was hoping to read the article on abt's guesting policy - partic interested in attitude to Vadim (& hoping & praying that he is not going to be tempted to do a Semionova) but cannot get beyond first page on which Cojocaru & Osipova are discussed - does anyone know what the rest says - what would subscription entail or is it a schlepp down to whs to stand and have a read?

Actually the article doesn't discuss much the guesting policy, except to deplore the situation regarding Misty Copeland whom Acoccella considers should be a principal, but is not because there are too many guest principals. The bulk of it discusses the opposing styles of Cojocaru and Osipova : Cojocaru being a great actress, but with week feet, reminding her of Fonteyn ; Osipova as technically very solid but less interesting dramatically ("Osipova is almost the opposite of Cojocaru - much more strong, much less wise").

There is no mention of Muntagirov, and the article is not very long (5 pages on the ipad version, including the picture), and I haven't found any way to share it digitally with non-subcribers).

A pity Zoë Anderson didn't see the cast change slip for An Intimate Evening with Anna Pavlova. She would have found out that there was a printing error in the programme and that Bacchanale was choreographed by Ursula Hageli (and not Liam Scarlett). In addition, Meaghan Grace Hinkis was not Pavlova in this piece. She had been replaced by Emma Maguire.

We didn't get a cast change slip either but had spotted the changes of dancer. Thanks for the head-up on Hageli's choreography.

Something worth highlighting from the Tobi Tobias piece: "No one will ever replace the veteran artist Frederic Franklin as Friar Laurence but, having recently reached the age of 98, he has relinquished the part."
