The Dream / Connectome / The Concert at the Royal Opera House

Last Friday, after a hard day's (and week's if  I may add) work, I wanted to unwind watching ballet at the Royal Opera House. The Dream / Connectome / The Concert was almost sold out for the rest of the days and I had been so lucky a few days ago while booking a ticket for Friday's performance.

Frederick Ashton's The Dream is based on William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. In a magical world, Oberon and Titania play games with unwitting mortals, while the mischievous Puck intensifies love's comic confusions. 

The second programme by Alastair Marriott  is an exciting collaboration with acclaimed designer Es Devlin and lighting designer Bruno Poet

 The programme ends in superb style with The Concert. This humorous ballet by Jerome Robbins is a witty spoof of a classical music concert. As a pianist performs Chopin, the audience allow their minds to wander and their resulting fantasies take flight.
