Royal Ballet: Rhapsody/Two Pigeons ENCORE

This delightful Frederick Ashton double bill opens with his setting of Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, using the music's dark turbulence and brilliance to inspire some of his most thrilling choreography. Witty, impassioned and sublime this ballet was the pinnacle of Ashton's romantic style. The second half of the programme features Ashton's delicate, deceptively comic The Two Pigeons - a work rarely performed and a real treat for ballet fans everywhere.
