Price £12

A programme of works packed with the audacious attitude of American-style neo-classical ballet from three generations of choreographers in New York.

Running from: Thu 12 - Sat 21 Apr.

Voices of America features two works by one of dance’s leading figures, William Forsythe: the world premiere of A New Creation, created for English National Ballet and Approximate Sonata 2016, a series of pas de deux deconstructing the vocabulary of classical ballet, to a score by Thom Willems.

The bill also includes Jerome Robbins’ arresting tale of unstoppable predatory instincts The Cage, set to Stravinsky’s Concerto in D, and a reworked version of Aszure Barton’s Fantastic Beings, accompanied by Mason Bates’ dynamic score performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.
