Clement Crisp reviews Birmingham Royal Ballet's Aladdin:

It is hard to know quite what to make of David Bintley’s three-act Aladdin which Birmingham Royal Ballet has brought to London for this week. It was made for the National Ballet of Japan five years ago, its score by Carl Davis. The scenery and costumes are, respectively, by Dick Bird and Sue Blane, and any blame-laying and snook-cocking that may ensue in this commentary must not be laid at their doors (if that is what one does with blame and snooks).

Los Angeles Ballet returns to its roots for this, its seventh season, by devoting its two spring repertory programs to masterworks -- and slightly lesser ballets -- of George Balanchine.

At UCLA on Saturday, the first program featured two company premieres and two revivals, making for a mini-tour through the diverse hues of the choreographer’s rainbow oeuvre.
