This very special programme features new works inspired by Britten from choreographers Kim Brandstrup (music: Britten Variations on a theme of Frank Bridge), who creates a new work for The Royal Ballet, and Ashley Page (music: Britten Young Apollo & Purcell arr. Britten Chacony) and Cameron McMillan (music: Larry Goves new work after Britten’s Nocturnal), who create works for Royal Ballet Flanders.
