The Royal Ballet brings its celebrations of 70 years at the Royal Opera House to a close with a gorgeous mixed programme of works by its Founder Choreographer Frederick Ashton.

The Dream is Ashton's adaptation of Shakespeare's riotous comedy in which a forest sprite plays havoc, armed with a love potion. Set to brooding music by Franck, Symphonic Variations was Ashton's first work after WWII, a seminal masterpiece celebrating the pure beauty of movement. Ashton created the passionate ballet Marguerite and Armand for the celebrated partnership of Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev in 1963, to Lizst’s tempestuous Piano Sonata.
