Agnes de MilleCentennial Plans?
Posted 22 September 2004 - 08:15 AM
Are there any plans to remember or revive her works?
Though she was attached to Ballet Theatre under Chase, I doubt ABT will mark the event. (Unless the character dances of Ashton's recent centennial have softened up the hardened ballet purists.) I suppose it also depends on the copyright status of her choreography.
-Wonder if there's a savvy Broadway producer who could put together an evening of her best work. With the recent dance oriented Broadway hits, it might be a smart move. (And more work for dancers!)
Any suggestions for an Evening of de Mille?
Those interested in a good biography, I suggest No Intermissions by Carol Easton. A fascinating, funny, infuriating lady of the dance.

Curious set design.
Also, Dancers over 40 had a panel discussion amongst former de Mille dancers.. takes a bit to get underway but some charming anecdotes:

I haven't heard any reports from my friends on Alonso's recent stagings of de Mille's "Three Virgins and a Devil" or "A Rose for Miss Emily" for the recently finished Havana Ballet Festival...
