National Dance Company Wales return to the Royal Opera House performing three dances to amuse and amaze, alongside participatory events.

When to see it

Background

National Dance Company Wales is an award-winning company presenting work by some of the most celebrated international choreographers alongside creations by exciting new Wales-based talent. The company returns to the Royal Opera House with two performances of Awakening and two dates of Discover Dance.

Awakening is a mixed programme of three contrasting dances. Fernando Melo’s Afterimage is a unique theatrical experience, using a mixture of mirrors and creative dance. Caroline Finn’s Revellers’ Mass gathers an unlikely group for a dinner party where etiquette is put to the test, featuring curious choreography inspired by iconic paintings. Tundra, by Marcos Morau, is an ultra-modern retelling of history books.

Discover Dance is a participatory event for families that includes an opportunity to try some dance with the company before a performance of Revellers’ Mass.
