Atonal and dissonant[edit]

There's a peculiar claim in the second paragraph that this score is "atonal and dissonant". Listening to it right now, it's quite the contrary. I can hear standard harmonic progressions here, as well as clear tonal centres - very little of this is dissonant at all, let alone a-tonal. In fact, the source that's quoted says the exact opposite of what it says in the article - "An almost atonal style is attained at times, but the music still generally retains a sense of direction". That's not what's currently said in the article. "Almost atonal at times" is not the same as "atonal and dissonant". I'm going to remove that part of the article.

Wrong slant[edit]

The title would suggest this article is about the entire ballet, not just its musical score. Yet it is clearly just about the music. Either the focus of the article needs to become more inclusive, or the title needs to change. -- Jack of Oz [your turn] 18:38, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
