Jazz Calendar was revived by Birmingham Royal Ballet a few years ago, but on reflection I don't know how well it worked without the original cast. It was still fun though.
Among many, many others, I'd like to see a revival of Persephone which was made for Svetlana Beriosova (who spoke beautiful french as well as dancing even more beautifully) which had very distinguished designs by Nico Ghika. I think it would be a fascinating role for Guillem and I'm certain that with the positive wish to do so, it could be revived. Anthony Russell Roberts (Ashton's nephew who owns the rights) claims that the ballet is lost for ever. But then he said that about Dante Sonata and Persephone was given far more recently. Where there's a will, there's a way.......

"Capriol Suite" was danced in New York last season -- we reviewed it on DanceView Times. And people very much wanted to see it again!

That's what he told me. Admitedly that was some years ago so he may have changed his mind.
