The Royal Spanish National Ballet opened a five-day run Tuesday at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa, showcasing principals who were not reviewed during the company's appearances last week in Los Angeles. In the title role of Jose Granero's "Medea," Ana Gonzalez seemed bound within all-too-human dimensions and evoked nothing more tragic than a Spanish version of "Cavalleria Rusticana."

Regarding the performance of the Royal Spanish National Ballet at the Greek Theatre (reviewed by Lewis Segal, July 28): After buying a ticket well in advance at the Oxnard Ticketron, I drove to the Greek for the July matinee and found a sign saying the performance was canceled and that refunds could be obtained at the point of ticket purchase. I then drove to the Oxnard Ticketron and found a sign saying that the office had closed and giving addresses in Camarillo and Ventura. I got back on the freeway and went to the Ventura address (Jailhouse Records)
