Live from The Royal Ballet, Covent Garden

Within the Golden Hour / New Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui / Flight Pattern

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 Bossi and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset.  Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern, revived for the first time, uses Górecki’s familiar music and a large dance ensemble for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration.  And in between, a new work created for The Royal Ballet by the acclaimed choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui has its première to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date.

Within the Golden Hour
