Royal Opera House Live: Macmillan Celebrated

There are no scheduled instances of Royal Opera House Live: Macmillan Celebrated. You can view similar events below.

Running time 195 minutes (including two intervals)

The Royal Ballet celebrates the breadth of Principal Choreographer Kenneth MacMillan’s one-act ballets, Danses Concertantes, Different Drummer and Requiem.

Danses Concertantes, commissioned by Ninette de Valois in 1955, was MacMillan’s first major work. An early sign of the incredible artistic output that would follow, the work’s critical success spurred MacMillan to abandon performing in favour of choreography. It is followed byDifferent Drummer, MacMillan’s complex and haunting balletic interpretation ofWoyzeck, Georg Büchner's play about a soldier’s descent into madness. The mixed programme concludes withRequiem, his 1976 work for Stuttgart Ballet, created in memory of its late artistic director, MacMillan’s friend and former Royal Ballet dancer and choreographer John Cranko.
