Two recent works and one world premiere showcase the contemporary face of The Royal Ballet.

Choreography: Christopher Wheeldon, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Crystal Pite Music: Ezio Bosso, Henryk Mikolaj Gorecki (and tbc)

The contemporary face of the Royal Ballet is shown in works from three of today's leading choreographers. Christopher Wheeldon's 'Within the Golden Hoour' is based around seven couples separating and intermingling, to music by Vivaldi and Bosso, and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset. Crystal Pite's 'Flight Pattern', revived for the first time, uses a large dance ensemble and Gorecki's familiar music from his 'Symphony of Sorrowful Songs' for a poignant and passionate reflection migration. Between them, a new work by Sidi Larbi Chekaoui, created on the Royal Ballet, has its premiere to bring the contemporary truly up to date.

Approximate running time: 3 hours 15 minutes, including two intervals
