Taliesin Broadcast - ROH: Mixed Triple Bill (Ballet) (As Live 12A)


Royal Opera House

 Mixed Triple Bill (Ballet)

Wheeldon Within the Golden Hour / Cherkaoui Medusa / Pite Flight Pattern

Three ballets  - one world premiere

Choreography: Christopher Wheeldon,
 Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Crystal Pite

Music: Ezio Bosso, tbc, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki

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 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 reserection on migration. Between them, a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, created on The Royal Ballet has its premiere to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date.
