Obsidian Tear / The Invitation / Within the Golden Hour at the Royal Opera House – 28th May to 11th June 2016


mixed bill 2016

The Royal Ballet offer three ballets from three very different choreographers, there is a world premiere from McGregor, a dark drama from MacMillan and one Wheeldon’s finest works.

This mixed programme begins with Wayne McGregor’s new work, Obsidian Tear which is inspired by Esa-Pekka Salonen’s orchestral work Nyx, itself inspired by the Ancient Greek goddess of night.

Kenneth MacMillan was inspired by the new ‘realism’ in the creation of his 1960 work The Invitation. The work plunges into considerable psychological depths, set to an original score by Hungarian-British composer Mátyás Seiber.

Christopher Wheeldon, Artistic Associate of The Royal Ballet, created Within the Golden Hour for San Francisco Ballet in 2008. This intricate ballet for seven couples includes three strongly characterized pas de deux and displays Wheeldon’s beautifully complex handling of ensembles.
