Missed department: Darcey Bussell was in yesterday's Mail on Sunday - the 'Night & Day' supplement. Unfortunately it's not available electronically, so you will have to ask your Gran to save you her copy... Meanwhile on with todays links:

DANCE: Recreated 'nightingale' is a turkey. Lucent Dance Theatre, The Hague. By Clement Crisp:

(**)

Muddle of the road. The Arts Council is to hand out £10 million for touring productions, reveals John Whitley. But will it be enough to satisfy demand for high-quality art?
http://www.telegraph.co.uk:80/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=VMVMkwDK&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/99/11/22/batour22.html

(**) FT links generally only persist for a few days, before going into an archive which you have to pay to access. So get free while you can. Currently visitors don't have to register to use the FT site, but in the past this was the case - hopefully it will not return.

   The ROH reopening is certainly getting plenty of coverage, isn't it? The Daily Telegraph today has a 2-page fashion spread shot inside the building - don't know if that's on-line!

The Telegraph has gone ROH bonkers today...

A bridge to the arts. Deborah Bull outlines her programme for the Clore Studio Upstairs:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk:80/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=Q0QwpmHR&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/99/11/23/bmop623.html


There is so much to do - so let's get lively. Ismene Brown welcomes the facilities for dancers but detects a lack of imagination in the new season:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk:80/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=Q0QwpmHR&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/99/11/23/bmop323.html


A new beginning. Norman Lebrecht looks back on the longest-running farce in the West End and hails its happy conclusion:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk:80/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=Q0QwpmHR&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/99/11/23/bmop23.html



http://www.telegraph.co.uk:80/graphics/99/11/23/bmop23.jpeg";>
Michael Kaiser is the man!


The House that Vivien built. The new building is a triumph for its redoubtable fundraiser. She talks to Norman Lebrecht:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk:80/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=Q0QwpmHR&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/99/11/23/bmop223.html


Music to the eyes. Inside and out, the Royal Opera House has been transformed by an architectural scheme of rare flexibility and glamour. Giles Worsley applauds the results - and, below, interviews the men whose stylistic range made it possible:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk:80/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=Q0QwpmHR&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/99/11/23/bmop423.html


The woman who will orchestrate the opera. Rupert Christiansen talks to Elaine Padmore:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk:80/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=Q0QwpmHR&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/99/11/23/bmop723.html


Triumph of the reluctant classicists. The Covent Garden architecture. By Giles Worsley:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk:80/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=Q0QwpmHR&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/99/11/23/bmop523.html

   Never mind the articles about the ROH in the Telegraph - on the front page there is a photo of Darcey (with Cherie Blair) looking absolutely drop dead gorgeous ( similar photo in the Express).

She puts all those "Bond" girls to shame on the other paper's front cover.

It makes me forget some of the less flattering comments I have made about her in the past.

   And at least the Telegraph managed to spell her name right - the Express has a capital-letters headline giving it as "DARCY"!

Can't find anything in the UK Papers today. So a quick look to the NY Times...

It's the Guardian's turn to feature ROH today...

Mixing the old with the new. Ballets to come. By Judith Mackrell:
www.newsunlimited.co.uk/friday_review/story/0,3605,107836,00.html
(*)

If it's toffs only, we've failed. Gerald Kaufman hopes that this is the birth of people's opera:
www.newsunlimited.co.uk/friday_review/story/0,3605,107832,00.html
(*)

No more soap opera. For years it's been a national joke, riddled with management incompetence and snobbery. Now, writes Guardian arts editor Dan Glaister, the new-look ROH must take the opportunity to end its elitist ways:
www.newsunlimited.co.uk/friday_review/story/0,3605,107833,00.html
(*)

House proud. The Royal Opera House renovation was a drama in itself but Jonathan Glancey likes what he sees:
www.newsunlimited.co.uk/friday_review/story/0,3605,107834,00.html
(*)


And then other stuff..

Martial art forms. Union Dance Company Queen Elizabeth Hall, London. By Judith Mackrell:

   There's a Crisp review of God's Plenty on the FT web site (listed under theatre reviews not dance).

He didn't like it.
