Post subject:  BRB's Second Ashton programme

Image <P>photo Dee Conway<P><BR>A generally positive review of the second of the two Birmingham Royal Ballet Ashton Triple Bills. I'm particularly intrigued by 'Dante Sonata', which sounds like a very different style from what one would expect from Ashton. <P> <A HREF="http://www.the-times.co.uk/news/pages/tim/00/04/17/timartdan02002.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.the-times.co.uk/news/pages/tim/00/04/17/timartdan02002.html</A> <P>Judith Mackrell's review is polite about Ashton's intentions in 'Dante Sonata', but suggests that it is of historical inteterest rather than artistic brilliance. She briefly applauds the other two works in the programme, 'Enigma Variations' and 'Scenes de Ballet'. <BR> <A HREF="http://www.guardianunlimited.co.uk/reviews/story/0,3604,210393,00.html" TARGET=_blank>www.guardianunlimited.co.uk/reviews/story/0,3604,210393,00.html</A> <P><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited April 17, 2000).]
