Three Ballets: Within the Golden Hour/New Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui/Flight Pattern
The contemporary face of The Royal Ballet is shown in three ballets 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. Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration. Between them is the premiere of a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
