The Four Seasons (Hindle) (new commission from former BRB dancer) / Prodigal son (Balanchine) / In the Upper Room (Tharp)

8 - 11 June 2005 Stravinsky programme

Duo Concertante (Balanchine) / Scenes de Ballet (Ashton) / The Rite of Spring (Hodson Archer reconstructed version, sets and costumes loaned from the Joffrey Ballet)

17 - 18 June 2005

Allegri Diversi (Bintley) / Broullards (Cranko) (not done by the company since 1981) / Elite Syncopations (MacMillan)

This is just what's on in Birmingham - they are also touring, and The Two Pigeons (Ashton) and Western Symphony and the Bintley triple come to London in late October.

This is an usually large amount of mixed bills for a British company to put on at present - I hope they sell well.

Thank you, Lynette. This would be a large number of triple bills for many American companies, too -- maybe it will start a trend!
