A fundraising Gala Performance in aid of The Royal Ballet and The Joyce Theater opens the week of performances on Tuesday 23 June and will feature Frederick Ashton’s classic ballet The Dream which was created in 1964 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth. The tour coincides with the 50th anniversary of the first performance of The Dream in the USA.

The New York residency also includes two programmes celebrating the work of British choreographers closely associated with The Royal Ballet. Programme One features Kenneth MacMillan’s powerful Song of the Earth which was created in 1965. Set to Gustav Mahler’s great song cycle, MacMillan explores the fragility of human life and features six episodes which are atmospheric rather than literal interpretations of the text. Song of the Earth will be performed with Frederick Ashton’s The Dream from 24–26 June.

Programme Two is a mixed bill comprising Infra by Royal Ballet Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor, The Age of Anxiety by Royal Ballet Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett, and highlights from The Royal Ballet’s repertory including the central pas de deux from Royal Ballet Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon’s award-winning Aeturnum.
