Under the artistic direction of Christopher Marney, BALLET CENTRAL returns with a new programme showcasing the best in dance theatre. These young dancers on the cusp of their professional careers will perform a mixed bill, featuring works by world-renowned choreographers.
Matthew Bourne of New Adventures honours us with the Fairies Prologue from his gothic-reworking of Sleeping Beauty and for the first time, BALLET CENTRAL will present an excerpt from FAR by multi award-winning choreographer and director Wayne McGregor. Choreographer Jenna Lee returns with her brand new creation Black Swan, a dark twist on the iconic classic. The life and work of Kenneth MacMillan is celebrated with an excerpt from his rarely-seen 1983 ballet Valley of Shadows inspired by Georgio Bassani's haunting novel The Garden of the Finzi-Continis.
To close this year's performance Christopher Marney revives scenes from Christopher Gable’s Cinderella on the 25th anniversary of its creation. Set to an acclaimed score by Ballet Central's resident composer Philip Feeney, this is a timeless version of a much-loved fairy tale.
