Royal Opera House Live: Macmillan Triple (cert TBC)

The Royal Ballet celebrates the breadth of Principal Choreographer Kenneth MacMillan’s one-act ballets. 

Danses Concertantes, commissioned by Ninette de Valois in 1955, was MacMillan’s first major work. It is followed by Different Drummer, MacMillan’s complex and haunting balletic interpretation of Woyzeck, Georg Büchner’s play about a soldier’s descent into madness. The mixed programme concludes with Requiem, his 1976 work for Stuttgart Ballet, created in memory of its late artistic director and MacMillan’s friend John Cranko.
