The Illustrated 'Farewell' mixed bill Tickets

Royal Opera House, London, WC2E 9DD
  • Twyla Tharp and Arthur Pita create new works for The Royal Ballet, in a mixed programme that includes the first revival of Hofesh Shechter’s 2015 work for The Royal Ballet.

    In this mixed programme, Kevin O’Hare invites two choreographers to create new works for the Company – one making her long-overdue return, the other making his main-stage debut – while reviving one of O’Hare’s earliest Royal Ballet commissions, first performed in 2015.

    Trailblazer Twyla Tharp is one of the most prolific choreographers of our time. In The Illustrated ‘Farewell’, she expands her 1973 classic As Time Goes By into a new work for The Royal Ballet. Arthur Pita is a major force in British dance, best known at the Royal Opera House for his Metamorphosis based on Kafka’s short story. He now presents a new work, The Wind. Hofesh Shechter’s Untouchable showed ballet taking an exciting new direction, pitting classical bodies against Shechter’s signature gravity-bound physicality.

    At the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden from 6 to 17 November 2017, book your tickets for the The Illustrated 'Farewell'/The Wind/Untouchable mixed bill today!
