A mixed bill of ballet featuring the work of Wayne McGregor and Kenneth MacMillan.

McGregor’s Chroma, which won the 2006 Laurence Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance, is set against a minimalist set to a Jody Talbot score.

MacMillan’s Different Drummer sets Buchner’s Wozzeck to the music of Schoenberg and Webern, while Royal Ballet favourite The Rite Of Spring is a powerful interpretation of Stravinsky’s orchestral masterpiece.
