Asphodel Meadows/The Two Pigeons

Sheer romantic charm sums up Ashton's version of The Two Pigeons (1961). It has Messager's ever-tuneful score alongside a touching love story of a brief flirtation that threatens a young couple's relationship. The imagery of birds is wittily part of the choreography that contrasts bohemian Paris with the darker passions of a gypsy camp. Liam Scarlett's Asphodel Meadows was enthusiastically acclaimed at its premiere in 2010. Set to music by another French composer, Poulenc, it shows how the line and lyricism of Ashton continue into the contemporary Royal Ballet repertory and defining style.
