STAGE TUBE: Frederick Ashton's A MONTH IN THE COUNTRY, February 12, 1976
by Barnett Serchuk - Feb 10, 2013

A Month in the Country, considered one of Frederick Ashton's most affecting and beautiful ballets, premiered on February 12, 1976. Based on the late 19th-century play by Ivan Turgenev, the ballet tells the story of the hopeless love of Natalia, the bored wife of a wealthy landowner, for her son's tutor, Alexei, in mid 19th century Russia.
