The contemporary face of The Royal Ballet is shown in works from three of today’s leading choreographers.
Christopher Wheeldon’s Within the Golden Hour is based around seven couples separating and intermingling, to music by Vivaldi and Bosso and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset. Performed by Beatriz Stix-Brunell, Lauren Cuthbertson, Sarah Lamb, Vadim Muntagirov, Ryoichi Hirano and Steven McRae.
Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern, revived for the first time, uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s familiar music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration. Principal dancers for this production are Kristen McNally and Marcelino Sambé.
Between them, a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui – Medusa, (danced by Natalia Osipova) created on The Royal Ballet has its premiere to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date.
