Three works – six choreographers. To open, music of Tchaikovsky partners George Balanchine’s choreography in Serenade, one of Balanchine’s most popular works – he described it as ‘dancers in motion to a beautiful piece of music’. Next, acclaimed choreographer Kim Brandstrup creates his first new work specially made on The Royal Ballet’s dancers for the main stage. Finally, Homage to The Queen mixes original Frederick Ashton choreography with new sections by Christopher Wheeldon, Michael Corder and David Bintley. Originally devised by Ashton in celebration of the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen in 1953, this reworking from 2006 becomes a delightful compendium of Royal Ballet history and creativity in a single work.
