CONCERTO/ ENIGMA VARIATIONS/ RAYMONDA ACT III
LIVE IN CINEMAS SUNDAY 10 NOVEMBER 2019
FROM THE ROYAL BALLET'S CLASSICAL ORIGINS TO THE HOME-GROWN CHOREOGRAPHERS WHO PUT BRITISH BALLET ON THE WORLD STAGE, THIS PROGRAMME HIGHLIGHTS THE VERSITILITY OF THE COMPANY.
From The Royal Ballet’s classical origins in the works of Marius Petipa, to the home-grown choreographers who put British ballet on the world stage, this mixed programme highlights the versatility of the Company. Petipa’s Raymonda Act III is Russian classical ballet summarized in one act, full of sparkle and precise technique, while Ashton’s Enigma Variations is quintessentially British in every way – from its score by Elgar and period designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman, to Ashton’s signature style, the essence of British
ballet. Concerto, MacMillan’s fusion of classical technique with a contemporary mind, completes a programme that shows the breadth of The Royal Ballet’s heritage.
