Richard Alston Dance Company at Snape Maltings

Recommended Posts

A good evening, on Friday, opened a weekend of events under the title 'Britten Dances'. Of the five Alston/Britten works shown, two were new to me - the world premiere of Chacony (a respectful, full-company ensemble piece), and the attractive Rejoice in the Lamb, sounding superb in the wonderful Snape acoustic. My favourite remains Illuminations - beautiful in every way, with fine singing from Mark Padmore, and strongly danced by Liam Riddick and Nicholas Bodych - their partnership in the section starting Gracieux fils de Pan! was very touching. I also liked Bodych a lot in Rejoice in the Lamb - don't think I've seen him before but look forward to the next time. A warmly enthusiastic audience, too.  But I did wish they'd turn the lighting up just a bit...
