News - Details of The Royal Ballet’s 2013/14 Season have been announced…

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

The Season features several productions using Music Sales copyrights. Joby Talbot is writing music for a brand new full length narrative ballet of A Winter’s Tale, from Christopher Wheeldon, to be premiered next Spring. Wayne McGregor’s 2006 production, Chroma, also using music by Talbot, returns for another run as part of a triple bill in November this year. Danse à Grande Vitesse by Michael Nyman forms part of a mixed programme of exhilarating contrasts, from a dark Victorian melodrama to a celebration of hi-tech modernity in May 2014.

Igor Stravinsky’s Les Noces features when The National Dance Company of Wales makes its first visit to the Linbury Studio Theatre with a mixed programme celebrating its 30th anniversary.

Of the Season’s programming, Director of The Royal Ballet Kevin O’Hare says:

‘New work is really the life-blood of the Company. It’s very important to be doing classics; it’s important to remember our heritage. But new works will keep the Company going from strength to strength.’
