Sarasota Ballet – Digital Program 3: work by Darrell, Wright, Walsh, Wheeldon, Bourne & MacMillan

★★★★✰   Program 3 features all-British choreographers: Peter Wright, Peter Darrell, Christopher Wheeldon, Matthew Bourne and Kenneth MacMillan. The exception is a solo by American Dominic Walsh, created for his own contemporary dance company. ...Some of the selections are probably unfamiliar to American audiences, as well as to British ballet fans of a younger vintage.
