May I please, please ask you anyway? You can reject me in stony silence, or with a snarl as you prefer. That almost qualifies as dance of a certain kind by itself.
Below, my honest first response to the question posed by the thread, which I went to a lot of trouble to suppress. Despite which, I love it truly and consider it to be not only a conduit to the sublime, but one of exceptional beauty. It just fukken made me cranky that it was the answer my subconscious immediately supplied when asked to what tune it danced.
So. Just my opinion. But if you ask me, parents might not want to introduce their little girls to the strong magic of such great art imbued with such dark portent when they are really still much too little to draw a hard line between who they are and what they experience. That's all I have to say on the subject and anyway, I now must go hold my breath until my face turns blue.
Meanwhile, YouTube will be offering dance that could not be more beautiful to me than if it it had arrived in my subconscious via a direct link to the dreams of ancient gods:
Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet, Act One, Scene 2, choreographed for the Royal Ballet by the late Sir Kenneth MacMillan.
