English National Ballet dress rehearsal

3 Mar

It was wonderful watching about 30 mins of the dress rehearsal of the English National Ballet on Friday 2 March. Thought I’d share a few minutes of their rehearsal of the world premiere piece The Death of Carlos and Ramon by Stina Quagebeur. Danced by Nathan Young, Max Westwell and Tamarin Stott. Set to Stravinsky’s Psalm 39. It was performed for the first time on Friday evening as part of the ENB’s residency at Tate Britain. All three newly commissioned works (inspired by Picasso’s paintings) will be also performed at their upcoming Beyond Ballet Russes season at the London Coliseum.

PS If you buy a top price ticket (£67) for any of the shows, use the code Picasso to get a second ticket free of charge.

    Love the solo bit for Tamarin Stott towards the end that looks like she’s marking. (I’m assuming she *isn’t* marking, right? Hah!)

      I think she was, as they did another run after that segment. They were getting used to the much smaller stage is my guess. Will be seeing their second programme with Apollo. They danced a pas de deux from it last night and it was breath-taking…without any cast listings though, no idea who will be dancing on our night. Crossing fingers for Klimentová like last night.
