is by Gauri Sharma Tripathi, a leading exponent of modern Kathak dance.
Robert Cohan, whose association with Scottish Ballet started in 1993 with A Midsummer Night's Dream, provides the choregraphy
and Carl Davis the music.
Yet the redundant symmetry of the choregraphy
signified a dead end rather than a catalystic meeting of talent.
Billed as a 'sizzler', the show did reach high temperatures in parts, with slick choregraphy
, some strong vocal performances and a booming orchestra.
Much more animated was "L'Espagne," the second entree from Andre Campra's L'Europe Galante, with choregraphy
by Guillaume Louis Pecour as it was published in 1700 and 1704.
