"In Search of ABT's Corsaire"
 
   Let's just call it a plea from the befuddled.

I thought I heard Debbie Bull at the end of last Sat's broadcast of RB's Coppelia say that ABT's Corsaire (with her dulcet tones at the beginning) would be broadcast this Sunday (27/2/00) at 3.00 p.m. Search as I might I can find no listing.

It is my brain that is listing? Did I hear incorrectly? Am I just hearing things?

An expiring mind needs to know. Any help will be hugely appreciated -- whilst I'm still able to read, that is!!!

I thought it was supposed to be this Saturday or Sunday, but I don't see it listed in the schedules. Have they dropped it?

   The Beeb are also presenting some Rambert works including Ghost Dances I think - don't have date to hand at the moment.

Good to see such variety - good to see dance on the telly of course. (I won't say anything more about live vs TV dance either!)

   ... only the Beeb, for reasons best known to themselves, have decided to refer to it as "The Pirate", which means that no ballet fan will recognise it, and everyone else will think it's a Douglas Fairbanks film or something ... I don't know the Video number yet, but I think it finishes at 5.10. I set my video for the supposed date while I was away, and got 2 hours of Sunday Grandstand instead!

   Yes, this Fairbanksian production will be on Saturday, 4th March at 3.20 pm. Video plus number is 63701015. But stars Stiefel and Corella so should be worth setting the video for. My video will be set while I'm off to see Scott & Adam in the flesh!

   Please see my review of Le Corsaire on the video review section on this web site.

Go to the home section and click on videos.

The two real highlights of this production is
Gilliam Murphey's Obedesque solo in the first act and the power technique of Paloma Herrera. She is incredible!!
