Val Caniparoli's choreography announcement
reached my mailbox while I was in Jackson. Since
he is one of the bright choreographic lights in
the Bay Area and with S.F. Ballet, I send it along
for those who might be able to see his works. Val received
the Isadora Duncan Dance Award for choreography for the 2000-2001
season for his S.F. Ballet production "Death of a Moth" April 30.

Tulsa Ballet, August 9,10, 11 at the Olga Cadaval Cultural
Center, Sintra Festival, Sintra, Portugal.
"Lady of the Camellias" to Frederick Chopin will be danced by the same company, same venue, August 15,16,17. The hour for both ballets is 9:30 p.m. I hope someone who comments on ballet.co.will be there and can comment on this particular, full-length work for the website.
