English National Ballet: Lest We Forget
The English National Ballet’s new Artistic Director, Tamara Rojo, has commissioned three of Britain’s top choreographers – Akram Khan, Russell Maliphant and Liam Scarlett – to create bold new pieces inspired by the First World War. Classical ballet and contemporary dance come together in an exciting fusion of techniques that promises to be as moving as it is inspiring. The programme, commemorating the centenary of the start of the Great War, will also include a performance of George Williamson’s Firebird, which the ENB premiered in 2012.
