Miyako Yoshida in Brahms Handel Variations.

Peter Wright’s Sleeping Beauty was a sumptuous spectacle. Hundreds oi courtly ligures adorned the stage, men in high heels and wigs, women with huge trains, set against a pink and rust-coloured backdrop shot with gilt. Minutely detailed costumes, set somewhere around the early 18th century were appropriately upgraded 100 years tor the linal scenes. It looked Iantastic, like a Renaissance painting. However, the dancing itsell iaded into the background, the narrative told

through gesture and symbol rather than expressive movement, though Sleeping Beauty Miyako Yoshida‘s elegance and poise appropriately shone her colleagues oil the stage. More like a series 01 pretty paintings than a story, the production was dragging its heels by the linal scene. The second at Birmingham Royal Ballet’s two programmes included three well contrasted pieces. David Blintley’s ditticult Brahms' Handel Variations set itsell a cracking pace and was danced with spirit and skill. Any minor stumbles were swept along with the momentum of Blintley's elegant vision at Brahms' score. Balanchine’s Symphony In Three Movements was equally well executed. A curious, somehow dated piece, it bears the unmistakable stamp 01 Balanchine's original and masterful eye, with striking, unlussy choreography matched by bold set and costume design. Finally Elite Syncopations is a comic ballet with a wide appeal. With music by Scott Joplin, the jazzy score is matched by jazzy costumes. There is nothing original or choreographically striking about this piece, but it sent people rolling down the aisles. (Jo Roe)
