This gorgeous mixed programme demonstrates the great creative vision of Frederick Ashton, Founder Choreographer of The Royal Ballet. The Dream is Ashton`s adaptation of Shakespeare`s riotous comedy in which a forest sprite plays havoc, armed with a love potion. Symphonic Variations was Ashton`s first work after World War II, and one of the Company`s first to be performed on the huge main stage of the Royal Opera House, in 1946. With six dancers performing a series of quartets, duets, sextets and solos to Franck`s brooding Variations symphoniques, this seminal masterpiece celebrates the pure beauty of movement. Marguerite and Armand is Ashton`s beautiful and emotional retelling of a well-known story, familiar to us through Verdi`s opera La traviata. Ashton famously created this poignant ballet on Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev in 1963.
