Christopher Wheeldon’s ballet to a specially written score by Ezio Bosso has been acclaimed as one of his finest works. Seven couples dance in shifting groups. They separate for three central pas de deux each highly characterized: light, sensual, confrontational. All the dancers come together for a thrilling ending. Incorporating music by Vivaldi.
NEW BALLET BY SIDI LARBI CHERKAOUI
Acclaimed contemporary choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui creates his first work for The Royal Ballet.
Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite’s ballet is a moving exploration of the refugee crisis, from the plight of millions of displaced people to individual human relationships. This large-scale ensemble work, which takes a powerful and sombre look at the ongoing refugee crisis, is set to music from Górecki’s ‘Symphony of Sorrowful Songs’.
