Norman Lebrecht (Telegraph Music critic/commentator) is doing a book about the Royal Opera House. Here are some extracts (to go with those published last Saturday)...

Margot and Rudi: were they lovers? In part two of The Daily Telegraph's serialisation of his extraordinary book on the Royal Opera House, Norman Lebrecht recounts the explosive impact the young Rudolf Nureyev had on both the Royal Ballet and the flagging career of Margot Fonteyn:

   Bizet's Carmen goes west. Matthew Bourne has invented an entirely new theatrical genre, with the production values of musicals, but with dance instead of songs. His latest, The Car Man, is his most ambitious yet. By Nadine Meisner:
http://www.independent.co.uk/enjoyment/Theatre/Dance/2000-09/carmen120900.shtml

Doré pushes the limits again. Adventures In Motion Pictures: The Car Man Dir: Matthew Bourne.Adventures In Motion Pictures. by Maureen Paton:

Dancers' date for royal birthday. by Robin Stringer:
http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/dynamic/hottx/review.html?in_review_id=315129&in_review_text_id=258888


Norman Lebrecht (Telegraph Music critic/commentator) is doing a book about the Royal Opera House. Here are some extracts (to go with those published on Saturday and Monday)...

The rise and fall of Michael Kaiser. He arrived at Covent Garden after a period of convulsive dispute, and was quickly claimed as its redeemer. But within two years Michael Kaiser was gone. In the final part of our serialisation of his book on the Royal Opera House, Norman Lebrecht reveals why:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=r2QDm9aX&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/00/9/12/banor1.html

The anti-homosexual campaign. In its 10th year the ROH was put in jeopardy by a power struggle between David Webster, the general administrator, and his deputy, the ex-tenor Sir Steuart Wilson. The struggle came to a head when the young John Tooley was appointed in Wilson's place, says Norman Lebrecht:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=aq5JX5WJ&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/00/9/12/banor2.html

The press critic who was on the House payroll. Norman Lebrecht reports on a heavily compromised editor:

   I'm getting a little worried about this Lebrecht book - even just skimming the last 2 days' worth, I've spotted several inaccuracies, and now the name of the incoming RB artistic director isn't even spelled correctly. It rather dents my confidence in the rest of the book.

   Sarah Kaufman reviews the opening night of the Balanchine Festival in Washington with three companies on show. Miami and the Joffrey did well not to be upstaged by the Bolshoi's Nina Ananiashvili.

   In The Daily Telegraph today there is a letter replying to Norman Lebrecht's ROH privitisation article above. Go to the link below and scroll down to 'A Song and Dance'. It's from someone called Stuart Sweeney.

Oh Alison - this site is a testament to the typo! I do actually try and get things right, but I'm afraid my brain does not see the glaring problems with spelling etc that others see all too easily. But of course typos, spelling or whatever else do not alter the arguments particularly...

Doubtless the Lebrecht book is not totally correct in every last detail, but I suspect much of it will not be a million miles away from the reality and it's good that it has been written. Can't wait to get a copy!

   Why Béjart lacks London friends (Bejart's company opens a London season shortly). by Jeffery Taylor:

New stage in ENO's life. The Coliseum's renovation programme will make it a 21st-century opera house - but English National Opera cannot afford to become complacent, says Rupert Christiansen:

   Missed this one yesterday...

The Guardian Profile: Matthew Bourne.
Coming on in leaps and bounds. Shaking up the ballet world was not on the curriculum in his east London comprehensive, but with an erotically charged Swan Lake, Cinderella, and now Car Man he has shocked the old guard and pulled in new audiences. John Cunningham on the dancing master who came late to his mŽtier and his true sexuality:
Guardian Link

Todays..

All revved up. Carmen transferred to a garage in small-town America? It can only be the work of Matthew Bourne - Car Man Old Vic, London SE1. Also JazzXchange, Clore Studio Upstairs (ROH), London WC2. By Jann Parry:
Observer Link

At full throttle. Matthew Bourne's lusty film-noir take on Carmen is a sexy and inventive vehicle for Bizet's score, says DAVID DOUGILL (who also covers Ballet Atlantique at the Barbican Theatre):
