Following the Company’s celebrated return to their home stage in The Royal Ballet: Back on Stage, The Royal Ballet presents its first public performances with The Royal Ballet: Live – two special 75-minute programmes that will run without an interval, celebrating cherished works and modern classics from the repertory, each one concluding with a one-act ballet.

The Royal Ballet: Live – Elite Syncopations begins with a varied selection of excerpts and set pieces and concludes with Kenneth MacMillan's showstopping Ragtime ensemble-piece, Elite Syncopations.
