DVD Release: Frederick Ashton Triple Bill; The Royal Ballet

This one goes out to all the Ashtonites

Tamara Rojo's obviously been eating the crusts on her bread. The Frederick Ashton Triple Bill is out soon on DVD.

A long overdue parade of three of Frederick Ashton’s shorter works, this DVD-only release features the ever-popular Les Patineurs, the hugely entertaining Divertissements and the relatively modernist showcase that is Scènes de Ballet.

But the icing on the sugary cake for British Ballet purists is the extraordinary cast list. Alongside current day luminaries such as Carlos Acosta, Tamara Rojo, Steven McRae, Sarah Lamb, Laura Morera and Edward Watson (among many others) there’s also a rare DVD sighting of Darcey Bussell and Jonathan Cope performing the Awakening Pas de deux.

With a charmingly be-wigged Tamara Rojo adorning the cover it’s all been put together rather well. It’s due to be released on 1 November 2011 and you can order it here.
