Tewsley from the Stuttgart Ballet. This is really too bad for her British fans,
but us Japanese fans are overjoyed!!

   Terry, do you know who is going to stage it ? I think no Japanese ballet companies have done MacMillan's R&J before. So it will be their first time. Viviana is an obvious choice for Juliet. Thank God, Kumakawa is not her Romeo. Sorry, but I'm not convinced of their partnership. I often heard Robert Tewsley is a wonderful dancer with excellent acting skill. Viviana has already danced with him before. I believe he is a RBS trained British dancer. I hope to see him in England one day.

   Well from the information that I've obtained at the New National Theater of Tokyo site, it looks like Georgina Parkinson and Terrence Orr of ABT are going to do it. The sets, however, are going to come from BRB. Yes, I've heard their partnership has worked quite well. It's really too bad that Viviana will not be performing so often in the UK!

   It seems that Alessandra Ferri is pregnant and it's Viviana Durante who must replace her in USA tour, in Carmen.
Are all the problem with Roland Petit forgotten ?

   Tomoko -- it's the La Scala tour. Viviana will replace Ferri in California. I hope she can replace her in the NY performance as well.

   Thanks Terry for your post.
It's interesting to know that Durante will be taking the lead role now in Carmen.
Do you know anything about the initial argument with Petit and her subsequent sacking from La Scala?

   I just watched Durante last night in Mayerling. Oh my!

And now it seems that I will have to see Giselle because of my work schedule. No weeknights off.

Have you seen both dancers?

   This evening, Viviana Durante danced with the La Scala Ballet as Carmen in Roland Petit's Carmen. She was paired with Laurent Hilaire replacing Alessandra Ferri who was originally scheduled to dance. Ms. Durante was phenominal: sensual, perfect form and well paired with Mr. Hilaire. A beautiful performance which will be repeated tomorrow evening. An enchanting evening which will reinforce her reputation of being one of the top ballerinas in the world. All is well.

I believe that was Massimo Murru dancing - Hilaire broke his foot while rehearsing Giselle in California. Unless he healed VERY quickly.

Murru danced the role with Durante while in Southern Calif. I think he was the only one scheduled to dance that ballet.

   I am so pleased that Durante will be dancing in the Mukhamedov gala on the 30th Sep.It will be the last chance to see this great partnership together,and I for one feel "Durante Deprived".There are so many other wonderful ballerina's ,I know and I have seen some truly wonderful performances at the Opera House this year(Guillem in A Month in the Country springs to mind)but I feel the Italians presence is sorely missed in London.Does anyone else feel this way?
It is for sure her first appearance here in some time.....

   I think the fact that one of the pieces being danced, entitled 'MacMillan piece' could be telling. The gala is showcasing dance pieces important to Irek, and I can't believe he wouldn't include Manon or Mayerling. And who better to dance it with than Durante! Is this too much wishful thinking? Any other speculators out there?

The more we talk about this gala the more I am sad that I won't get to see it. What a wonderful opportunity for those of you across the Pond.

   Viviana Durante could not dance "Corsaire" in Naples because the performances where cancelled. She will dance tomorrow evening:
http://www.danze.co.uk/dcforum/news/934.html

"Excelsior" is a full length work in the La Scala Ballet repertory, but hardly a new one! It was created in 1881 by Manzotti, but the actual version was coreographed by Ugo Dell'Ara in 1967. You can read more about it on the January issue of ballet.co magazine.

   JPaul,
Just want to add that La Scala will be performing "Excelsior" at the Garnier, beginning of January 2002.
Dates : 9-10-11
'Excelsior' is already on the repertory of La Scala.
If I have this right last performances where in Genova or Torino end of December 2000.
Susy made a review on it but I can't find it.

Maybe an opportunity to see Viviana Durante !?
