English National Ballet to perform at the Royal Albert Hall

Posted on: 7/11/2019 6:00AM

English National Ballet will return to the Royal Albert Hall in London next summer (17-28 June 2020) with Derek Deane’s critically acclaimed production of Swan Lake in-the-round. 

 

This epic in-the-round staging of the much-loved ballet features over 120 performers including 60 swans gliding across the stage in unison. Tchaikovsky’s memorable score is played live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.

 

English National Ballet has a long and distinguished history. Founded in 1950 as London Festival Ballet by the great English Dancers Alicia Markova and Anton Dolin, it has played a major role in the growth and history of ballet in the UK.

 

The Royal Albert Hall is the world’s most famous stage. Over the past 148 years, it has hosted everyone from Albert Einstein to Arctic Monkeys, The Beatles to Beyoncé, Churchill to Chvrches (we could go on). Last year, its breathtaking auditorium presented 401 events by the world’s greatest performers – taking in rock, pop and classical music, theatre, dance, films, Cirque du Soleil and even tennis – with the magical setting and inspired artists creating amazing memories for audiences.

 

Opened in 1871 to fulfil Prince Albert’s vision of a central hall to promote the arts and sciences, the Hall is a registered charity that remains true to his founding ambitions while looking to the future.
