Comment:        RE: SHK 15.0299 Banned Shakespeare

I hope this isn't too far off the Subject of this list, but I find
myself puzzled as to what the term "excessively heterosexual" means

(Philip Eagle:  "the headteacher (principal for US readers) of a single
school rejected an offer of free or cheap tickets to a production of the
Prokofiev R&J ballet on the grounds that it would not be of interest to
her working class pupils and was excessively heterosexual.")

Did she mean that the play was such, and that therefore the ballet must
likewise be such? Or that this particular choreography was such?

And how could it be so? My already over-active imagination begins to
visualize tutus, tights, shoes and leotards flying in all directions,
and simulated procreative acts performed by principals and corps alike.

Ballet, moreover, seems to be an unlikely art form to generate that
particular charge.

Baffled,
don

Thanks to Martin and Philip for correcting my defective memory of the
Islington business.
