Performed by the Royal Ballet at the Royal Opera House in London
Choreography by Wayne McGregor, Liam Scarlett & Christopher Wheeldon – Music by Leonard Bernstein – 3 hr
General Public: $20, BMFI Members: $18, Students with ID: $10
The Royal Ballet celebrates the centenary of Leonard Bernstein's birth with a program from choreographers Wayne McGregor, Liam Scarlett and Christopher Wheeldon, showcasing the dynamic range and danceability of the composer's work. The program includes two world premieres by McGregor and Wheeldon, marking each artist's first foray into Bernstein. At the heart of the program is the first revival of 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.
