This July, we return to Sadler’s Wells Peacock Theatre with Tryst: Devotion and Betrayal, an evening of five world premieres from the UK’s most talented emerging choreographers.
Opening proceedings, we present Tangents, choreographed by former Dutch National Ballet dancer Daniela Cardim Fonteyne. This captivating work will be performed to live music with movements from Mussorgsky’s most famous composition, Pictures at an Exhibition. The Royal Ballet’s Erico Montes has created Toca, a short ballet set to music by Brazilian composer Villa-Lobas, while Royal Ballet Soloist Valentino Zucchetti will be premiering Orbital, set to the arresting sounds of Philip Glass. Bringing the first half to a close is the latest highly anticipated new work from Royal Ballet star Kristen McNally.
The evening will conclude with a newly commissioned work by rising star and Andrew McNicol. Based on Tolstoy’s novella The Kreutzer Sonata, this tragic ballet is a tale of passionate love and jealous rage. Against a backdrop of spectacular designs by Linbury Prize winner Emma Bailey, this dramatic performance will also feature the world-class Sacconi string quartet and concert pianist Anne Lovett.
Due to the popularity of this excellent production there will be an additional performance taking place at Rambert this July.
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.
