Remembrance | The Four Seasons 2018

A visual and musical feast of passion, hope and remembrance in a brand new ballet double bill.

Toured in Sept-Oct 2018.  View full programme here.


In commemoration of the Armistice comes Wayne Eagling’s new ballet Remembrance set to Handel’s masterpiece Ode to St Cecilia’s Day, based on the life of Dame Marie Rambert during the Great War. A hugely influential figure on the British and international ballet scene, we follow her whirlwind romance with Ashley Dukes and her anguish at their separation as he is called back to the battlefield.
