UK Rating:
 

Leonard Bernstein was one of the first classical composers in America to achieve both popular and critical acclaim. He was eclectic in his sources Ė drawing on jazz and modernism, the traditions of Jewish music and the Broadway musical Ė and many of Bernsteinís scores are remarkably well suited to dance. He was particularly associated with Jerome Robbins, their credits together including Fancy Free andWest Side Story. To celebrate the centenary year of the composerís birth, The Royal Ballet has united all three of its associate choreographers to celebrate the dynamic range and danceability of Bernsteinís music.The programme includes two world premieres by Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor and Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon, marking each artistís first foray into Bernstein. At the heart of the programme is the first revival of Artist in Residence Liam Scarlettís The Age of Anxiety, created in 2014 to Bernsteinís soul-searching Second Symphony. Both symphony and ballet are inspired by W.H. Audenís masterful modernist poem, itself written in response to the atmosphere of disillusionment and uncertainty that followed the end of World War II.
