Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 284 - Balletomane - Nominate!!!!

Two immediately come to mind but both are probably sure-fire losers so I'll have to give a bit more thought.

I was so expecting a figure skating theme as well, but this will do. I have a perfect choice in mind, will check later if it hasn't been sent already. Am sure I'll make it to the top this time :grin2:

well I have ideas, problem is that they've probably never been used in a ballet setting which sucks, because they would work perfectly.
I don't want to have to send a Tchaikovsky piece because that is a little too familiar.

Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 284 - Balletomane - Nominate!!!!

Helpful hint....

For those having trouble with this, as the son of a very successful (and respected) ballet critic who consequently went to the ballet a lot when I was growing up, based on my experience one name does stand out. Twyla Tharp. She is easily my favourite choreographer and one reason is that she specialised in modern ballet and frequently used 20th century music. The other is that she has a great imagination and even has the ability to throw in a bit of humour in her work. There is a playful unpretentious intelligence that oozes from her work. Additionally the music she uses is wide ranging, original and often quite surprising. She made a ballet working with David Byrne for example. She has also used the music of George Gershwin, Jelly Roll Morton, Nancy Sinatra, Nancy's dad Frank, Bob Dylan, Philip Glass in her ballets for example among many others.

In all honesty, growing up in that background did not leave me being much of a ballet fan. Generally I find ballet pretty boring if I am honest. But I will always make an exception for Twyla and I would always happily take the offer of going to performance of a Twyla Tharp produced ballet if someone offers me a ticket. If you guys explore her work I'm sure you can find some nice music to use for this game.....
