A triple bill displaying the contemporary face of the Royal Ballet.
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.
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.
Between them, a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui created for The Royal Ballet, has its premiere to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date. Choreography: Christopher Wheeldon, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Crystal Pite. Music: Ezio Bosso, TBC, Henryk Górecki.
195m including 2 intervals.
