This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of legendary composer Leonard Bernstein, and to celebrate The Royal Ballet are staging a mixed programme of three pieces inspired by the composer's works.
The mixed programme will see Resident Choreographer of The Royal Ballet Wayne McGregor and Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon present new works entitled Yugen and Corybantic Games, respectively. These world premieres were the focus of a recent ROH Insights session. The event – featuring both rehearsals and interviews – is now available to watch in-full on-demand on this page, and via the ROH YouTube channel:
Bernstein Centenary runs 15 March-9 April 2018. Tickets are sold out, although returns may become available, and a limited number will be released each week via Friday Rush.
The Mixed programme will be relayed live to cinemas around the world on 27 March 2018. Find your nearest cinema and sign up to our mailing list.
