Royal Ballet LIVE: Contemporary Triple Bill
Contemporary triple bill: Within The Golden Hour, Medusa, and Flight Pattern.
The contemporary face of The Royal Ballet performs three works from three of today’s leading choreographers. Revivals of works by Wheeldon and Pite and a world premiere by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
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 for The Royal Ballet has its premiere to bring the contemporary arm of The Royal Ballet truly up-to-date.
