This autumn, NEBT presents a brand new double bill that promises to be a visual and musical spectacle of passion, hope and remembrance
The Four Seasons is a bold, stylish ballet choreographed by Jenna Lee to Max Richter’s dynamic re-composition of Vivaldi’s much-loved violin concerti. Each season is represented in glorious detail through vibrant and varied choreography.
First performed by NEBT in 2017 at Cheltenham Music Festival, The Four Seasons is being restaged with dazzling costumes by performance designer and bespoke milliner April Dalton.
In time to commemorate the centenary of The Armistice of 11 November 1918 comes world-renowned choreographer Wayne Eagling’s first creation for NEBT, Remembrance.
Based on the life of Dame Marie Rambert (a hugely influential figure of British, and international, ballet), Remembrance traces Rambert’s whirlwind romance with the playwright Ashley Dukes. Notably, the ballet explores her anguish at their separation when he is called back to the horrors of the battlefield.
The ballet is set to Handel’s Ode for St Cecilia’s Day, which is being played live at the Peacock Theatre performances by The English Concert baroque orchestra.
On Thursday 27th September, a special gala performance will be held in support of The Royal British Legion and NEBT. Hosted by NEBT patron Dame Darcey Bussell DBE, the evening includes VIP reception, guest artists, live auction and, of course, the performance.
(Note: ticket prices for the gala performance range from £55 to £225)
