Within the Golden Hour – Medusa – Flight Pattern

BUY TICKETS  2pm Sunday 19 May

BALLET TRIPLE BILL broadcast AS LIVE from the Royal Opera House (recorded live on Thursday 16 May)

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 Bosso and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset. Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern, revived for the first time, uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s familiar music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration. Between them, Medusa by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, created on The Royal Ballet, has its premiere to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date.
