As one of the only ballet companies to have direct lineage from the Ballets Russes, English National Ballet celebrates the centenary with two programmes including some of the troupe’s great works, Ballets Russes productions were collaborations with major choreographers, composers, artists and dancers of the time including Pavlova, Picasso, Debussy, Chanel, Matisse and Nijinsky.

Ballets Russes – Sadler’s Wells, London.

The Australian Ballet also has direct heritage from the original Ballets Russes and for this season English National Ballet will be joined by guest artists from The Australian Ballet for performances of Le Spectre de la Rose

Highlights of Ballets Russes includes Les Sylphides, Le Spectre de la Rose, Schéhérazade and The Dying Swan. The performances also showcase Kenneth MacMillan’s reworking of the visceral The Rite of Spring, which provoked riots at its first performances by the Ballets Russes; and the World Premiere of Faune, a re-imagining of Nijinsky's L'après-midi d'un Faune by internationally acclaimed choreographer David Dawson.

As part of Ballets Russes English National Ballet offers Exploring Ballets Russes, a unique chance to see what goes into creating a programme of work. The Company will present a special performance looking into the rehearsal process. The first act will explore the methods the dancers and their tutors use to restage and rehearse these ballets, and in act II the Company presents a fully staged performance of The Dying Swan, and Schéhérazade.
