Dance; EVENT OF THE WEEK
Saturday 29 August 1998
The Peacock Theatre, London
Harold King, sustained his gallant little City Ballet to entertain countrywide audiences for years without a subsidy (Arts Council eat your hearts out). Now he returns with the reminiscently named City Ballet of London and their new programme is boldly enterprising. Mark Baldwin premiers The Man With a Moustache, a surrealist treatment of a score by the gifted and famously eccentric English composer Lord Berners. We are told to expect apples and bowler hats as well as moustaches. Sinfonietta Giocosa by a Hungarian choreography, Istvan Herczog is set to Martinu's music and has its first British showing. The bill also includes a revival of Donizetti Variations, Balanchine's classical showpiece.
The Peacock Theatre London WC2 (0171-863 8222), 2 - 5 September at 7.30pm and Saturday 5 September at 3pm. Then touring to Buxton, Crawley, Southsea and Basingstoke.
