Great 20th century choreographers draw on diverse musical sources in this collection: Sir Frederick Ashton appropriates Mendelssohn's exquisite incidental music for A Midsummer Night's Dream and Satie's haunting Gymnopédies; John Cranko, ably abetted by Sir Charles Mackerras, cherry-picks from the early operas of Verdi, while Bellini's operas inspire George Balanchine; Jerome Robbins dreams on Chopin's Nocturnes, and Michel Fokine, accepting Weber's Invitation to the Dance, also finds pathos in Saint-Saën's Carnival of the Animals.
