A triple bill of contemporary ballet

Wayne McGregor’s Yugen (‘profound beauty’ in Japanese), a co-production with the English National Ballet, premiered in 2018 to an enthusiastic reception. It’s inspired by Leonard Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, alternating lyrical dance scenes with dynamic group parts. Yugen is a Dutch premiere, and so is David Dawson’s The Four Seasons, a co-production with the Semperoper Ballett, which uses Max Richter’s ethereal adaptation of Vivaldi’s famous composition. The triple bill is concluded by the world premiere of a work by the Spanish choreographer Juanjo Arqués, Manoeuvre, which is set to John Adams’ Shaker Loops.
