Poll: What is your favourite full length piece of Frederick Ashton choreography?

10 January 2000

What a soft lot we are - every time we take the happy ending!


Well as a result it all makes perfect sense to me, though I would like to see the Ashton R&J back in the country again. It would be terrible for us to loose touch with it totally.

   I certainly agree that I'd hate to lose the Ashton R&J (Derek Deane, are you listening?), as in many ways I prefer it to, for instance, the MacMillan (strangely enough, given the reputations of the two choreographers, I find the Ashton rather more effective dramatically at the points that count! - or perhaps it's just the quality of the performances I've seen over the years - certainly I don't remember ever being moved to tears by a MacMillan Juliet, and I'm usually a sucker for sad endings).

   I am also a great fan of Ashtons' Romeo & Juliet and have enjoyed in particular the performances of Josephine Jewkes as Juliet.

   Practically every one I know who has seen Cranko's R and J and MacMillan says Cranko's version is better. Can anyone here give their views on this?

   Well, I thought Trinidad Sevillano was excellent (about half a dozen times!) in it - she's the only one who's moved me to tears. I seem to remember Jo being very good, but my main memories of the performance were of the weather - stifling hot in the Coliseum, which made it difficult to concentrate on the on-stage action.
