Paramount Presents: The Royal Ballet in HD – Concerto / Enigma Variations / Raymonda Act III

Live Broadcasts | 12/12/2019 | 7:00PM

Please join us for a complimentary pre-ballet lecture in The Paramount Theater Auditorium at 12:00PM. The lecture for Concerto / Enigma Variations / Raymonda Act III will be conducted by Katie Schetlick. Katie Baer Schetlick is a dance artist, researcher, and current Lecturer in Dance at the University of Virginia. She holds an MFA in Dance from Hollins University and a Masters in Performance Studies from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.

From The Royal Ballet’s classical origins in the works of Marius Petipa, to the home-grown choreographers who put British ballet on the world stage, this mixed program highlights the versatility of the Company. Petipa’s Raymonda Act III is Russian classical ballet summarized in one act, full of sparkle and precise technique, while Ashton’s Enigma Variations is quintessentially British in every way – from its score by Elgar and period designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman, to Ashton’s signature style, the essence of British ballet. Concerto, MacMillan’s fusion of classical technique with a contemporary mind, completes a program that shows the breadth of The Royal Ballet’s heritage.
