THE ROYAL BALLET (LIVE) presents
Woolf Works Ballet Triptych
The pioneering literary work of Virginia Woolf is the inspiration for multi-award-winning choreographer Wayne McGregor’s brilliant triptych for The Royal Ballet.
McGregor, who has long been at the cutting edge of ballet, combines themes from three of Woolf’s landmark novels – Mrs Dalloway, Orlando and The Waves – with elements of her letters, essays and diaries. Acclaimed British composer Max Richter creates a specially commissioned score incorporating electronic and live music.
The dancers are: Alessandra Ferri, Sarah Lamb, Natalia Osipova, Akane Takada, Beatriz Stix-Brunell, Francesca Hayward, Federico Bonelli, Steve McRae, Edward Watson, Gary Avis, Tristan Dyer, Paul Kay, Eric Underwood and Matthew Ball.
