Introducing NEBT’s Ballet Season
After a stunning opening performance at London’s prestigious Roundhouse Theatre, NEBT commences it’s 2017 season with a touring repertoire of modern ballets. Commandeering the unique talents of choreographer Jenna Lee and NEBT’s brand new company of ballet dancers, the season will display the talent and dynamism of direction for which the company is well-recognised.
Kicking off with a performance of ‘Four Seasons, and Other Modern Ballets’ at the Lyric Theatre Hammersmith on Thursday July 6th and Friday July 7th, the tour will next stage the company’s repertoire at the Thameside Theatre in Thurrock on Tuesday July 11th, then the long standing and still eminently popular Cheltenham Music Festival on Sunday July 16th 2017. The tour will run through mid to late July, with some very exciting additions to the schedule along the way…
For 2017, the company is proud to present two of our ballets taken from our critically acclaimed performance at London’s Peacock Theatre in November 2016, ‘Enticement’s Lure’ by Valentino Zuchetti and ‘Vertex’ by Daniela Cardim and a brand-new ballet choreographed by Jenna Lee to Max Richter’s re-composition of Vivaldi’s ‘Four Seasons.’
