La Bayadère (Makarova)

Tuesday 13 November7.15pm

The Royal Ballet

La Bayadère

Choreography Natialia Makarova after Marius Petipa

Composer Ludvig Minkus

In Makarova's beautiful re-working of this 19th Century classical ballet we are drawn into the exotic world of Indian legend.

The tale tells the story of a beautiful temple dancer and a prince who loves her but marries another.

The famous, 'white act'', The Kingdom of the Shades, is brought to life in shimmering moonlight. A corps de ballet highlight, as multiple images of the prince's lost love haunt his mind.  With this ethereal act alongside a world of temple dancers and noble warriors, expect to be transported to another world.

The melody and moods of Minkus' music perfectly matches the precision of the choreography and of the storytelling.

This broadcast from the Royal Opera House is classified (12A)

The Nutcracker

Choreographer Peter Wright after Lev Ivanov

Composer Tchaikovsky

The Nutcracker has long been one of the most delightful ways to discover the enchantment of ballet – and makes for a delicious seasonal treat for all the family. Tchaikovsky’s much-loved music is matched to a magical adventure on Christmas Eve for Clara and her Nutcracker doll. Their journey to the Land of Sweets brings with it some of the most familiar of all ballet moments, such as the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Waltz of the Flowers.

 

Peter Wright’s production for The Royal Ballet keeps true to the spirit of this Russian ballet classic, with period details and dancing snowflakes. The many solo roles and ensembles put the world-class skills of the Company to the fore in this Christmas classic.

Don Quixote

Choreographer Carlos Acosta after Petipa

Composer Ludwig Minkus

Cervantes’s story of the bumbling knight Don Quixote has inspired countless artistic interpretations. Marius Petipa choreographed this sparkling ballet about the encounters of the man from La Mancha and his faithful squire Sancho Panza. At its heart are virtuoso roles for the lovers Basilio and Kitri.

Carlos Acosta chose this joyful classic for his first production for The Royal Ballet. His vibrant staging brings together the whole Company in such roles as exuberant villagers, passionate gypsies and even fantasy flowers. The story follows Don Quixote’s picaresque journey to do deeds in honour of his imaginary noble lady, Dulcinea. Sunny, charming, funny and touching – Don Quixote is a ballet as full of uplifting emotion as it is of astonishing ballet technique.

Within the Golden Hour

A New Work from Choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui

Flight Pattern

The contemporary face of The Royal Ballet is shown in works from three of today’s leading choreographers.

Christopher Wheeldon’s Within the Golden Hour is based around seven couples separating and intermingling, to music by Vivaldi and Bosso and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset.

Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern, revived for the first time, uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s familiar music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration.

Between them, a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, created on The Royal Ballet has its premiere to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date.

The Royal Ballet

Romeo and Juliet

Composer Sergei Prokofiev

Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end.
Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.
