Three Works by the Royal Ballet

Three Works by the Royal Ballet After the Rain is in two parts. The first is choreographed for three couples; the second is a haunting pas de deux. Seven couples dance in shifting groups. They separate for three central pas de deux, each highly characterized: light, sensual, confrontational. All the dancers come together for a thrilling ending of pulsating intensity.

L'Etoile Beneath L’Etoile’s bafflingly ridiculous plot there is music of tremendous craft, imagination and beauty – with an extra serving of extremely dark humour. Lyrical moments, such as ‘O petite étoile’ where Lazuli thanks his lucky star, sit amid a fabulous array of raucously imaginative comedy: highlights include the ‘Trio de chatouillement’ (Tickling Trio); the ‘Duetto de la Chartreuse verte’, as Ouf and Siroco fortify themselves with the green liqueur; and the disconcertingly catchy ‘Couplets de pal’, where Ouf sings of his love of impaling people. Mariame Clément (Don Pasquale at Glyndebourne) makes her Royal Opera debut with this new production, which brings to life Chabrier’s surreal and lovely world.

Orphée et Eurydice

Orphée et Eurydice The Italian Orfeo ed Euridice was the first of Gluck’s great ‘reform’ operas. In it, he and his librettist Ranieri de’ Calzabigi sought to move away from the complicated plots and ornate music of opera seria, in favour of a ‘noble simplicity’, where music always drives the story.

Woolf Works

Woolf Works Royal Ballet resident choreographer Wayne McGregor creates his first full-evening ballet, inspired by the works of Virginia Woolf. Throughout her fiction, Woolf searched for forms that defied the false order of traditional narrative conventions and enabled her to depict reality as she perceived it.: heightened, startling and poignant – the experience of beings at once both physical body and uncontained essence.

Rise And Fall Of The City Of Mahagonny

Rise And Fall Of The City Of Mahagonny Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht's satiric opera was written to throw a salutary chill over the warmth of comfortable art. It was opera as anti opera, and had a stormy reception when first performed in 1930. In this new production for The Royal Opera House, director John Fulljames and designers Es Devlin and Christina Cunningham show that 80 years have sharpended  the opera's observations on the city's corrupting encouragement of greed and excess- whether through money, drink or sex. In the end, even God washes his hands of this dystopia of mankind unchecked.
