Concerto / Enigma Variations / Raymonda Act III (The Royal Ballet)

Anna Rose O'Sullivan (Concerto); James Hay (Concerto); Yasmine Naghdi (Concerto); Ryoichi Hirano (Concerto); Mayara Magri (Concerto); Laura Morera (The Lady Elgar (Enigma)); Christopher Saunders (Edward Elgar (Enigma)); Francesca Hayward (Dorabella (Enigma)); Matthew Ball (Troyte (Enigma)); Natalia Osipova (Raymonda (Raymonda)); Vadim Muntagirov (Jean de Brienne (Raymonda));

From The Royal Ballet’s classical origins in the works of Petipa, to the home-grown choreographers who put British ballet on the world stage, this mixed programme highlights the versatility of the Company. Petipa’s Raymonda Act III is Russian classical ballet summarized in one act, full of sparkle and precise technique, while Ashton’s Enigma Variations is quintessentially British in every way – from its score by Elgar and period designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman, to Ashton’s signature style, the essence of British ballet. Concerto, MacMillan’s fusion of classical technique with a contemporary mind, completes a programme that shows the breadth of the Company’s heritage.


"A sunlit and sparkling triple bill with a touch of autumnal warmth" (The Independent ★★★★)

"The Royal Ballet honours its heritage with a varied triple bill that illustrates the range of its repertoire and gives both corps and soloists ample opportunities to shine" (Culture Whisper ★★★★)

"The Royal Ballet is at the top of its game in a new triple bill of MacMillan, Ashton and a pinch of Petipa..." (The Guardian ★★★★)

"O’Sullivan dances with a sunbeam brightness and zest to match her tangerine-coloured costume… The ‘Nimrod’ variation is a memorable evocation of mature friendship; catching at the shifting currents of conversation and companionship with a finespun physicality… Princely Vadim Muntagirov follows suit with pantherine leaps and there’s strong support from the soloists and fluffy-hatted corps." (The Stage ★★★★)
