Afternoon of a Faun / In the Night / Song of the Earth
LONDON/GREAT BRITAIN: The Royal Ballet’s mixed programme brings together two of Jerome Robbins’s masterpieces with MacMillan’s powerful depiction of love and loss.
To put Jerome Robbins together with Kenneth MacMillan in a mixed pballet program was a good mix. Two of the worlds leading choreographers at the same time in demanding ballets, performed at the highest possible level at the main stage at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in London is allways a hit.
Jerome Robbins’s poignant setting of Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune is a modern ballet classic.
