The Dream / Symphonic Variations / Marguerite and Armand

The Royal Ballet brings its celebrations of 70 years at the royal opera house to a close with this gorgeous mixed programme, demonstrating the great creative
 vision of Frederick Ashton, its founding Choreographer.


The Dream is Ashton's adaptation of Shakespeare's riotous comedy in which a forest sprite plays havoc. Felix Mendelssohn.     

Symphonic Variations was Ashton's first work after World War II, and one of the Company's first to be performed on the huge main stage of the Royal Opera House, in 1946. With six dancers performing a series of quartets, duets, sextets and solos to Franck’s brooding Variations symphoniques, this seminal masterpiece celebrates the pure beauty of movement. César Franck.

Marguerite and Armand is Ashton's beautiful and emotional retelling of a well-known story, familiar to us through Verdi's opera La Traviata. Ashton famously created this poignant ballet on Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev in 1963. Franz Liszt. Conductor: Emmanuel Plasson
