Season

This event is part of the Winter 2014/15 season.

Background

Anthony Dowell's glorious interpretation uses classical choreography created by Lev Ivanov and Marius Petipa for the ballet's revised 1895 version. Dramatic costumes emphasize the contrast between human and spirit worlds, while glowing lanterns, shimmering fabrics and designs inspired by the work of Peter Carl Fabergé create a magical setting.

These talks will be led by Pauline Green, associate lecturer at Birkbeck (University of London). Her research focus is on hearing and listening, and composition.
