I Solution time: 26 min. J '4 As Cincinnati Ballet begins rehearsals this week for its 1991-92 season, here's a look at the two artists leading the company: Nigel Burgoine, acting artistic director Burgoine, 37, has known Richard Collins for 20 years. "I saw him in London last year and he asked me to come and see the company. I came over last Christmas and I liked what I saw." Collins invited Burgoine to join the company as ballet master and director of education. Burgoine was in Cincinnati less than a week when Collins was injured in an auto accident. Friday, the ballet board asked Burgoine to step in as acting artistic director. A native of London, Burgoine attended the Royal Ballet Scnool and was a principal dancer with the London Festival Ballet. Among his many roles: Prince Siegfried in Swan Lake, Hilarion in Giselle, Alfredo in Rosalinda and Gum in La Sylphide. He has directed education and outreach programs for the London City Ballet and the Dallas Ballet. "Now I have three jobs to do, but education will still be a main objective," Burgoine says. "What we want to do is . . . go into all the schools in the area and give the children a complete breakdown on what ballet Is all about and how a professional dancer works so they won't be afraid to come to the ballet." Johanna Bernstein Wilt, ballet mistress As Johanna Bernstein Wilt, 34, begins her 11th season with the Cincinnati Ballet, she will not only dance in the corps de ballet but will be the ballet mistress as well. "My main responsibility will be learning the repertory, rehearsing the corps, putting up schedules, making sure everything runs smoothly and assisting Nigel." Bernstein Wilt grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and studied at the The Cincinnati EnquirerTony Jones Nigel Burgoine, acting artistic director, practices with members of the Cincinnati Baljet. raDAVllTriplASISEID' CANADA A B R A D E JR O N I cTl IR A I DEf G I E N fc M I Clf" R 13 I N N DA T a"P H (b S I"- '"-j K O SOC" U B TWa" TOM L N T Em" R O G ATT I V E D O R A O n "Ffclc" aw P"" RjMpiS O RJOI'",1"1""'!

Reorganizing the administrative staff, making budget cuts and announcing a season full of favorites, the company was aiming to start turning around its financial woes and gear up for Richard Collins' first season as solo artistic director. ' But as the curtain goes up today on the season's first rehearsals, the dancers' spirits aren't where they hoped they'd be. Because Collins can't make it. Head injuries from a one-car accident Wednesday afternoon have him listed in critical condition at the University of Kentucky Medical Center,' Lexington. State police reports say that Collins lost control of his car, which then flipped several times, when trying to avoid a tractor trailor that had changed lanes. The extent of Collins' injuries and the length of his time away can't be determined yet, but for the short term, things are in place for the season to go on as planned. The company has two things working in its favor until the end of this year: One, the season's first ballet is The Great Gatsby, by guest choreographer Andre Prokovsky, who's long been scheduled to spend a six-week residency with the company, starting this week. Prokovsky has worked with these dancers and Collins previously, having most recently choreographed A Woman in New York School of Ballet, the American Dance Festival, Ohio State director isn't around, the responsibility goes on the ballet master's shoulders." Some of this season's negotiations still need to be completed, but Burgoine explained, "Luckily, I don't have to sit down and make a lot of decisions. The repertory has been planned. All I have to do is see that it is rehearsed correctly, that it looks good on stage, and the dancers are content." Continuity helps Ballet Mistress Johanna Bernstein Wilt says that the company already has the advantage of continuity. "The company has the structure set up right now that we can continue, and everybody here knows each other. We're not a brand-new company, and that helps tremendously. The people here want to make it work." Wilt herself is new to her artistic position, though is no stranger to what Collins likes to stress onstage and in class, having worked with him since his arrival in Cincinnati. How this will affect the company's efforts to get finances under control is unclear, with instability never an incentive for investors. Yet the company's structure this year is far ahead of where it was last year, in the chaos of then-director Ivan Nagy's abrupt departure, the announcement of the company's serious deficit and no executive director. This year, however, under the guidance of executive director Paul A. Stuhlreyer III, the company has made budget cuts and set more realistic long-range plans. In addition to the immediate challenges, there are a lot of other things that an artistic director like Collins has going on, aside from providing a single artistic vision for the company. Things like planning and negotiating for next season, collaborating with other companies, in-school programs and other special projects. So between teaching and rehearsing the company, Burgoine will have to pick up a lot of other duties. This isn't the smooth start for which Cincinnati Ballet had hoped, but the company expects to step into the season gracefully.

When North showed some values in response to South's cue-bid, South proceeded to slam via the quickest route. West led the ace of hearts, and dummy was a great disappointment. The king-queen of hearts were, to all intents and purposes, completely useless. There was not even an entry to the table for the trump finesse. However, West continued with a heart, and declarer not only was able to discard a club on the heart king, but found himself on the table for a trump finesse. Hazen duly led the nine of spades, but paused to think before committing to the finesse. West was an expert defender who had to know that Hazen would never have leaped to slam holding two fast heart losers. Therefore, there was no way for declarer to get to dummy to take the trump finesse. Why, then, had West so conveniently provided an entry to the board?

This deal, played many years ago by the late Lee Hazen in the Masters Individual, reminds us of the story of a foreigner who arrived at Kennedy Airport and helped a lady who was struggling with her bags. "Why are you being so good to me?" she asked. In his best English the Samaritan replied: "Madam, I am good for nothing."

So Hazen spurned the finesse, shot up with the ace of spades and landed the slam when the king came tumbling down. Word game Words must be tour or more letters. 2.
