  1. The reference above to Ib Andersen's "quicksilver beats" evokes vivid memories of my first viewings of this ballet. I will never forget the incredible clarity and speed of Andersen's feet, along with his light, effortless jumps. God, he was thrilling.
  2. OMG -- I did mean the Gigue. Please forgive.
  3. I love this ballet, especially the variations for the two principals, but the fugue seems to have been shoe-horned in, and the pas de quatre to the minuet has a feeling of not really belonging. Both seem to be there because the music is there, rather than "belonging" to the dance. Does anybody agree?
