I was looking at the BRB's 2011-12 season and -- wow -- they sure perform a lot of Ashton. Symphonic Variations (October), Daphnis and Chloe (February-March), The Two Pigeons (February-March) and The Dream (June) -- has BRB become the true home of Ashton in this world???

I think it's swings and roundabouts. A couple of years ago we had lots of Balanchine and now we've got lots of Ashton, not to mention works galore by David Bintley (Hobson's Choice is a particular meisterwork IMHO) and other choreographers. Fans of BRB are very lucky bunnies!

I've just seen three performances of BRB's Autumn Glory comprising de Valois' Checkmate, Ashton's sublime Symphonic Variations and Cranko's Pineapple Poll. It was a real blast of the company's heritage.

All the performances were excellent but Friday evening's Symphonic Variations was truly outstanding. The dancers were: Natasha Oughtred, Nao Sakuma, Elisha Willis, Joe Caley, Chi Cao and Cesar Morales. It was sheer bliss to watch.
