   How was Renata Pavam? I've never seen her, but she's been winning awards in many ballet competitions...although I don't think she's ever won a gold medal in the major competitions. Just wanted to hear general comments about her....

   Thanks ever so much for the reports, Peter. Looks like yet another international medal-winner associated with Washington, DC's KIROV ACADEMY OF BALLET: Romania's Dragos Michalcea is a graduate of the Academy. Congratulations!

It is also MOST interesting to read that you & other audience members would have given the Grand Prix to Michalcea.

Renata Pavam-Maia is a very vivid memory from the 1998 Jackson IBC, where she captured the Jr divion-ladies' silver medal (just behind Kirov Academy/USA's Adrienne Canterna!). Happy to read that Ms. Pavam-Maia continues to shine.

   I think that the Rudolf Nureyev Ballet Competition deserves attention. There were a lot of great talents among the former competitors and winners, for example:

Johann KOBBORG /Royal Danish Ballet/
April BALL and Simon BALL /Boston Ballet/
Ajdar AKHMETOV /from Moscow,international artist/
Andrei BATALOV /Kirov Ballet/
Aki Nakata /from Japan/
Roman RYKINE, Guennadi NEDVIGUINE /from Russia, now at the San Francisco Ballet/
Vanessa ZAHORIAN /San Francisco Ballet/
Joaquin DE LUZ, Anne LICEICA /ABT/
Denis MATVIENKO /Kiev/, and so on!

Peter, what is the date the next Nureyev Ballet Competition?

   Thanks again, Peter. It is interesting to note how many competitors/medalists from the Jackson IBC--and other IBCs, certainly--have also competed in Budapest. There certainly is a Competition Circuit out there! I wonder how many of the competitors from Budapest will "go for Gold" at the quadrennial New York City IBC this June?

   Yes Jeannie, it's a "Competition Circuit" indeed! I think it is evident, the contestants work a lot preparing for a competition and they can make good use of their repertoire in other competitions too.

   I'm a hungarian ballet enthusiast. I speak in English a little. I saw the Rudolf Nureyev Ballet Competition's all evening. But I read this page only now. I think Mr Dragos Michalcea was the best.

   Dear Tibor,

I saw Mr. Dragos Michalcea with the Universal Ballet some month ago in Budapest. He danced the role of Basil in Don Quixote. He was excellent, very elegant and completely in style.
You can see an article from the NIBC in the DanceArt magazine, if you have an Acrobat Reader software. The link is: http://vizion.euroweb.hu/danceart/2000_2/00024248.pdf , or the home page: http://vizion.euroweb.hu/danceart/

   I have something interesting about the NIBC of 2000. The monetary prizes haven't been awarded yet. one year and a half later. So, the diferrence between the gold and bronze medalists is the size of their crystal vases.

If they will organize another competition in Budapest without having given out the money prizes from the last one it would be a great shame for the organizers

   Terry,
There were not Japanese contestants in this competition. That's a great pity!
At the 3rd Nureyev Comp. in 1998 there were five Japanese contestants. HASHIMOTO Sonoko, TAKITA Shinobu, MATSUNAMI Risa, TANABE Mayu, KIJIWARA Masahito. All the Japanese contestants were exellent and HASIMOTO and TANABE were great in acting.
The founder-director of the Comp. is Mr. BOKOR Roland. He works at the Hungarian State Opera,he organises all the tasks of the Comp. I will try to find the rule of the Comp. and send you.
