"Durante & Guillem in the States"
 
   Lara recently asked: "If one had to choose between two performances, what should one choose - Carmen with Durante or Giselle with Guillem? I know only what I have read on this site about the two dancers. Any favorites out there? Wonder who their partners will be!"

I haven't managed to see either of these ballerinas dance these particular roles, so I wouldn't like to volunteer anything, but I'm sure there are loads of people out there with much better informed opinions than me. So what's the answer?

   hi jane, i can't find lara's original post...is durante and guillem really performing in the states?! WHEN? WHERE? how do i get tickets!!! -kylie

(i think i'd want to see both, but if i had to choose one over the other, i guess i'd go with guillem/giselle. i just find guillem to have more of an impact on me...in a physical sense-the incredible sensuous tactile feel she gives, as well as emotional-the charisma
and strength of her personality, which can bring such authenticity to her work. besides...i've heard so much about her controversial giselle...)

   kylie,

They are on tour with La Scala ballet and will be at the Orange County Performing Arts Center—Southern California — July 10-15

The OCPAC site:

http://www.ocnow.com/shared/events/calendar/events.html?id=Calendar::Event%3d4525

and from teatroallascala site:

http://www.teatroallascala.org/eng/homepage.htm

>>>In the month of July the Ballet will be touring in New York and Los Angeles, with Sylvie Guillem in Giselle and Alessandra Ferri in Carmen; this prestigious tour will set the seal on a particularly busy season for our Company, featuring many great guest artists, not only at the Scala and other Milanese theatres, but also in venues around Italy and in a lengthy international tour.<<<

But Ferri is not dancing because of pregnancy - Durante is.

Their site is difficult to navigate so I couldn't figure out the New York dates.

Never seen Durante in Carmen but I love her to bits and would want to see her. But Guillem and Giselle are very special - it's her fav 19th century work and if Le Scala it's her production as well. I think they have different designs to the original Finnish production which we have many reviews of. Some useful links:

Guillem and Giselle reviews:

Durante reviews
http://www.ballet.co.uk/cgi/reviews_database_search/db_search.cgi?dancer_names=Durante

{Note you could do these searches yourself by going to the Reviews Advanced Search page and filling in a box or two on the form. Here is quick link to the relevent page:

   Oh for sure I'd opt for Durante and I am envious of those who will have the chance to see her in this role.She gives so few performances in London now and her absence is greatly felt by many balletomanes.I admire Guillem tremendously,but it's the musicality of Durante and the ease and lightness of her dancing(not to mention her dramatic capabilities-I would imagine her exotic, fiery looks will make her an ideal Carmen)that make her my personal favorite.
Wonder how much a flight will cost to the Orange County????Mmmnnnnn.......Think I'll wait and just hope they come to Sadler's Well's or something.....

   Bruce,

Thanks you for the links - they were all so good! Made the decision making process that much harder. But since I could only go one night, I took your words about the specialness of the Giselle and booked seats for that one. I'll have to see Durante another time.

Thanks for the advice!

There are several good ballets coming to Orange County this next season and I am thinking maybe being a subscriber would be the best way to see what I like from the seats I think best.

lara
