WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Wayne McGregor and Audrey Niffenegger present a unique modern fairytale. Raven Girl is Wayne McGregor's seventh work for the main stage at Covent Garden. The ballet is a collaboration with visual artist and award-winning writer Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveller's Wife. It marks McGregor's sixth year as Royal Ballet Resident Choreographer and promises to showcase the groundbreaking and imaginative choreography for which he has become renowned.
Symphony in C - The four movements of Bizet's Symphony no.1 in C Major are accompanied by choreography that draws on the neoclassical style of Balanchine's early years as a dancer in St Petersburg. As a mixed programme the performance lasts about 2hrs 20mins including two intervals.
