NEW WAYNE MCGREGOR I THE AGE OF ANXIETY
NEW CHRISTOPHER WHEELDON
Choreography: Wayne McGregor
Music: Leonard Bernstein
Conductor: Koen Kessels
Orchestra: Orchestra of the Royal Opera House
Part of The Royal Opera House live cinema season.
The Royal Ballet celebrates the centenary of Leonard Bernstein’s birth with an all-Bernstein programme from the Company’s three associate 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. He was eclectic in his sources – drawing on jazz and modernism, the traditions of Jewish music and the Broadway musical – and many of Bernstein’s 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 year of the composer’s birth, The Royal Ballet has united all three of its associate choreographers to celebrate the dynamic range and danceability of Bernstein’s music.
The performance lasts about 3 hours, including two intervals
