Monotones II will be part of an intriguing programme of brief pieces the BRB dancers are to present in Durham and Middlesbrough.
The Durham programme consists of Dumbarton Oaks, a new work to music by Stravinsky choreographed by BRB soloist Michael Kopinski; Duo Concertante, another Stravinsky-scored piece by George Balanchine; Five Tangos by Hans van Manen; and, of course, Monotones II.
The first week the Joffrey Ballet performs A Wedding Bouquet (with Maia Wilkins), Monotones
I and II, and Les Patineurs.
NBC revived the full Monotones
earlier this year among its fiftieth-anniversary performances and performed Fille last November in Toronto--affording Mr.
I and II (1965) and the 1844 La Vivandiere Pas de Six were enhanced by the technical excellence of the Joffrey dancers.
That made for wonderful dynamics as the program moved from the muted Shakespearean magic of The Dream, through the cool, sculptural attitudes of Monotones, then finally, with A Month, to Turgenev's bittersweet comedy of manners.
Monotones I was a trifle shaky on opening night but the Apollonian alternate cast of Yseult Lendvai, Stacey Shiori Minagawa, and Jeremy Ransom was completely assured.
As a rising star with Joffrey Ballet, Maynard danced in diverse works by Gerald Arpino and Robert Joffrey and especially relished roles in such Frederick Ashton classics as Monotones
and The Dream (in which he danced Puck).
But, especially with the references to Ashton's Monotones
made by Kelly's trio of men framing a solo woman, the riches of sure ballet schooling were largely absent.
Her career with the Royal encompassed a wide variety of major works, from Swan Lake and Ashton's Monotones
and Enigma Variations to MacMillan's Romeo and Juliet, where she originated the role of Rosaline; she went on to dance a particularly dramatic Juliet and to create several roles in later MacMillan ballets, including the Empress Elisabeth in Mayerling and the Tsarina in Anastasia.
