Dance programs on cable

Recently I saw Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker on Trio, and the Ovation channel broadcast three British shows from a few years ago -- a tribute to Markova on the occasion of her 90th birthday, an interview with Fokine's granddaughter, and MacMillan's The Judas Tree, with Mukhamedov and Leanne Benjamin.

I knew little about The Judas Tree before seeing it, except that it was by MacMillan. When I saw how Benjamin was dressed and all the men, I braced myself for an all out MacMillan gangbang. Wasn't far wrong. Interesting viewing in conjunction with the Markova interview; I could imagine Dame Alicia saying to herself, "Well, thank goodness Pat and I never had to do THAT." :D Times have changed.

Thanks for the laugh dirac :D

All out MacMillan gangbang pretty much describes another ballet of his that I dislike, Triad.
