The Royal Ballet celebrates the work of acclaimed choreographer Christopher Wheeldon with this mixed programme of three one-act ballets, including one world premiere.

Within the Golden Hour is Christopher Wheeldon’s one-act ballet to music by Ezio Bosso , it is a complex work that features seven couples dance in shifting groups. They separate for three central pas de deux, before all the dancers come together for an ending of great intensity.
