Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, May 15, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HI-RAID f. Canada's National Balht gets top marks in U.S. By AL COLLETTI NEW YORK the stagehand placed a fresh yellow rose in the prima balle- rina's dressing room. Then an- other room, another rose. Soon all the principals had single yel- low roses. It was his poignant way of saying well done to the National Ballet of Canada, appearing for the first time at the Metropoli- tan Opera House. The donor-critic remained anonymous, but ballerina Nadia Potts said the gesture was con- sidered an yellow rose for Canada. The Toronto-based company, with Rudolf Nureyev as guest artist, won over critics, au- diences and stagehands during its three-week repertory season at the Met. Nureyev, the man of steel, was on stage for 21 of the 24 performances. He did not spare himself as a dancer and he han- dled Ms ballerinas with care and courtesy. Impresario Sol Hurok put in a new floor on the MET stage for Nureyev. It had the kind of give the Russian superstar favors. Five charming young Cana- dian ballerinas were Nureyev's partners, four of them as Prin- cess Aurora in the Sleeping Beauty, staged by Nureyev and called one of the best produc- tions around. "An exquisite dream of beauty come a critic said. SWAN LAKE DANCED Danish dancer-choreographer Erik Bruhn's production of Swan Lake was the other full- length ballet in the Canadian company's repertoire. There also were two perform- ances of a mixed bill com- prising La Sylphdde, staged and partly reehoreographed by Bruhn; Jose Limon's the Moor's Pavane and Anthony Tudor's Fandango.

Aurora and Nureyev as Prince Florimund in the Sleeping Beauty wound up the Canadian stay at the Met Sunday night. The company of about 60 dancers leaves for Washington Tuesday where its 25-week tour will end with eight perform- ances at the Kennedy Centre for the Performing Arts. The dancers generally agreed that San Francisco was the most beautiful city they visited. They were impressed with the French quarter of New Orleans. In Gary, Ind., they were chap- eroned by a police helicopter. In New York, a member of the cast was robbed of in front of his hotel. CANADIAN TOUR After the company ends its Washington program May 20, it will be a well-earned holiday for the troupe, and then a fall tour of Canada. "For some of us it has been two years on the road when you count the long European Miss Tenant said. "We're all looking forward to a holiday." Frank Augustyn, who under- studied Nureyev, is going to Moscow in June with Karen Kain for the second inter- national ballet festival. Augustyn and Miss Kain, two of the most promising dancers in the company, received top marks for their performances at the Met. The 22-year-old Miss Kain as Princess Aurora, one of the most difficult in classical ballet, was. "stunning' and "impres- critic Barnes said. Augustyn was called "a very promising dancer." Barnes wrote that "he partners well, has a lovely open jump and has a way of engaging himself with the dance." Betty Grable in hospital SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) Betty Grafole contin- ues to improve after being se- riously ill with a reported duo- denal ulcer, a spokesman for St. John's Hospital said today.

OS? Ever since King Richard the Lionhearted inarched to the Holy Land to do battle against Saladin in the Crusades, the Middle East has known strong leaders. Some of them, like Rich- ard and Lawrence of Arabia and John Bagot Glubb, who led the Arab Legion in the 194-8 war, were outsiders but the land itself has also produced powerful men and women. With the death of Gamal Abdel Nasser in 1970, the Arab states were, until quite recently, left without charismatic leadership. Nasser, once an obscure military officer, burst upon the inter- national scene in 1952 when he and other of- ficers overthrew the corrupt regime of King Farouk. Although Nasser, .as an Egyptian, was not himself an Arab, he managed to create a nationalistic fervor among Arabs and Moslems which had been lost for hundreds of years. The "new" Nasser, perhaps, is Libya's ruler, Muammar Quaddafi, a young devout Mos- lem who is regarded as the most belligerent of the Arab leaders. Newly discovered oil has made Libya potentially wealthy and Quaddafi appears use the money to hurt Israel. Quaddafi has secured close political ar- rangements with Egypt and Syria and is em- erging as the No. 1 Arab leader. O O Other Arab leaders include the romantic figure of King Hussein of Jordan, considered a mod- erate arid marked for assassination by Yasser Arafat, head of the Al-Falah, the Palestinian sruerrilla movement. Egypt's president, Anwar Sadat, seems more a caretaker and defers often to Libya's Quaddafi. In Israel, the leaders appear larger than life. The grand patriarch is, of course. David Ben- Gurion, now retired to a kibbutz in the Negev Desert but once. Israel's first prime minister and a true father of his country. The nation's current prim1; minister is the most famous pupil of the public school on Milwaukee's Fourth Street, Golda Mcir. She played a key role in the found- ing of the new state end was a long-time member of Bsn-Gurion's cabinet. The folksy and street- smart Golda (by which she is universally known) was once tailed by Ben-Gurion "the very best man we've got." Who will follow the aging- -grandmother as prime minister? A strong possibility is Moshe Dayan, the defense minister who is as dramatic as the patch he wears over the eye he loft in Syria during World War II. A Sabra, or native- born Israeli, he has- a great following, in Israel because of his heroism and leadership in all three of the nation's wars with the Arabs. A commanding international figure is Abba Eban, the foreign minister. As Israel's spokesman at the United Nations, Eban stales his country's position with an awesome eloquence and bold- ness. Despite recent cooperative leaders of Arab states and factions are often at -odds. Yet it is the oil in Saudi Arabia. Kuwait and Libya which may ultimately unify the Arabs end pluca Israel's existence as a state in even greater jeop- ardy. The temperate Arab voices are few. yet persistent. As Hussein has remarked. "In '19-10, we were dealing with- Jewish emigres frcmi Europe. Now more than 50 per cent of Israelis were born in Israel. Where are they to j-o? Whether the Arabs like it or not. they must make peace with Israel." NEXT: A Return to War Christopher Plummer triumphs NEW YORK (CP) Christ- opher Plummer triumphed as a new Cyrano in an age-old ro- mance that began in a dark- ened Paris theatre in Decem- ber, 1897, when playwright Ed- mond Rostand created one of the most enduring heroes of all lime. The Toronto-born Plummer's performance in the new musical Cyrano, which opened Sunday night at the Palace Theatre on Broadway, was "simply mag- says critic Clive Barnes of The Times. "The part suits him the way a sheath suits its Barnes writes. "Mr. Plummer is most effec- tive in his development of the role, making Cyrano a postic hero rather than a roistering buffoon with a heart as big as his nose." HAD LARGE NOSE The adaptation from Ros- tand's classic, Cyrano de Ber- gerac, about an ugly gallant's sublimated romance, orbits the same entertainment course set by such hits as Man of La Man- cha and the Sound of Music, says William Glover cf The As- sociated Press. Rostand patterned his here after Savinien Cyrano de Ber- gerac, a French writer who lived from 1619 to 1655 and who possessed a formidable nose kid varied talents. A play- wright, novelist and poet, he also was known as a wit, musi- cian and philosopher. Plummer first portrayed Cy- rano at the Stratford, Ont., fes- tival 11 years ago, and in a tele- vision version he played Chris- tian to Jose Ferrer's Cyrano. The adaptation for the musi- cal was undertaken by Anthony Burgess, who has dene "an ex- cellent and. appropriately flam- boyant Barnes says. What other critics say: Douglas Watt, Daily News: "An awesomely silly musical." Richard Watts, New York Post: "I enjoyed it." SYDNEY, Australia (Reuter) Australian pop star Mike Furber, who topped the Austral- ian charts with I'm Just a Poor Boy in 1965, has been found hanged in his apartment. They added that there were no suspicious circumstances. Furber, 25, was 'recently re- placed as the star of a musical here following poor reviews. LONDON (CP) Britain's state-owned television system is deciding whether to show film of a Hell's Angels sex party made for a weekly docu- mentary program. Intended for the BBC's late- night mid-week show, the film is reported to show the sexual activities of a teen-age girl and several men dressed in the black leather and chrome-jew- elled costume of the motorcycle gang, a British group inspired by the original Hell's Angels in the United States. Seme of the action takes place indoors and sine outside, with the young woman astride a motorcycle. PARIS (Renter) family of the lats Pablo Picas- so is reported to have decided to give France a collection or his works which could be worth about 810 million. It also intends to turn his chateau at YEuvenarguss in southern France, where the painter is buried, into a mem- orial contalnn.2 about 100 of his paintings which ho had .never parted with and which ha call- ed his ''family The rr.agazir.3 says the family decided to pay death du'des of 20 per cent on an es- tate at KO million by giving Franca the paintings.
