- Monotones [ballet]
- Classical/ Dance Performance
Ballet choreographed by Frederick Ashton and scored by Erik Satie.
"Frederick Ashton distilled the exquisite tranquility of Erik Satie's pieces in Monotones I and II, which display some of his most modernist choreography. Monotones II was created first and given its premiere at the Royal Opera House in 1965, accompanied by Satie's Trois Gymnopédies. Ashton created a second piece to Satie's Trois Gnossiennes (Monotones I), and the two were presented together the following year. Satie's Préludes d'Eginhard was played as an overture."
