Royal Ballet: Concerto/Enigma Variations/Raymonda Act III

We will be showing a special ballet triple bill live from The Royal Opera Ballet at the Royal Opera House on Tuesday 5th November at 7.15pm

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 summarized in one act, full of sparkle and precise technique, while 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, MacMillan’s fusion of classical technique with a contemporary mind, completes a programme that shows the breadth of The Royal Ballet’s heritage.

Pavel Sorokin conducts the Orchestra of The Royal Ballet and Lighting Design is by John B. Read.
