Justin Peck's "Rotunda" sees Britten Sinfonia and New York City Ballet join forces at Sadler's Wells.
Britten Sinfonia joins New York City Ballet to perform Justin Peck’s Rotunda (2020), featuring a commissioned score from acclaimed American composer Nico Muhly. Peck evokes the daily world of dancing through use of mirrored and ensemble groupings, bursts of spontaneous energy, and loose, imperfect movements to inspire reflection, delight and intrigue.
Founded in 1948, New York City Ballet (NYCB) is one of the foremost ballet companies in the world. Created by legendary choreographer George Balanchine and arts patron Lincoln Kirstein, NYCB is known for its cutting-edge neoclassical style and athletic poise.
This is a rare opportunity to see the world-renowned NYCB perform with a live ensemble in the UK.
