   >Suggestions please for next weeks poll....

Well, maybe two polls

"Who is your fantasy partner?"

MEN:

Odette
Odile
Giselle
Nikyia
Kitri
Lise
Aurora
Swanhilda
Juliet
Manon
Other
(I'd go for the Lilac Fairy anytime - I bet she'd make a nice cup of Horlicks).

WOMEN

Seigfried
Colas
Albrecht
Romeo
Des Grieux
Dr Coppelius
Von Rothbart
Other

   Nice idea - but not sure we handle two polls at the same time.

Could do one, one week and the other the following week, but that would give some visitors nothing to vote on at times (or perhaps I'm just prejudging our readerships preferences?!)

I'll have a think.

Any more ideas folks?

   It's a brilliant idea - why not have 5 men and 5 women to pick from as fantasy partners on the same poll? That leaves everyone to pick a partner of the 'appropriate' sex.

   Ok - so what am I bid as to the 5's from Jims list above (or others if some have been missed)

It's worth putting time in on this or we find that "Other" gets too many votes and it all becomes less meaningful and interesting.

Lets not be shy - the more thoughts the better...

   Lets have some from none London Productions as well.
I would love to dance with Will Mossop, from Hobsons Choice.

Edward and Sargent Troy might be other peoples preference.

Bruce if you do run this next week please put in a vote for me with Will, or Colas as second choice as I will not have a net connection.

Thanks Pauline

   I'm so glad my idea is finding favour, though I do suggest that first time round we stick to the big classics, as everyone knows them. Maybe expand into others when you're stuck another time!
I also suggest that both Odette and Odile are indluded

   Is this not a little one sided? This may be a personal opinion but I have always thought most classical ballet heroes very wimpy. It is no surprise to me that Siegfried's mother is so anxious that he is not having luck with the girls.


Anyway still think it is a good idea for a poll. Can I suggest Lescaut (so much more bad boy appeal than De Grieux)?

   The bloke in Spectre de la Rose
The Golden Slave from Scheherezade
Prince Igor

They're not wimpy, even if the costumes are camp

   OK girls-what about Prince Rudolf In Mayerling. Here is a chance for some really passionate and bizarre sex as oppose to your run of the mill snog!

   Well if the boys are getting Odette *and* Odile then I want the girls to get both the Swan and the Stranger from AMP's Swan Lake.

Fair's fair.

Oh, and Jim, if you didn't know, Bruce lusts after Lopatkina as Odile and Sylvie in just about anything.

Nearly right Jenny, though you possibly omitted the odd name or two.

Off the top of my head there would have to be... Nina Ananiashvili, Altaynai Asymuratova, Leanne Benjamin, Maria Bylova, Viviana Durante, Muriel Halle, Daria Klimentova, Sandra Madgwick, Christina McDermott, Jayne Regan, Tamara Rojo, Genasia Rosato, Gail Tapehouse, Andrea Tredinnick, Wendy Whelan, Miyako Yoshida, Monica Zamora... (to name but a few!!)

But it's characters we're considering here, not the dancers themselves!

   C'mon, Bruce, tell us who you dream about during those boring moments in the office - an innocent Juliet, malicious Odile, perfidious Manon, authoritarian Myrtha, or elusive sylphide?

   LAST EDITED ON 05-Sep-99 AT 07:10 PM (GMT)

Heaven forbid that I should admit to any boring moments in the office!

But since you ask I guess it depends on what mood I'm in(!)... but I can understand what Palemon see's in Ondine and Lascaut's Mistress always struck me as more fun (and more constant) than Manon herself. And talking of Manon... then there is Genesia Rosato as Madame!

   How about Merctuio? Failing that, I go along with the suggestions of Lescaut or Colas.
