Major vs minor works (ballets)
Posted 30 March 2004 - 11:41 AM
The person I was talking with considered that La Fille was a major work but that La Sylphide was a minor work. I argumented that for me La Sylphide was a major work due to its historical importance, and that La Fille was also a major work in Ashton's version.
I wonder if anyone agrees with me.

Sometimes "major" has to do with intent -- although there are lots of examples of accidental masterpieces. But when someone choreographs something that has "Major Work Candidate" written all over it (Robbins' "Goldberg Variations," say) that's the way it will be judged.
