"Sylvie in Sydney?"
 
   I've heard a rumour that Sylvie Guillem will be dancing in Sydney at the time of the Olympics in 2000. Does anyone know anything about it?

   Jim,

There is a press release on Australia Ballet's website saying that there would be..."four performances by French superstar Sylive Guillem during the Capitol Theatre seaon for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Arts Festival". Doesn't say what the performaces are or give the actual dates.

   Sylvie won't be dancing with the Australian Ballet as such, I understand, but she'll be performing a solo work by Maurice Bejart which was choreographed especially for her some time ago. Her solo will be part of a mixed bill with works by several international choreographers - eg. Tharp,Forsythe, etc. I'm not sure what the Bejart work is called and this is only what I think I remember reading in the newspaper! I'll find the paper again and check this information later....

   Thanks to you both - I've added it to my Sylvie news page and will update as more becomes available.

>she'll be performing a solo work
>by Maurice Bejart which was choreographed
>especially for her some time ago.

I wonder if it is La Luna which she danced in London a few years ago.

   I finally found a bit more info about Sylvie's performances in Sydney for you Jim! The work she'll be dancing is Bolero and it will be part of a triple bill alongside Bella Figura by Kylian, and a new work called Personal Best by Australian choregrapher Stephen Baynes. There will be four performances from the 8th to the 12th of September 2000 (not at the Sydney Opera House) and I'm disgruntled because she's not visiting Melbourne (which is where I go to see the Aust. Ballet!). I'm afraid I got the stuff about works by Tharp etc wrong - I saw that in the newspaper and the journalist obviously didn't read the press release properly. Anyway, it's pretty obvious that Sylvie's being used to help the AB cash in on the Olympic crowds, but I hope they manage to make some money out of her performances just the same. If you want to double check any of this info, most of it's on the AB's website - under the 'news' heading with the stuff about Season 2000.
