Summary
A gorgeous mixed programme from the Royal Ballet with contrasting works by two of the world's greatest choreographers. Jerome Robbins and George Balachine, and two Royal Ballet home-grown talents: Artist in residence Liam Scarlett and principal guest artist Carlos Acosta. Scarlett's sensual and energising Viscera begins the programme. Afternoon of a Faun is Robbin's exquisite response to Debussy's langorous Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faude; Tchaikovsky pas de deux is a bravura showpiece illustrating in miniature Balanchine's neo-classical style; and Acosta's Carmen, in which he also dances Done José in his farewell performance with the Royal Ballet, is a searingly dramatic reinterpretation of a timeless favorite --Container
