Artists of The Royal Ballet in Yugen2018
Royal Opera House, London
15 March – 9 April 2018
Edmund de Waal make his Royal Ballet debut in the 2017/18 Season designing Wayne McGregor’s new ballet, Yugen, at the Royal Opera House. Set to The Chichester Psalms, the production formed part of a programme celebrating the centenary of Leonard Bernstein's birth. For these 'heart-breaking songs of exile', the artist created 'structures for the dancer, places of refuge and pause', and costumes in a spectrum of reds with the fashion designer, Shirin Guild.
Yugen was selected by the Guardian as one of it's top ten dance shows of 2018. Click the link below to read more.
