Kenneth MacMillan's Gloria is a haunting lament for the generation lost in World War I. It was inspired by Vera Brittain's autobiography Testament of Youth, which recounts the author's wartime experiences and grief at the loss of her fiance and brother. The book resonated strongly with MacMillan, whose own father was gassed at the Battle of the Somme. Gloria was created for The Royal Ballet in 1980 and is a major work of the repertory; its depiction of the futility of war is as relevant and painful today as at the time of its creation.
