The Dream / Symphonic Variations / Marguerite and Armand

Production Company: Royal Opera House
Venue: Corn Hall

The Royal Ballet brings its celebrations of 70 years at the Royal Opera House to a close with this fabulous mixed programme of three most loved works by its Founder Choreographer, Frederick Ashton.

The Dream (1964) is an enchanting adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream to music by Mendelssohn. Symphonic Variations (1946) is Ashton’s first masterpiece, and a breathtaking, abstract work on the beauty of pure movement. Marguerite and Armand (1963), inspired by the celebrated dance partnership between Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev, is a tragic love story of great lyric beauty.
