   In the Independent there is a report from Moscow by Nadine Meisner about the Bolshoi's new producton of a Petipa's lost ballet "Pharaoh's Daughter". I've never heard of this ballet before.

   I thought the Pharoah's Daughter is about the French President Mitterands illegitimate daughter, Mazerine . But I guess that if was done by Petipa then that probably is not the case

It's part of my job to entertain. What ballet lacks, ENB's outspoken director Derek Deane tells Ismene Brown, is old-fashioned glamour:

A love affair with youth. Paul Farrell, just 21, talks about doing Romeo in the SB production of R&J. (Not sure how stable the URL for this piece is - hope it remains up for a while):

   And according to the Times article there was a big piece in "Hello" about her recently - bet *they* don't have an on-line version!

I leafed through 'Hello' today and saw the article on Volochkova. She's modelling a lot of horrible spangly clothes and looks like a page 3 bimbo. I'm sorry to be so hard on her, but it's the truth. It's such a pity; she really doesn't need to stoop to this because she's - technically at least - a very talented dancer. Whoever is managing her career has made a bad misjudgement here.

   I agree but then again Darcey has been featured modelling stuff in OK a number of times (which is possibly even more naff than Hello) so it is not without precedent.

I am sure that Deborah Bull has been in Hello too.

Not that I am an avid reader.......

Not with a bang, but a whimper. Debra Craine sees Birmingham Royal Ballet open its Covent Garden season with a Giselle revival:

   Both yesterday's Evening Standard and today's Financial Times contain reviews of Giselle, so presumably they're on-line somewhere as well. To sum up, Clement Crisp was pretty rude about it (and, strangely, omitted to mention Chi Cao in the Peasant pas de deux), whereas Anne Sacks gave it 2 stars (out of a possible 3). This quotation will give some idea of her review:

"Although they could never marry in life, they consummate their marriage for one night only, in spirit, in the sombre hush of a spooky baroque church, witnessed by mournful jilted brides in ghostly dresses".

Sounds rather more like Romeo & Juliet to me! Oddly, though, *I* was always under the impression that the "mournful jilted brides" were actually trying to *kill* Albrecht . Oh, and BTW, I'm not that well up on architecture, but it does occur to me that the church looked more Perpendicular than Baroque!

That's not necessarily a true statement... the Evening Standard does not usually put its reviews on the web and the FT has not always published Crisps either (they went through a phase, before they recut their site, when most of his reviews were on line - alas not always the case now).

   This is obviously a reversal of their previous policy, then - I used to get really confused looking for the ballet reviews in the hard copy of the FT, only to find they didn't come up until days (if at all) after the on-line version.
