Bernstein Celebration Blu-ray (The Royal Ballet)

Notify me when this product is available:

Bernstein Celebration Blu-ray (The Royal Ballet) celebrates the centenary of Leonard Bernstein’s birth with this all-Bernstein collection. The Company’s three associate choreographers respond to the varied styles of Bernstein’s music in ballets that are lyrical, beautiful, exuberant and moving. Wayne McGregor's Yugen is set to Chichester Psalms. In The Age of Anxiety Liam Scarlett responds to Bernstein’s eclectic second symphony, itself a response to W.H. Auden's poem. Corybantic Games by Christopher Wheeldon responds to the Serenade (after Plato’s ‘Symposium’).
