(0 votes)

Ten years since The Royal Danish Ballet’s last visit to Sadler’s Wells, principals and soloists from this internationally renowned company perform a program featuring excerpts from works by August Bournonville, the acclaimed 19th century Royal Danish Ballet choreographer and ballet master who created more than fifty works for the company.

The essence of the Bournonville style lies in its joy of life, rhythm, harmony and easy elegance which will be showcased in excerpts from his ballets such as La Sylphide, Napoli, A Folktale, and Conservatory. As a choreographer, Bournonville believed that beauty is forever modern and with ballet companies still performing his ballets today, 136 years after his death, it proves that his sense of beauty is still very much alive.

Experience this rare opportunity to see dancers from one of the world’s leading ballet companies in their unique Danish style.

Date: 9 - 10 January 2015
Tickets: £18 - £48
Venue: Peacock Theatre, Kingsway (entrance on Portugal Street), London WC2A 2HT
