This dynamic mixed bill by world class choreographers combines everything ballet is today in a single evening with music from Bach to Genesis: grace, poise and beauty mixed with humour, wit, and satirical social commentary. It will take you from the Baroque courts of Europe to the Wild West, with some hippie flair and Stepford Wives thrown in for good measure.

Whether you are a seasoned ballet lover or new to dance, Baroque & Roll will be an evening to remember, with a great variety of music and choreographic styles, danced by an exceptionally talented company.

The evening begins with Baroque Encounters by Daniela Cardim. To the sound of two beautiful harpsichord pieces by Baroque master Johann Sebastian Bach, seven dancers playfully explore the patterns and moods of the music.

The second half of the evening is a firework of short ballets by Royal Ballet Character Artist, Kristen McNally. Known for her witty and quirky choreographic style, McNally has been working with New English Ballet Theatre since 2012.

Her Lonesome Gun is an expression for her love of all things Wild West, while in Mad Women a group of flesh and blood Stepford wives take power for themselves to get what they want.

With Invisible Touch and I Can’t Dance McNally has created unforgettable dance versions of two masterpieces of pop music history by megaband Genesis.

“Across the eight pieces of dance, and their different dance styles, what remains a constant pleasure is the skill and dedication of the New English Ballet Theatre dancers.” – Seen and Heard International
