Description

The diversity of Wayne McGregor's astonishing talent is demonstrated through Chroma, Infra and Limen, each created for The Royal Ballet, for whom he is Resident Choreographer. In ballets that are intimate yet universal, light yet dark, frenetic yet lyrical, McGregor pursues his passion for exploring the inner workings of the human body and mind. His many-layered and beautiful dances provide visual, sensual and kinaesthetic stimulus for the viewer.

I have several in the ROH Opus Arte series, all of which are wonderful to watch, professionally recorded and highly recommended, but for me this one is extra special because it has INFRA - one of the most beautiful, elegant and modern pieces of any type of art I have ever seen (to me it transcends all other pieces of art)!! These series are quite expensive but they really are worth it - I am so glad I am able to have them to watch whenever I like :) The service from the ROH shop is fantastic and quick too.
