The Royal Ballet’s triple bill of Concerto, Enigma Variations and Raymonda Act III displays the versatility of the Company. MacMillan’s Concerto embraces both the classical and the contemporary, while Ashton’s Enigma Variations, inspired by the life of Edward Elgar, has a quintessentially British charm. Raymonda Act III meanwhile, offers audiences the opportunity to experience the choreographic skills of renowned Russian dancer and choreographer Rudolf Nureyev. 

The evening will see role debuts in Concerto for Anna Rose O’Sullivan, James Hay, Yasmine Naghdi and Mayara Magri. These are followed by role debuts for Laura Morera as Lady Elgar, Francesca Hayward as Dorabella and Matthew Ball as Troyte in Enigma Variations. In Raymonda Act III Russian dancers and Royal Ballet Principals Vadim Muntigirov and Natalia Osipova take on the technical challenges of Nureyev’s choreography, in his re-imagining of the final act of Petipa’s grand classical ballet.
