In his article in the NY Times, Jack Anderson compares abstract and narrative ballets, finding failings in both. I thought his comment on Balanchine's abstract ballets interesting. "...devoid of narrative, can be kinetic revelations of love, longing, fear, struggle, aspiration. In contrast other abstract choreographers merely string steps together." <A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/yr/mo/day/artleisure/ballet-style.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.nytimes.com/yr/mo/day/artleisure/ballet-style.html</A> <P>While I certainly agree with him regarding Balanchine, I don't think ALL absract ballet choreographers fail in this regard.<p>[This message has been edited by Maggie (edited August 30, 2000).]
