Deborah Jowitt ponders the programming issue as well:<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B><A HREF="" TARGET=_blank>Rituals—Manhattan, Rochester, Taiwan</A><BR>World Beats</B><BR>by Deborah Jowitt, The Village Voice<P>It's a mystery how ballet companies decide which works to program. During American Ballet Theatre's annual fall season at City Center, which ended on Sunday, two premieres—Christian Holder's Weren't We Fools and Natalie Weir's Jabula—received five performances apiece. Balanchine's Theme and Variations graced seven programs and Graham's Diversion of Angels six. Antony Tudor's great Jardin aux Lilas was performed only three times—all at matinees. Twyla Tharp? Not present. Go figure.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><B><A HREF="" TARGET=_blank>The full article</A></B>
