This week, ABT is dancing an all-Shakespeare bill, with Frederick Ashton’s The Dream paired with Alexei Ratmansky’s The Tempest. A great night of contrasts and connections. Here’s my review for DanceTabs.
And a little taste: “Who but Frederick Ashton could turn a marital spat into one of the most delightful, touching works in the ballet repertoire? His 1964 The Dream is precisely that: a story of domestic discord that ends in perfect harmony. ”
