BP Big Screens 2017
The Dream/Symphonic variations/Marguerite and Armand
Wednesday 7 June, 7.30pm, with pre- performance screening from 7.00pm

The Royal Ballet brings its celebrations of 70 years at the Royal Opera House to a close with a mixed programme of three of the greatest works by its Founder Choreographer Frederick Ashton. The Dream is an enchanting dance adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the breathtaking abstract work on the beauty of pure movement Symphonic Variations is Ashton’s first masterpiece, and Marguerite and Armand, inspired by the celebrated dance partnership of Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev, is a tragic love story of great lyrical beauty.

As a guidance all BP big screens are rated 12A due to being live relays.
