Synopsis :

BERNSTEIN CENTENARY 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 APPROXIMATE RUNNING TIME: 3 HOURS, INCLUDING TWO INTERVALS CHOREOGRAPHY WAYNE MCGREGOR, LIAM SCARLETT, CHRISTOPHER WHEELDON MUSIC LEONARD BERNSTEIN 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 programme includes two 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 W.H. Auden’s masterful modernist poem, itself written in response to the atmosphere of disillusionment and uncertainty that followed the end of World War II.
