Comprehensive, live coverage of Pacific Northwest Ballet's tour to London, including previews, reviews, interviews and daily diaries

“Sadler’s Wells is one of the best theatres we've performed in. It’s fabulous for dance. The close proximity of audience to dancer provides an intimate experience for everyone. We were well received by London dance fans on our last visit, although there were two rather different crowds in attendance for Midsummer vs. the mixed bill. The student crowd was loudly appreciative of the mixed bill, more like a crowd we’d experience in the States. Our relationship with the London audience is too new to really describe it. I've heard that the summer audience is different than the rest of the Season, so it will be interesting to find out!” more

sfb in london • 13-18 august 2001
Unprecedented comprehensive, live coverage of San Francisco Ballet's triumphant tour to London, including previews, reviews, interviews and diaries

"Helgi Tomasson (Artistic Director of SFB) was ambitious in his programming, staging many different pieces by different choreographers and even bringing works by two of his own dancers. He treated the London audience as a mature bunch of discerning but open-minded individuals, and it paid off. When we were unceremoniously ejected onto the street on Thursday while one of the dancers was baking his or her potato in a manner that threatened to turn the Opera House into one big microwave oven, I was able to take stock of the week and listen to the animated voices around me, eager to get back to their seats for Mark Morris’ Sandpaper Ballet. (By the way, who was that dancer? Own up. Britons love a little tabloid journalism however ‘well-heeled’ they are.)" more
