In favor of the dancers I must say that they are accomplished performers and dance with great commitment to what is basically mediocre work. We see so much of that these days - dedicated artists dancing their hearts out to so-so choreography. The sad thing is that dancers don't even realize how trivial the work is because many of them have never danced or even seen really good work.
That sure sums up the age!!!
Thanks for that report, Balletbuddy. I've only seen two of Mills's pieces, a "Midsummer," which I thought was very after-Balanchine, but quite acceptable as a small company version, and "Taming of the Shrew" which I thought was absolutely awful! (Non-funny jokes, simplistic, repetitive choreography.)
