It's a great pity that they did not choose to feature more Ashton repertoire on their recent U.S. tour. If they did perform it, the press overlooked it in favor of the sensationalistic elements of Edward II. The U.S. public is in need of an Ashton infusion; they don't see it/don't know it/don't get it. I haven't read a good review of Enigma from anyone in awhile. Does Royal Ballet do this work with consistency?

I think if BRB had brought Ashton's Enigma Variations to New York, it would have saved the company from the bad reviews about "Edward II". Knowing the New York public's fondness for Ashton's works, it was incomprehensible that BRB didn't include at least one in its triple bill.<P>I found another review on BRB (as well as Twyla Tharp) by Tobi Tobias of New York Magazine. <A HREF="http://www.newyorkmag.com/page.cfm?page_id=3925" TARGET=_blank>http://www.newyorkmag.com/page.cfm?page_id=3925</A> <P><p>[This message has been edited by Kevin Ng (edited October 22, 2000).]

All tickets are £10 ($14)- what a great idea.
