CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.

Rhapsody/Sensorium/Still Life at the Penguin Cafe

The variety in this mixed programme makes it enticing as much for anyone just discovering the thrill of worldclass dance as for Royal Ballet regulars. It is a great combination of virtuosity, contrasting moods and beautiful images, with music to match. Rhapsody was created by Frederick Ashton for Mikhail Baryshnikov and Lesley Collier, with choreography to suit their star reputations. It is a fabulous work for today’s Royal Ballet virtuoso dancers, contrasting lyrical pas de deux with astounding solos. Alastair Marriott’s Sensorium - in its first revival - is a response to the evolving atmospheres of Debussy Préludes, within warm and spacious designs and with undercurrents of intimacy. David Bintley’s ‘Still Life’ at the Penguin Café is a famously popular ballet, not seen in full at the Royal Opera House since 1993. With a timely theme of protection and preservation of the natural world, it is joyful, amusing, exuberant and provocative as endangered species take to the stage in dancing styles from ballroom to morris, introduced by penguin waiters. A riot of dance and colour, it brings the whole programme to a poignant and perfect end.
