About

The Royal Ballet celebrates the centenary of Leonard Bernstein’s birth with this all-Bernstein collection. The Company’s three associate choreographers respond to the varied styles of Bernstein’s music in ballets that are lyrical, beautiful, exuberant and moving. Wayne McGregor’s ‘Yugen’ is set to Chichester Psalms. In ‘The Age of Anxiety’ Liam Scarlett responds to Bernstein’s eclectic Second Symphony, itself a response to W.H. Auden's poem. ‘Corybantic Games’ by Christopher Wheeldon responds to the Serenade after Plato’s ‘Symposium’. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true Surround Sound.

‘…one of the most beautifully achieved dances of his career.’
 – The Guardian (Yugen)

‘…a cascade of showstopping, kaleidoscopic configuration.’ – The Guardian (Corybantic Games)

‘…moments that catch at the heart.’ – The Arts Desk (The Age of Anxiety)
