Thanks for this information, David. It was great seeing BRB's revival of "The Prospect before us" several years ago and the RB's "The Rake's Progress" a couple of years ago, but it would be good to see more of her output, given that so much of it is high quality work, apart from her significance in the history of ballet in the UK.
