Royal Opera House Ballet: Bernstein Centenary

Tuesday March 27th, 2018 - 7pm
Duration: 3 hours including 2 intervals

Leonard Bernstein was one of the first classical composers in America to achieve both popular and critical acclaim.
To celebrate the centenary year of the composer’s birth, The Royal Ballet has united all three of its associate choreographers to celebrate the dynamic range and danceability of Bernstein’s music.
At the heart of the programme is the first revival of Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett’s The Age of Anxiety, created in 2014 to Bernstein’s soul-searching Second Symphony. Both symphony and ballet are inspired by W.H. Auden’s masterful modernist poem, itself written in response to the atmosphere of disillusionment and uncertainty that followed the end of World War II.
