Image <P>'Resurrection'by Daniel Pelzig <P><BR>Anna Kisselgoff, in the New York Times, reviews the state of the art at Boston Ballet and is pleased at what she sees: <P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Ms. Holmes, however, has just given her final season a fresh start with a program of premieres. Christopher Wheeldon, principal guest choreographer, created his own version of "The Four Seasons" to Vivaldi's score; Daniel Pelzig, previously the company's resident choreographer and now a guest choreographer, used Walt Whitman's harrowing poem about the Civil War, "The Wound Dresser," as springboard for his elegiac "Resurrection," set to Samuel Barber's Concerto for Cello and Orchestra.<P>Versatility is not necessarily a virtue unto itself in a ballet troupe. But the Boston Ballet has increased its range. Under its founder, E. Virginia Williams, it was once considered a Balanchine satellite company. Under Bruce Marks, Ms. Holmes began to stage 19th-century Russian classics with the help of dancers and former directors of the Kirov Ballet in Leningrad. The Boston Ballet's superb "Swan Lake" is one of the few traditional versions on the boards, blissfully free of psychological twists.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2000/10/10/arts/10BOST.html" TARGET=_blank><B>Now read on</B></A>
