David Vaughan's Chronology of Ballets from his book, "Frederick Ashton and His Ballets" is now on line!
Lincoln Center is celebrating the 100th birthday of Sir Frederick Ashton this summer, presenting four companies—Birmingham Royal Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, K-Ballet, and the Royal Ballet—in 11 programs of 16 ballets. From 1949 until the late 1970s, Ashton was one of New York's favorite choreographers. For the past 30 years, though, his work has seldom been seen on this side of the Atlantic. Because many dance fans may be unfamiliar with Britain's master choreographer and his works, danceviewtimes offers a special preview section, with articles about the choreographer and his ballets. We've also included several articles, interviews and reviews about Ashton and his work that have appeared in DanceView magazine over the past decade. Scroll down for the table of contents.
For more information and to purchase tickets, go to the Lincoln Center website.
we'll be adding to the section for the next several daysl. Links will
be activated as the articles go up. We will also be reviewing each program
and putting up the reviews as soon as possible. Please check back
frequently for new material.
