LIVE CINEMA SEASON
THE ROYAL BALLET
NEW WAYNE MCGREGOR
THE AGE OF ANXIETY
NEW CHRISTOPHER WHEELDON
Three Royal Ballet choreographers honour the creative genius of Leonard Bernstein as part of special worldwide centennial celebration of works created in response to Bernstein's music.
Leonard Bernstein was one of the first classical composers in America to achieve both popular and critical acclaim. He was eclectic in his sources – drawing on jazz and modernism, the traditions of Jewish music and the Broadway musical – and many of Bernstein’s scores are remarkably well suited to dance.
This all-Bernstein programme includes two world premieres by Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor and Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon, and the first revival of Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett’s 'The Age of Anxiety' set to Bernstein’s soul-searching Symphony No 2.
