ROH Ballet – Concerto/Enigma Variations/Raymonda ActIII (12A)
Starring The Roayl Ballet. Music by Dimitry Shostakovich, Edward Elgar, Alexander Glazunov. Choreography by Kenneth MacMillan, Frederick Ashton, Rudolph Nureyev.
Petipa’s Raymonda Act III is Russian classical ballet summarised in one act, full of sparkle and precise technique: adapted by Rudolph Nureyev. 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 Company’s heritage. (3hr.)
