We've discussed this solo recently I think (or perhaps in was on Ballet.Co). Surely this is the solo danced by Zoltan Solymosi on the recent Royal Ballet video of SB (with Viviana Durante as Aurora)? I seem to remember saying that it was the only time I had liked Solymosi.

I also don't remember Ashton getting any choreographic credit....I really dislike Macmillan's messing around with the grand pas choreography....I'll go watch it again if you tell me where to look----

I've now watched my video of the RB's 'Beauty' (1996?)and the solo I'm referring to takes place in Act II at the end of the hunting scene and just before the 'vision' scene. Prince Florimund is alone and sad and he dances this beautiful slow solo to music that I ought to recognize. Although the credits at the end mention only Petipa choreography with 'additions' by Ashton and MacMillan, the piece looks very Ashtonian to me. It's certainly far more lyrical than any Petipa solo created for a man that I've ever seen.
