Dancers who convey a rich inner life are as fascinating as they are rare--and the recast Royal Ballet "Ravel Evening" offered a prime example in Sarah Wildor, Friday at the Orange County Performing Arts Center. Dancing one of the unnamed leads in Kenneth MacMillan's "La Fin du Jour," she matched her scrupulous attention to the choreographic text with an ability to put her signature on the role: subtle, mysterious, shaped from within.

She arrived from London, with a contingent of fellow Royal Ballet members, late Friday, the night before an interview and only a few days before their six-day engagement at the Orange County Performing Arts Center. After a reunion with her boyfriend--ex-Royal dancer Adam Cooper, who drove from L.A.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Elaine Stritch are among the nominees for the 27th annual Laurence Olivier Awards, London's equivalent of the Tonys. The starriest show of the season -- David Hare's "The Breath of Life," with the country's leading theatrical dames, Judi Dench and Maggie Smith -- received no nominations Thursday. Also snubbed during a London theater year rife with American actors were Glenn Close, Jake Gyllenhaal, and the American principals of the musical import "The Full Monty."

Amid the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle nominees, a perplexing number of omissions raised my eyebrows, as well as the question of just exactly how does this august body arrive at its choices (" 'Madness!,' 'Pigs' Top L.A. Drama Critics Circle Nods," by Don Shirley, Feb. 9)? The absence of either Michael Cerveris in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" or Sarah Wildor in "Cinderella" as outstanding lead performances borders on the inexplicable, and the bemusing lack of an ensemble performance category ignores the unimprovable company of "Light Up the Sky," not to mention several productions that were actually nominated.

The strength of a new work can be proved in a different way when another cast takes over the principal roles. In the case of four changes in Matthew Bourne's "Cinderella" on Thursday at the Ahmanson Theatre, there was perhaps less glamour and idealized star power than on Wednesday's opening night, but that made for a more audience-embracing humanism in the end. Saranne Curtin was an innocent, sweet-natured and imaginative Cinderella.

The ballets that Frederick Ashton created for Anthony Dowell took the art of classical partnering to new levels of sophistication--levels that dancers after Dowell have not always found congenial. In the final two Royal Ballet performances of Ashton's "The Dream," Sunday at the Orange County Performing Arts Center, two otherwise fine Oberons ultimately came to grief in the great "Nocturne" pas de deux that crowns the work.

The other "Titanic"--the Tony-winning musical--will begin its national tour at the Ahmanson Theatre in January. The 1998-99 Ahmanson season also will include a new musical tribute to Bob Fosse, the only U.S. engagement of the ballet "Cinderella" as choreographed by Matthew Bourne (who created the Ahmanson's recent "Swan Lake") and a home-grown staging of a Shakespeare play by legendary British director Peter Hall.

Who says long-distance relationships don't work? What about the bicoastal romance between some of the country's top Democrats and Hollywood? The dean of Democrats, Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy, sailed through town this week with his wife, Victoria, to renew old ties with the creative community, whose rights he's been representing in Congress. Of course, being consummate dates, Angelenos are picking up the check.

The newly renamed Performing Arts Center of Los Angeles County (a.k.a. the Music Center) again programmed a mere handful of concert dance performances; the Luckman Complex at Cal State L.A. cut back on dance; and Occidental College abandoned it entirely.
