English National Ballet’s out-spoken and media-savvy artistic director Rojo is 18 months into the post and doing a fine job. Having pinched principal ballerina Alina Cojocaru from the Royal Ballet, ENB now boasts an impressive roster of talent. Highlights included a new staging of Le Corsaire. This year Rojo will reunite with Carlos Acosta to dance Romeo and Juliet at the Royal Albert Hall.

The New Mexico Ballet Company presents "Don Quixote."

The Philharmonic will play Ludwig Minkus’ original ballet music. His music is probably less familiar to the orchestra’s musicians than Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky’s music for “The Nutcracker” ballet or Sergei Prokofiev’s music for the “Romeo and Juliet” ballet, said Grant Cooper, who is guest-conducting the Philharmonic.

“But the music of Minkus is very straightforward, classic middle-of-the-19th-century ballet music,” Cooper said. “The music is characterized by extremely regular metrical structure. That is to say it is easy to count and keep track of. It is also music that is extremely melodious, which means there is an obvious emphasis on the melody and its accompaniment.”
