"Pulling out nails ..."
 
   During a 4-minute (I kid you not!) slot about the Kirov and ENB productions of Sleeping Beauty on Radio 4's Today programme yesterday, Derek Deane came out with the statement that he'd rather have his nails pulled out without anaesthetic than sit through a 4-hour production of Sleeping Beauty.

Are there any other ballet-related events that readers find so horrendous that *they'd* actually prefer the nail-extraction option?!

   Oh dear - Derek Deane is just being Derek Deane!

I find him to be completely obnoxious. His ego clearly drives to make wholly inappropriate statements.

As such he has only himself to blame if dancers desert him in droves.

   I haveto admit it was a close call between that and the above.

   Sounds absolutely fascinating, Bruce. I have a few suggestions: the NYCB Swan Lake, Paradise Lost (something the RB did in the 60s for Fonteyn and Nureyev: they entered via a Warhol-like pair of giant lips; Fonteyn wore a plastic miniskirt with an apron; the corps were supposed to be trees or something, but wound up crawling on the floor whilst banging on it); then there are a few Twyla Tharp pieces I could nominate. I'll have to give more thought to this.... On the other hand, if Derek Deane keeps putting his foot in his mouth, as he has been doing lately, pretty soon he's bound to acquire foot and mouth disease (well, I don't really think he does have hoofs) or he might soon have no feet left. He doesn't seem to have acquired the understanding of the difference between spouting off to a close friend and spouting off to the press.

   Yes, anything in which Derek Deane has had a hand.
