Most recent performance
There are currently no scheduled performances of Awakening. It was last on stage 8–9 March 2019 as part of the Winter 2018/19 season.
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.
