Royal Ballet: Concerto/Enigma Variations/Raymonda Act III5th November
A special opportunity to see three works that highlights the skill and beauty of the Royal Ballet Company, screened live from the Royal Opera House.
The mixed programme includes Petipa’s Raymonda Act III, a Russian classical ballet summarized in one act, full of sparkle and precise technique.
Frederick Ashton’s Enigma Variations is quintessentially British in every way – including its score by Elgar and period designs, to the choreographer’s signature style, the essence of British ballet.
Concerto, choreographed by Kenneth MacMillan, is a fusion of classical technique with a contemporary mind, completing a programme that shows the breadth of The Royal Ballet’s heritage.
Approximate running time: 3 hours
