"A very interesting point by Clement Crisp"
 
   In his review of Giselle Crisp remarks that the Royal Ballet production's are tremendously detailed. Every person on stage has some role to play when they are not dancing (such as talking to their friends, etc). This is gives the setting a more naturalistic feel to it.

I think the RB do this more then anyone else. However this must take up an enormous amount of rehearsal time. Perhaps it is worth sacrificing a bit of detail for some more rehearsals of the dance scenes. What do other people think?

   I don't think I can agree. There are a lot of companies around, apart from the RB, such as BRB and NB who pay a lot of attention to dramatic technique which represents a natural part of their training without sacrificing rehearsal time. And young ballet graduates from such as Central School and London Studio Centre seem to be carrying the flag for this without.
