Program notes

In 2015, the Royal Ballet celebrated its founding choreographer Frederick Ashton, performing two contrasting works he created for the company: Rhapsody, set to Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Op. 43, and The Two Pigeons, set to music by André Messager. The paired choreographies were danced by a stellar cast led by Natalia Osipova, Steven McRae, Lauren Cuthbertson, and Vadim Muntagirov.
