Igor Stravinsky’s Pulcinella, with Choreography by Richard Alston. Ballet with song in one act. The original version of PULCINELLA was choreographed by Massine with designs by Picasso in 1920. Like the original, Richard Alston's greatly-admired version of the complicated love-story has a Neapolitan setting and is based on traditional Commedia dell'Arte characters. "... costumes are simple and to the point...the set, designed here by Howard Hodgkin, creates a colourful backdrop, which enhances without complicating, and the dancers are suitably lithe and athletic" THE INDEPENDENT.
