On topic? I'm thinking it would take an Ashton to get something like Pushkin onto the ballet stage.

You're right - Ashton definitely would have come closer... And the Balanchine sequence from "One Your Toes" was hardly without gunfire.

OT again - there's a whole section in the novel where Pushkin as a character goes to the ballet (Eugene has left and gone home) and a wistful meditation on the beats of ballet dancers' small feet, followed by six stanzas ("the Pedal Digression": Nabokov) on ballroom dancers' feet: "in my sleep they [still] disturb my heart".
