Notes: Owing to industrial action within the Royal Opera House, the order of the programme was changed and the entire evening performed with the set and lights of 'La Fin du jour'. This meant that the band for 'Elite Syncopations' were in the pit.
Durations: Entire work: 9.15-9.51pm
Event: Number 3 in The Royal Ballet mixed programme 15 March 1979
