Review in The Independent.

You should always listen to the boss. The composer Carl Davis, having written successful scores for Christopher Gable's Northern Ballet Theatre, tried to persuade him that they should collaborate on Pride and Prejudice, and was turned down. Gable was right: wonderful novel, impossible ballet. But Davis went on to compose for the celebrated television adaptation of the book, and has now used his quite jolly music as the basis of a short work for Ballet Central, the touring company of senior students at the Central School of Ballet, also founded by Gable. They gave it in this gala performance at Covent Garden's Linbury Theatre and, I'm sorry to say, confirmed its unsuitability as a dance subject.
