The Royal Opera House present the first revival of Wayne McGregor’s critically acclaimed ballet triptych to music by Max Richter, inspired by the works of Virginia Woolf and starring Alessandra Ferri and Mara Galeazzi

Three movements are each inspired by one of Woolf’s novels – ‘I now, I then’ from Mrs Dalloway, ‘Becomings’ from Orlando and ‘Tuesday’ from The Waves – mingled with influences from her life and work.

Wayne McGregor’s ballet, met with outstanding critical acclaim on its premiere in 2015, and went on to win McGregor the Critics’ Circle Award for Best Classical Choreography and the Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production.

Woolf Works was McGregor’s first full-length work for The Royal Ballet, and saw him reunited with regular collaborator Max Richter, who provides a commissioned score incorporating electronic and orchestral music.

Running time

The performance lasts about 2 hours 35 minutes, including two intervals.
