Actually, he has made 'Sergeant's Early Dream', but that seems to me that it is based more in a Celtic setting rather than an English village.<P>Christopher Hampson has made 'Country Garden' for English National Ballet to music by Percy Grainger which comes closest to your concept Azlan. I suspect that it would go down big with US anglophiles.

<I>Sergeant Early's Dream</I> was definitely a winner in SF, when SFB did it. Several years ago (at SFB's premiere), I remember being mesmerized by the "child dancer," not realizing until later that it was Diablo Ballet's Erika Johnson guesting with SFB and who had originated the part at Houston Ballet.<P>Also, while we're on the subject of Christopher Bruce-SF connections, there is a restaurant called The Rooster in the Mission District. I have it on good authority that Mr Bruce ate there once. Image I highly recommend its Asian-European fusion cuisine.<P>We keep getting back to food, don't we...
