WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In honour of the hugely influential Kenneth MacMillan, a choreographer who was way ahead of his time, the legendary ballerina Viviana Durante directs a programme from his enthralling earliest works.
To celebrate his legacy and to mark 25 years since his death, she selects three short ballets - House of Birds, Danses Concertantes and Laiderette, the latter staged in full. Together, they highlight the boldness, complexity, wit and relevance of his choreography. Performed by artists from Ballet Black and The Royal Ballet, including principals Lauren Cuthbertson, Francesca Hayward and Thiago Soares, each contains a passionate pas de deux, another famous MacMillan forte.
