   The Evening Standard reports a dramatic drop in box office takings throughout the West End. The Beautiful Game, Witches of Eastwick and Notre Dame de Paris may all close early. So the Kirov may not be alone in feeling a chill wind.....

   A bit belated this; from Tuesday's Melbourne Age a review of Australian Ballet's farewell gala for Ross Stretton. Quote: "Stretton's favorite catchwords were ``creativity, energy, passion'', and the gala sought to exemplify how he had drawn these qualities from the company"
http://www.theage.com.au/entertainment/2001/06/19/FFXSXI4K4OC.html

From the same paper a gloomy piece on the prospect for choreographers in Australia. Sounds familiar....
