Tryst: Devotion and Betrayal
Wednesday 2 - Saturday 5 July
Following their highly successful debut season in 2012, New English Ballet Theatre return with a mixed bill programme: Tryst – an exploration of love, devotion, jealousy and betrayal. The programme showcases new works from the UK’s top choreographic talents.
This varied and compelling evening opens with a performance of Orbital Motion, choreographed by the Royal Ballet’s Valentino Zucchetti, set to music by Philip Glass. This programme also includes brand new works from Royal Ballet’s Kristen McNally and the former Dutch National Ballet dancer Daniela Cardim Fonteyne’s Tangents, featuring beautiful live music from movements from Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.
The evening concludes with a newly commissioned work by rising star Andrew McNicol, based on Tolstoy’s novella The Kreutzer Sonata. This moving and tragic ballet features a world-class young string quartet playing the music of Janáček, and an on-stage concert featuring excerpts from Beethoven. With set design from Linbury Prize-winner Emma Bailey, this is a dramatic piece of ballet theatre.
On October 10th 2013, the NEBT Gala took place at the Linbury Theatre, Royal Opera House. It offered an exclusive preview of some of the works which NEBT will premiere at Sadler’s Wells - Peacock Theatre in 2014, including creations by the choreographers Valentino Zucchetti, Erico Montes, Kristen McNally and Andrew McNicol.
On October 8th 2013, NEBT gave a private preview of the Gala Programme at Lanterns Studio Theatre in Canary Wharf. This was a great opportunity to bring classical ballet to a new community.
