The Royal Ballet’s Woolf Works will be broadcast on BBC Four on 9 July 2017 at 7pm.
Wayne McGregor’s critically acclaimed ballet triptych is set to music by British composer Max Richter and is inspired by the works of Virginia Woolf. The cast includes Edward Watson, Alessandra Ferri, Natalia Osipova and Sarah Lamb.
Each act of the ballet draws on one of Virginia Woolf's novels – Mrs Dalloway, Orlando and The Waves – as well as extracts from her autobiographical writings, to capture her unique way of representing the world.
The performance, which was broadcast to cinemas in February 2017, will be presented by former Principal of The Royal Ballet and 'Strictly Come Dancing' judge Darcey Bussell and BBC broadcaster Clemency Burton-Hill.
The Royal Opera House and the BBC are partners.
