   Jenny Gilbert previews San Francisco Ballet for the Independent. "The roll-call of choreographers confirms the company's quality. Robbins was notoriously picky about who could perform his works. The Balanchine Trust has its own style police. Mark Morris is famously hard to impress. "There are very few ballet companies I want to work with," he has said, "but I really, really like SFB. They have that great `Let's put on a show' spirit ... They're great dancers, but there's absolutely nothing precious about them." And he's right".
http://globalarchive.ft.com/globalarchive/article.html?id=010812003133&query=ballet

An open letter from the Independent's Jenny Gilbert to Sylvie Guillem about her Giselle. "What worries me more is your high-handedness with the choreography. Not the fact that you changed it (that's fine by me). But the fact that you cut that crucial umbilical cord between dance themes and musical ones. This ballet, of all ballets, depends on it". Again via the FT site.

   I truly agree with Jenny Gilbert, the arrogance , it would be good to know how many really enjoyed the ballet, and how many still would have done if Madam Guillem had not danced Miss Guillem, or if the choreograhy had be done by an unkown, somehow I believe it would have got slayed.
Would be good to have some honest opinions.

   Here's Luke Jenning's rather equivocal take (1 star) on San Francisco Ballet for the Evening Standard. Fanfare is piece is "twee and stiff" and the male costumes "would confirm Billy Elliot's Dad's worst suspicions". Jennings warms to the Morris and the Balanchine, but ignores the Possokhov piece.

   I gave my honest opinion here a couple of days ago! I'm not a big fan of Sylvie's dancing by any stretch of the imagination, and I don't think that the production was perfect in concept or detail, but I did enjoy it very much indeed, and would rate it way higher than Bayadere or Corsaire (and anything by Ek)! Incidentally, I thought that the dancing was of a far higher standard than we saw from the Kirov.

   LAST EDITED ON 15-08-01 AT 08:51 AM (GMT)

I really enjoyed it -I thought it was an interesting take on teh original and really added something to the first act. I would actually have preferred to see it without Guillem (although I am a fan) to see how well the choreography works on someone who is not so widely acknowledged.

I have to say that would made it for me is the corps in the second act and the ensemble pieces in the first. I love the classical version of Giselle and find that I usually tend to ignore the other dancers on stage (esp in teh first act) to look at Giselle/Albrecht. This didn't happen so much in this production

I took a friend to see who has not seen the original and she thoroughly enjoyed it too.

the press release contains the same tired language every press release of its kind makes. nothing all that new is being said, IMHO. to make the statement that they are going to position themselves (!) to be a contemporary company but that they will have classical training and that this won't preclude them from presenting a classical ballet? it's like saying you're going to be exciting now. well just be it, don't say it. if what they want to do is stop doing large classical presentations then they should just say they're going to. but the language they're using is in that sense so non-committal it's almost comical.

   SFB & White Oak
Retro rebels without flaws
White Oak Dance Project Edinburgh Playhouse
San Francisco Ballet Royal Opera House, London WC2
Baryshnikov missed out on the radical Sixties. Now he's taking them in his stride
Somewhat against the tide here.. "So far, the appeal of Christopher Wheeldon, hailed as the white hope of the future, eludes me. His Sea Pictures is one of those predictable pieces that could have been made any time in the past 70 years, like so much of his work for the Royal Ballet. Perhaps his recent pieces for City Ballet will come closer to the demands that Balanchine made on his dancers and audiences."
By Jann Parry
http://www.observer.co.uk/review/story/0,6903,538899,00.html

SFB & White Oak
States of grace
The season's best dance is born in the USA - from Baryshnikov in Edinburgh to London's SFB, says David Dougill
"For all its slickness, this was rather a hotchpotch show (White Oak). Some of the choreographers' recorded comments were tedious or pretentious, ditto some of the works. I was not the only one yawning at the interval. But Childs's Concerto (a 1993 piece), to chugging Gorecki, with punchy dancing for the whole company, made a rousing climax. And the bulk of the audience loved the entire thing."
