Anna Karenina - T423114815

The Mariinsky Ballet’s acclaimed staging of Tolstoy’s epic novel Anna Karenina receives its British premiere. Choreographed by Alexei Ratmansky to Rodion Shchedrin’s powerful score, the ballet's extraordinary heroine breaks all moral and social conventions with devastating consequences.

Balanchine/Robbins: Scotch Symphony/In the Night/Ballet Imperial - T496284808

Two of ballet’s greatest choreographers, George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins, share a fascinating triple bill. Set to Mendelssohn’s vibrant music and inspired by nineteenth-century romantic ballet, Balanchine’s Scotch Symphony is a poetic vision of the rugged Scottish landscape and its colourful military tattoos. The grandeur of imperial St. Petersburg infuses the Mariinsky’s performances of Ballet Imperial, Balanchine’s great tribute to Petipa and Tchaikovsky. The centrepiece of the programme, In the Night, set to Chopin’s nocturnes, is Jerome Robbins’ mesmerising exploration of the ecstasies and sufferings of three couples, in turn passionate, lyrical, turbulent and sensual.

Homage to Balanchine - Serenade/Rubies/Symphony in C - T431085980

An exhilarating evening pays homage to George Balanchine, one of the greatest choreographers in the history of ballet. Revelatory performances from the dancers of the Mariinsky Ballet display their celebrated elegance and beauty in three of Balanchine’s inspirational, groundbreaking masterpieces of imagination and originality. Serenade is a milestone in the history of dance, a magical fusion of Balanchine’s choreographic genius with Tchaikovsky’s poetry and drama. Rubies, the witty central section of Balanchine’s sparkling three-act ballet Jewels, was inspired by the brilliance of the gemstone and by Stravinsky’s vibrant, jazzy score.
