Royal Opera House: Ballet Encore: Concerto/enigma Variations/raymonda Act Iii
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
From The Royal Ballets 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. Petipas Raymonda Act III is Russian classical ballet summarized in one act, full of sparkle and precise technique, while Ashtons Enigma Variations is quintessentially British in every way from its score by Elgar and period designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman, to Ashtons signature style, the essence of British ballet. Concerto, MacMillans fusion of classical technique with a contemporary mind, completes a programme that shows the breadth of The Royal Ballets heritage.Approximate running time: about 3 hoursCONCERTOChoreography Kenneth MacMillanMusic Dmitry ShostakovichDesigner Jurgen RoseLighting designer John B.
