CONCERTO/ENIGMA VARIATIONS/RAYMONDA ACT III
19:15 TUES 05 NOV
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 summarised in one act, full of sparkle and precise technique. 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. Concerto, MacMillan’s fusion of classical technique with a contemporary mind, completes a programme that shows the breadth of The Royal Ballet’s heritage.
