The Royal Ballet perform Kenneth MacMillan’s controversial masterpiece, which plunges into a world of poverty and heartbreak in pre-Revolutionary France.
The Royal Ballet's big Autumn triple bill shows off three works by choreographers who've defined the company's history. First up, 'Concerto' is an austere piece by contemporary master Kenneth MacMillan. Then, 'Enigma Variations' is a distinctly British work by Frederick Ashton, staged in period costumes. Finally, Russian legend Pepita's 'Raymonda Act III' offers a one act schooling in ballet tradition.
This retro movie-inspired hip hop musical by choreographer Kate Prince is back in the West End after wowing audiences when it premiered in 2011. It's very loosely based on the Billy Wilder film of almost the same name, with a dash of Shakespeare's 'Twelfth Night' thrown in. The show skips from comical slapstick to sentimental drama to soulful musical theatre, via backspins, popping and locking, and despite the slightly convoluted first act plot, by the end you will be completely infected by the cast's upbeat energy. Our advice: just go with it and you'll have a ball. Suitable for ages 7+.
This new production of Christopher Gluck's stately 18th century opera will mix distinguished musical stylings with unbuttoned dance scenes, choreographed by contemporary ballet master Wayne McGregor.
