Few people would deny that Tchaikovsky is one of the greatest composers of music for dance. But what about Maurice Ravel? He's better known for his concert works, but Ravel wrote "Daphnis et Chloe" for the Ballets Russes de Serge Diaghilev on a scenario by Mikhail Fokine, who choreographed it in 1912. Ravel turned two of his piano works--"Ma Mere l'Oye" and "Valse Nobles et Sentimentales"--into ballet scores. His famous (or infamous) "Bolero" was composed as a dance for Ida Rubinstein.

A production closely modeled on the original Petipa-Ivanov "Swan Lake" by the Royal Ballet of Great Britain in August and the world premiere of a new "Nutcracker" by American Ballet Theatre highlight the 1991-92 dance season, announced today in Costa Mesa. The new staging of "Nutcracker" for ABT will be Nov. 29-Dec. 8. The ABT will also return in February, 1992. There will also be a return engagement of the National Ballet of Canada, Oct. 8-13, 1991.

Anthony Dowell, artistic director of Great Britain's Royal Ballet, likes to describe the company as "very versatile," and the description truly seems apt. The Royal's current engagement, through May 8 at the Orange County Performing Arts Center, presents a broader range of subjects than most first-rate companies might muster--drug- and sex-obsessed royalty, gang rapists, whimsical animal characters and Shakespearean elfin comedy.

Royal Ballet will whisk audiences back to 1895 when it unveils its production of "Swan Lake" on Tuesday at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa. "I wanted to uncover a version as near the beginnings as I could possibly find," says Anthony Dowell, artistic director of the Royal. "I am a great believer that in a work such as 'Swan Lake,' which has been around for a long time, the creators must have been pretty good at what they did when it was first done."

A decade ago, the consensus on the Royal Ballet was that it was in the doldrums. Artistic standards for the premier British company had dropped, and the company was beset with financial and management problems. But thanks to an influx of imported dancers, it's a different Royal that is touring the United States these days. The company's engagement at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa through Sunday is part of the Royal's first U.S. tour in eight years.

A decade ago, the consensus on the Royal Ballet was that it was in the doldrums. Artistic standards for the premier British company had dropped, and the company was beset with financial and management problems. All that seems to have been turned around, though. It's a revitalized Royal that is touring the United States these days, critics say.

Forget that the Royal Ballet is British. Its two starriest eminences happen to be that Bolshoi firebrand, Irek Mukhamedov, and Parisian etoile Sylvie Guillem. But the long-legged gamine, who could be called "the Greta Garbo of ballet," will not appear with London's Covent Garden company for its weeklong run at the Orange County Performing Arts Center starting Aug. 6.

Your editorial "Unlimited Tribute? No Way" (Jan. 5) sorely misses the point. The Times ignores that the Coliseum Commission reneged on its promises to improve the Coliseum that the Raiders relied upon when they moved to Los Angeles in the first place. The commission then insulted the public's intelligence and pocketbooks by incurring substantial attorneys fees in suing the Raiders for threatening to leave Los Angeles.

Four years ago, Irek Mukhamedov was the much-anticipated new star whose dynamic leaps and bold stage presence captivated audiences during the Bolshoi Ballet's U.S. tour. Hurling his muscular body through seemingly impossible tricks with boyish eagerness, the darkly handsome dancer was the natural heir to the long line of bravura Bolshoi men.
