Re: “Carolina Ballet opens season with Balanchine program

"What Balanchine needs is someone to do for him what he did for his great forebear Petipa: clear out the dross and polish up the jewels. But the Balanchine Trust, which licenses his choreography, likely would not allow that, and at any rate, Weiss does not seem inclined to take the job."

Why should works of dance art be subject to change over time rather than being preserved as they were created by the artist? Would you suggest it's also time for musical compositions, paintings or novels of his contemporaries or earlier artists to be "polished?" When I listen to an orchestra play Beethoven's 7th Symphony, I don't want to hear their cool updated take on Beethoven, I want to hear Beethoven. And I would have been very upset if when I read The Great Gatsby for the 3rd time I found that someone had decided to "update" it. I like to know that the Balanchine Trust is there to lift ballet to a level of artistic respect and integrity that other art forms have always had.
