The Unknown Soldier - Mixed Ballet
at Royal Opera House
The classical and the contemporary meet in this programme of three complementary works. Alastair Marriott's new ballet to a commissioned score from Dario Marianelli marks the centenary of the ending of World War I in October 2018. The Unknown Soldier imagines the story of individuals caught up in the turmoil of war. Both McGregor's Infra, created on The Royal Ballet in 2008, and Balanchine's 20th-century classic Symphony in C each provide a technical tour de force in their individual ways for the Company, soloists and corps de ballet alike.
