Acclaimed as one of Ashton’s very finest works, this stream celebrates the 75th anniversary of the ballet’s premiere at the Royal Opera House.
The ballet was created for just six dancers, who never leave the stage. The dancers combine in a series of quartets, duets, sextets and solos, perfectly reflecting César Franck’s brooding Variations symphoniques for piano and orchestra. The flow of dancing quickens and slows but retains a sense of serenity and spaciousness – a hint at the mysticism and spirituality Frederick Ashton had studied during World War II, and which had a clear impact on his choreography.
