Clairemarie Osta appears as Roland Petit’s Carmen, partnered by Nicholas Le Riche. Le Riche appears in two more Petit ballets: Le Jeune homme et la mort, with Marie-Agnès Gillot, and in Notre-Dame de Paris, with Isabelle Guérin, Laurent Hilaire and Manuel Legris. TDK have kindly given us three sets, to be won by lucky Dancing Times readers. To win a set, please see page 7 of the latest issue of Dancing Times.
