Different Drummer

 

Jann Parry discusses how the great British choreographer Kenneth Macmillan never saw ballet as simple fairy tales for an easy evening out.

With the blessing of his widow, she was given full access to diaries, letters and notes taken while creating some of his most famous ballets. Ten years in the writing Jann recently published Different Drummer to excellent reviews.
