Summary Less than two years after choreographer Roland Petit's death, La Scala's staging of the 1965 ballet, "Notre Dame de Paris", gives the opportunity to re-examine what is considered one of his masterpieces. This Notre-Dame moves on from 19th-century ballet versions of Victor Hugo's novel to tell a streamlined, rather less sentimental story. The score by Maurice Jarre is relentlessly dark and Yves Saint Laurent's costumes range from simple, colourful tunics to Quasimodo's grey cloak. Italian star Roberto Bolle is Quasimodo opposite Natalia Osipova, the former Bolshoi star's Esmeralda, who performs gravity-defying leaps for which she is famous. (From Italy) (Arts/Ballet) (Rpt) G
