The most famous story about Ashley's performance is that, years after the premiere, her partner was seriously injured during a performance and she finished the ballet without him.

many regular ballet goers began to find a lot more in it than seemed initially to be there. (This isn't unusual with Balanchine.
You know, this is something I have realized myself (having seen Balanchine "live" at the NY State Theater only one ocassion in my life, for 3 performances). When I first saw "Diamond" I saw Wendy Wheelan, and it was outstanding: I could see how cleverly Balanchine had quoted ballets such as Swan Lake, Don Q (yes I see Don Q in the passe promenade!!!), Raymonda (hand over the bun), Nutcracker (developpe a la seconde, back to the audience) but that was it. Then I got the tape with Farrell, and could see so much more: the subtleties in his looking (or not) at his partner, her playing with balances. And I hope to see much more still
