Each day we add the latest links to reviews and interviews that we find on the major newspaper web sites. If you find a link that we have missed do please post it up, preferably as a URL link. On with the links....
(**) 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.

Anyone else notice the latest in the line of Anne Sacks howlers in her review of Coppelia? The inference of the text is that she did not notice that it was Leanne Benjamin dancing the doll solos in Act II nor does she know the story. She credits them to Naomi Reynolds (who was the doll).

Someone told me she did the same thing when reviewing ENB's production recently. I wonder if it's actually because she thinks the heroine's name is Coppelia? But you'd think she'd recognise Yoshida or Benjamin by now.

i really enjoyed COPPELIA very much, Muriel Valtat's solo was really wonderfull , a beautiful dancer, why is'ent she given more? my one diapointment the program WHY NO PHOTOGRAPHS? the powers that be shold take a look at Paris Opera programs full of up todate pictures taken during rehersal and perfomance. I really feel the program should be made more interesting, to pay a little more and get more would be good.
