The Royal Ballet: Concerto * Enigma Variations * Raymonda Act III
Classical ballet on the big screen!
From The Royal Ballet’s classical origins in the works of Marius Petipa and Rudolf Nureyev, to the home-grown choreographers Frederick Ashton and Kenneth MacMillan who put British ballet on the world stage, this mixed program highlights the versatility of the Company.
Marius Petipa’s Raymonda Act III is Russian classical ballet summarized in one act, full of sparkle and precise technique.
Frederick 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, Kenneth MacMillan’s fusion of classical technique with a contemporary mind, completes a program that shows the breadth of The Royal Ballet’s heritage.
