A visual and musical feast of passion, hope and remembrance.
In commemoration of the armistice, Wayne Eagling’s latest ballet (set to Handel’s masterpiece) is based on the life of Dame Marie Rambert during the Great War. A hugely influential figure on the British and international ballet scene, we follow her whirlwind romance with Ashley Dukes and her anguish at their separation as he is called back to the horrors of the battlefield.
