New English Ballet Theatre presents two contrasting works. Former English National Ballet soloist and choreographer Jenna Lee takes Max Richter’s vibrant recomposition of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons as the foundation of her neoclassical ballet. In REMEMBRANCE, world-renowned choreographer Wayne Eagling is inspired by Marie Rambert’s life during the Great War, set to Handel’s Ode for St Cecilia’s Day.
