CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020, work is underway to re-open safely. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.


A celebration of the heritage of the great Diaghilev era, this quadruple bill centres on the staging of two of Vaslav Nijinsky's groundbreaking works - Jeux, his provocative tennis ballet about the games people play, and L'Apres-midi d'un faune, his controversial depiction of the erotic awakening of a young faun when he encounters three nymphs on a summer's afternoon. These are flanked by revivals of Nijinska's Les Biches, an ambivalent portrait of the Riviera smart set in the 1920's, and The Firebird, Mikhail Fokine's great fairy-tale, danced to Stravinsky's epoch-making score. Les Biches (Nijinska, Poulenc), Jeux (Nijinsky- Reconstructed and staged by Millicent Hodson, Debussy), L'Apre-midi d'un faune (Nijinsky- revived from his dance notation score by Ann Hutchinson Guest and Claudia Jeschke, Debussy), The Firebird (Fokine, Stravinsky)
