Glossy Divas and Divos

Sylvie Guillem yesterday and Roberto Bolle today: these
dancers have created a new type of ballet stardom, one that is
more akin to fashion than to art. They are good-looking, have an
admirable technique and are worshipped by the public out of a
sort of aesthetic adoration, regardless of what they are
dancing. Newspapers, TV and adverting are the bulwark of
their success. And books of photographs, which celebrate
only their physical beauty
