Let's dance ...

... Ballet? Never Heard of It.

My own personal complaint about ballet is that companies rarely undertake to do classic scores, preferring instead to adapt something not originally written for dance - the Mendelssohn violin concerto, for instance. I'd love to see a staging of Debussy's Jeux or Roussel's The Spider's Feast or Piston's The Incredible Flutist ... I could go on and on. But ballet companies don't seem interested. Strange, because it seems to me they would attract a lot of music lovers.
