   And I forgot! Did anyone listen to it, or better still, think to tape it?

   I did listen, though I'm afriad I wasn't able to tape it Alison but I can tell you what I remember.

Tamara started with ballet at five. Her parents were a little dubious at first and insisted she put her education first so ballet was always an after-school activity. She disliked school and ballet was her outlet. Later her parents agreed to send her to Victor Ullate's school, after she saw them perform on television.

She was at first only concerned with getting the steps technically perfect, but as she watched other ballerinas, she saw how each of them invested a part of themselves into the role, and made each role individual. Tamara described the process of learning a role - by the reading the book, getting the steps right, and finally trying to discover the feelings and motivations behind the character. She said that she didn't create a role according to audience expectations. She only did it for herself and tried to be truthful to the role. In Romeo and Juliet, when stepping out on stage, she would 'become' Juliet, and would feel whatever Juliet was supposed to feel. When she kissed her Romeo, she really did feel like kissing him!

Tamara felt that she believed that everyone had only one life to live, but she was lucky in that she got to experience several different lives through her roles.

She also spoke about the enormity of feelings she had when on stage, and the great love she felt from the audience. But satisfaction came not only from performances, but also from rehearsals and creating the character. And tt was a misconception, she insisted, that all the British cared about was Big Brother and that all kinds of people could enjoy ballet.

Tamara mentioned Onegin which she's rehearsing now. And Don Q she finds quite funny as the chracters are such extremes from the Spanish in reality. People assumed, she said, that Kitri would come easily to her, but she felt that it was so exaggerated she found it difficult, and would find some way to reconcile her interpretation with the usual one.

Tamara came across as funny, thoughtful and quite articulate. I quite enjoyed the interview, though it didn't make any great relevations about her or the art form.

The programme also played excerpts from Romeo and Juliet, Giselle, Don Q, Onegin. There was a lot more to it I'm sure but memory fails me. Maybe someone else will be able to add to it.

   ...since I am not fortunate enough to live in a country where this interview was broadcast - may I ask for a copy as well??
My email is: sonja.grether@gmx.de - would be simply great, but if it's too much of an effort, please don't bother!
