A few I know - I hope we can compile a larger list.

Lew Christensen's "Filling Station" is being done in program 1 at SFB, starting at the end of January.

In Paris, you can see Suite en Blanc, along with Roland Petit's L'Arlesienne and Bejart's Bolero in February. http://www.operadeparis.fr/Saison-2007-200...cle.asp?IdS=458

London is reviving works by Ashton and Macmillan this season, but not by other lesser-known choreographers.
