New English Ballet Theatre is an ambitious venture inspired by impresario Sergei Diaghilev's cross-discipline approach to bringing new works to the stage. Patrons include Darcey Bussell, Carlos Acosta and Mara Galeazzi, along with guest choreographers Wayne Eagling and Samantha Raine - who will all join this endeavour to nurture the talents of a new generation of dancers, choreographers, musicians, artists and designers.
A company dedicated to nurturing emerging talent, New English Ballet Theatre returns with two contrasting works. Former English National Ballet soloist and choreographer Jenna Lee takes Max Richter's vibrant recomposition of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons as the foundation of her neoclassical ballet. In Remembrance, world-renowned choreographer Wayne Eagling is inspired by Marie Rambert's life during the Great War, set to Handel's Ode for St Cecilia's Day, played live by The English Concert.
