"Raymonda in Milan"
 
   Dear friends,
as waited, Teatro alla Scala in Milan presented next ballet and opera performances, both for the end of current season and for the next one.
While confirming the venue of POB in Raymonda from 20 to 23, it was stated that - unfortunately for all those living outside Milan - no internet or telephone reservation will be available for these performances, only box office from Sept. 4th (nice, isn't it?).
Moreover next season (2000/2001) will see Guillem only in Giselle (her own production) June/July (reservation opens from 23/4 to 7/5).

Nice to see the Guillem Giselle venturing out from Helsinki. It is a changed and MacMillanesq production and well worth seeing. We have one of the few reviews of the piece (he said immodestly!).

RB would be wise to commission something from her.

   Dear Guido,

I have read on La Scala Web-site:
"The tickets should be available also at the
CARIPLO's agencies windows ."
I hope it means everywhere in Italy and,maybe, in the wordl too.
If it isn't so,it's a great problem.
For not Italian people, CARIPLO is an important Lombard Bank.

P.S.
Thank you very much for your kind informations about the
famous "long stamped envelope etc." :it was really
not necessary.
My reflection:is it perhaps easier to book a ticket
in Paris then at home?

   Quite right Angelo.
I don't know if foreign branches of Cariplo sell La Scala tickets. Of course Italian balletgoers can use this mean of reservation.
Regarding theater reservations, well you are right, you can easily reserve everywhere, except La Scala and, recently, ROH in London (I have not yet accepted the "loss" of my fax reservation for March performances of "Ashton revisited").
If you are Italian, please write me at my e-mail address.

Is casting info. available? If Elizabeth Platel were to appear it would be well worth a visit....


>Moreover next season (2000/2001) will see

First Paris (January), then Milan (June/July)? I wonder if London would stand a chance to see her Giselle in between... Does anyone know?

   Naoko,

According to the information given by POB in the beginning of June, Elisabeth Platel was not casted for their Milano tour. Raymonda/J. de Brienne/Abderam will be danced by Letestu/Martinez/Hilaire on 20/09, 22/09 and 23/09 (evening) and Dupont/Bart/Romoli on 21/09 and 23/09 (matinée). Maybe Guido will be able to update you as I'm not sure if there have been casting changes since June.

If you are interested in Platel, she will dance again at the beginning of the 2000-2001 season in Paris, on 16/10, partenered by Yann Saïz. According to some people who saw her in June, she was very good especially in her style, her acting which largely compensated a certain technical weakness. I should say that Aurélie Dupont and Agnès Letestu whom I saw in June were brilliant also even if they didn't have maybe the same stage "charisma" as Platel. Both were almost perfect technically and that seems to be important in such a ballet considered by many as one of the most difficult and toughest in the classical repertory for the ballerina.

   Pauline,

Many thanks for the detailed info. It's a shame she's not casted for Milan tour - but somehow I feel a bit relieved - it always gives me a headache thinking about booking tickets from La Scala! Someone who saw both Platel and Dupont in POB's Raymonda last month spoke very highly of them - especially Platel - that urged me to catch a glimpse of her whenever there's an opportunity. It's so sad that once retired POB etoiles do not frequent the old nest as frequent as public wish them to (for instance, how often Paris audience sees Loudieres with POB after her retirement?) - do you not agree?

Naoko

   Naoko,

I completely agree with you especially for Loudières who appeared only in Sylvia since her retirement as far as I remember. We are maybe luckier for Platel as POB management seems to be more keen to invite her : twice for Raymonda, last June and next October on the year following her retirement, which is a good start in comparison with Loudières.

We saw Pietragalla in Nureyev's Cinderella and Signes (Carolyn Carlson's ballet). No need to say of course that Guillem is a special case on this matter as she is usually invited to perform two ballets in a season (for the 2000-2001 season, she should dance in "Manon" in March, and in Romeo and Juliette in June).

I understand that Loudières is performing more frequently abroad within the Legris'Group (notably in Japan?). Yesterday, there was a Special Dance evening at Nîmes's festival with dancers belonging to the Legris'Group : I read in the newspapers that Platel led this small group of young POB dancers (Pech, Saîz, Abbagnato, Bélingard, Pujol, Hurel,Courtain...) and danced Raymonda PDD and Swan Lake PDD.Loudières was not casted.

   Pauline,

Thanks - Having read your message I'm much more convinced to go and see Platel in October while there's a chance.

In Tokyo you definitely have more opportunities to see the wider varieties of companies/dancers - they literally come from all over the world. For instance Loudieres will be dancing Giselle there later this year with Charles Jude as her Albrecht! Don't know any other place on the globe where you can have the privilege to see two of these outstanding artists on stage together... It's true often our capital looks like a ballet-goer's paradise - though there's a drawback of their own (Cannot tell you about this now - it would be too lengthy... I've got to go!). Just a quick note: Recently Kumakawa's company did tour around the country with Viviana Durante as a guest star; next week will see this special event called 'World Ballet Festival', with Guillem/Ferri among other stars. In autumn/winter season they will see both Kirov and NYCB - the list goes on & on... One thing I really miss is the opportunities to see less known but nevertheless great companies ("little gems") from former USSR republics. Without doubt life here would be more enriched if we could see a company like Kiev Ballet, for example.

   Naoko,

Although I have been living in Paris for more than 10 years, I used to live in Tokyo, so I can easily imagine what you call "Ballet-goers' paradise". Indeed there is only Japan who can afford spending lot of money to gather major dancers from all over the world in this "World Ballet Festival" and to organise major companies'venues all through the year. I have been a ballet-fan for a long time but I became really POB-addicted when I saw Loudières in this Festival in 1991!

Do you intend to go back home this summer to attend this splendid festival? If so, I envy you a lot. Summer season is not very active in Paris as you can imagine.

   Susy,

As far as I know there's no English website on this...sorry.

Pauline,

No - but someone I know will do go back to Tokyo because of the festival. As you may be aware London ballet fans have had a splendid summer season - RB and Kirov has occupied the opera house for more than two months. I'm a Kirov addict so have no intention to go anywhere while they are in town!

I think you really should cross the channel...
