About this show

A programme of three modern works created for The Royal Ballet begins with Tombeaux, David Bintley's tribute to Frederick Ashton and British ballet tradition. This important work was created as Bintley's last work for the Company before he became Artistic Director of Birmingham Royal Ballet, and The Royal Ballet revives it in appreciation as he steps down from BRB. Alexei Ratmansky's fluid and Romantic-inspired ballet from 2013 is reimagined as Preludes with solo piano music by Chopin. As a contrasting finale, Liam Scarlett's Symphonic Dances to Rachmaninoff's music presents the shifting moods dictated by its central ballerina against a backdrop of dramatic light and colour.
