Ballet(s) for a desert island

Recommended Posts

A comment by atm711 on the Five Top Works thread reminded me of a thread we had many moons ago that might be worth another go-round. You are cast away, a la Tom Hanks in the film of the same name. When you are not impaling fish, banging coconuts against a rock, or otherwise eking out your meager subsistence, which ballet or ballets -- you can only choose two (well, maybe three, but we have to be stern) -- would you select to while away the lonely hours? And why? (Your justifications are important, so please don't omit this last.)

As I mentioned recently on another thread, my own choice is Ashton's La Fille Mal Gardee. While its radiant vision of young love might accentuate my isolation, and the dancing chickens might make me hungry, it is also the ballet that is guaranteed to bring an unwilling smile to my face, and I can't imagine getting tired of it. Your thoughts?
