Created in 1966 for Berlin’s Deutsche Opera Ballet and set to Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto no.2 in F, this stunning ballet includes energetic corps de ballet sections as well as lyrical pas de deux that perfectly reflect the contrasting mood of the music. Bright, vivid designs by Jürgen Rose encapsulate the work’s warmth and energy and Concerto remains one of MacMillan’s most celebrated creations. This recording from 2019 features Royal Ballet First Soloists Anna Rose O’Sullivan, James Hay and Mayara Magri with Principals Yasmine Naghdi and Ryoichi Hirano.
Live performance is a shared experience, and our audiences are at the heart of what we do on our stages, backstage, online, in cinemas and in our communities. This year’s global pandemic has affected all arts organisations across the world. We have lost £3 in every £5 of our income, and any Government loan will take us only part of the way. We need your help to bring artists back to our stages. Please consider making a donation to the Royal Opera House Recovery Campaign.
