Royal Ballet: Within the Golden Hour, New Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui & Flight Pattern

TWO RECENT WORKS AND ONE WORLD PREMIERE SHOWCASE THE CONTEMPORARY FACE OF THE ROYAL BALLET.

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, set to music by Vivaldi and Bosso, is lit with rich colours suggestive of sunset. Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration. Between them, a premiere by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, created for The Royal Ballet, brings the contemporary truly up-to-date.
