"Symphonic Variations"
 
  
We really need another topic apart from 'POB' here, so:

I recently posted enquiring about Ashton's 'Symphonic Variations' and was devasted to find that performances both by the RB and BRB had taken place without my noticing them! I cannot imagine how this happened as I've been longing to see it ever since catching a tantalising glimpse on film back at the wonderful Ashton conference in 1994. I know the RB is going to be doing it in March, but unfortunately I'll be in Australia then, and anyway there are only going to be a measly three performances.

Does anyone know what the chances are that they will revive it next season? Or put on an extra performance in April? (I'll be back from Australia then, Mr Kaiser sir...).

   Ann, I'd say chance of an extra performance in April: nil; chance of a revival next season: 20%.
You may have to wait till 2004, for the major retrospective Ashton Festival to mark the centenary of his birth, which no doubt the RB is already planning...

Thanks for this information. I'm delighted that there is going to be an Ashton retrospective, albeit in four years time! May I ask where you got this information? I haven't seen it anywhere else, though given my history with 'Symphonic' perhaps this isn't surprising.

   Ann, I'm afraid it's just wishful thinking - I can't believe they would let the centenary pass without some sort of festival, but with the RB you never know. Maybe the new director will make it an early prioroty?
