DEVIL'S HOLIDAYphoto of original cast/trio
Posted 15 November 2004 - 03:22 PM
Following Cincinnati Ballet's restaging of DEVIL'S HOLIDAY last year and the current restaging of the same fragments by the Royal Ballet this month, the attached photo might be of some interest. It shows, left to right, F. Franklin, A.Danilova and G. Zorich as "The Young Lover," "The [Old Lord's] Daughter," and "the Fiance," respectively.
When I recently showed it to David Vaughan, he said he'd not seen it before and that the trio's pose was "so Fred."

"Alexxandra Danilova gave a delightful account of the Daughter. Alicia Markova occasionally performed this role. Perfect technically, her interpretation lacked the exquisite emotion of Danilova's. Frederic Franklin had in the Beggar a role that for suitability and charm were not equalled in his repertoire until the advent of 'Rodeo'"

in the old days there were choreographers esp. known for the beauty of their 'groupings' - perrot was one often praised for this talent. i am a sucker for artful groupings myself and wish i saw more of them on stages today.
