New Wayne Mcgregor, The Age Of Anxiety, New Christopher Wheeldon
Three Ballets - two new productions
The royal ballet celebrates the centenary of leonard bernstein’s birth with an all-bernstein programme from choreographers wayne mcgregor, liam scarlett and christopher wheeldon.
Leonard Bernstein was one of the first classical composers in America to achieve both popular and critical acclaim and many of his scores are remarkably well suited to dance. He was particularly associated with Jerome Robbins, their credits together including Fancy Free and West Side Story. To celebrate the centenary of the composer’s birth, The Royal Ballet has united all three of its associate choreographers to celebrate Bernstein’s music.
The programme includes world premieres by resident choreographer Wayne McGregor and artistic associate Christopher Wheeldon, marking each artist’s first foray into Bernstein. At the heart of the programme is the first revival of artist in residence Liam Scarlett’s The Age of Anxiety, created in 2014 to Bernstein’s soul-searching Second Symphony. Both symphony and ballet are inspired by WH Auden’s masterful modernist poem, written in response to the atmosphere of disillusionment and uncertainty that followed the end of World War II.
