John Neumeier doesn't know "who started the rumor" that all children should avoid seeing his ballet "The Little Mermaid. " But he suspects that the culprits might be big fans of the exuberant 1989 animated Disney film that made the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale synonymous with spunky, red-haired Ariel and the crab Sebastian singing "Under the Sea. " "My ballet doesn't have the sweet aftertaste of the Disney film, and there are moments of...

Playing the heroes in floridly dramatic story ballets isn't always easy for contemporary dancers, but the Stuttgart Ballet had several success stories when new principals took over in its sumptuous and satisfying "Onegin" at the Orange County Performing Arts Center over the weekend.

Imaginative in its blending of a wide range of movement resources -- pantomime, gymnastics, character dance, theatricalized folklore and, of course, classical ballet -- John Cranko's three-act "Romeo and Juliet" has long been a staple of the international repertory.

The so-called Stuttgart Ballet "miracle" of the late 1960s and early '70s came from finding a classical company of great warmth and freshness in a southwest German burg familiar only to ballet historians with long memories or specialists in the production of wines, books and cars.

Seven must be somebody's lucky number in Germany's Stuttgart Ballet, for the company gambled on the U.S. premieres of Christian Spuck's "the seventh blue," Uwe Scholz's "Seventh Symphony" and Douglas Lee's seven-dancer "Cindys Gift" as its opening program at the Orange County Performing Arts Center on Tuesday. Created between 1991 and 2002, these home-grown Stuttgart sevens neatly recapped but did not extend or deepen familiar end-of-the century classical game plans.

Back in 1965, when John Cranko choreographed "Onegin" for the Stuttgart Ballet, the most expedient way to extend the 19th century classical tradition and repertory seemed to be fashioning full-length narrative works loosely modeled on 19th century operas. Such efforts as "Onegin" and Kenneth MacMillan's "Manon" (1974) went on to become international repertory staples, while others such as Peter Darrell's "Tales of Hoffmann" (1972) and Cranko's own "Carmen" (1971) proved less enduring.
