Synopsis: Enchanting, breathtaking and tragic – three great works by Royal Ballet Founder Choreographer Frederick Ashton danced by The Royal Ballet.
Never been to or seen a ballet before? Then this is your chance to watch a world-class ballet, performed live from the Royal Opera House in London for free!
What’s it about? The Royal Ballet celebrates its heritage through a mixed programme of three of Ashton’s most loved – and most characteristic – works. The Dream (1964) is an enchanting adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ to music by Mendelssohn. Symphonic Variations (1946) is Ashton’s first masterpiece, and a breathtaking, abstract work on the beauty of pure movement. Marguerite and Armand (1963), inspired by the celebrated dance partnership between Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev, is a tragic love story of great lyric beauty.
