Program notes

The great choreographer Sir Frederick Ashton (1904-1988) did not just bear witness to decades of transformations, revolutions and innovations in ballet—he was one of the most prominent architects of the new landscape. Director of the Royal Ballet for almost forty years and choreographer of nearly a hundred ballets, he was an artist of vision and character, qualities that come through beautifully in this sumptuous triple program.
