The Royal Ballet brings its celebrations of 70 years at the Royal Opera House to a close with a gorgeous mixed programme demonstrating the great creative vision of its founder Choreographer Frederick Ashton.
The Dream is Ashton’s adaptation of Shakespeare‘s riotous comedy in which a forest sprite plays havoc, armed with a love potion. Symphonic Variations was Ashton’s first work after World War II, featuring six dancers performing a series of quartets, duets, sextets and solos in a seminal masterpiece celebrating the pure beauty of movement. Marguerite and Armand is Ashton’s beautiful and emotional retelling of a well-known story, familiar to us through Verdi’s opera La Traviata, famously created for Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev in 1963.
