ROH Live Screening: MacMillan Celebrated
The Royal Ballet
Tuesday 9 April 7.15pm
Danses Concertantes, commisioned by Ninette de Valois in 1955 was MacMilian's first major work. An early sign of the incredible artistic output that would follow, the work's critical success spurred MacMilian to abandon performing in favour of choreography.
It is followed by Different Drummer, MacMilian's complex and haunting balletic interpretation of Woyzeck, Georg Buchner's play about a solider's descent into madness.
The mixed programme concludes with Requiem, his 1976 work for Stuttgart Ballet, created in memory of its late artistic director, MacMilian's friend and former Royal Ballet dancer and choreographer John Cranko.
