Bernstein Centenary (2018): ROH Encore

bernstein roh

I remain bemused as to why the Royal Ballet wanted to participate in the Bernstein celebrations and can only wish the Britten centenary has been acknowledged in a similar way. . Perhaps the designs are a little too soothing on the eye, perhaps the choreography at points verges on sentimental — but I could have watched this ballet again and again. Yugen: Federico Bonelli, Calvin Richardson, Sarah Lamb The Age of Anxiety: Sarah Lamb, Alexander Campbell, Bennet Gartside, Tristan Dyer, Lauren Cuthbertson Corybantic Games : Matthew Ball, Yasmine Naghdi Orchestra of The Royal Opera House Royal Opera Chorus Conductor: Koen Kessels Yugen; Corybantic Games Conductor: Barry Wordsworth The Age of Anxiety Extra: An introduction to each work from the choreographer. As usual with a mixed programme I liked each ballet to a different degree, and delighted in the dancers throughout.

There is fine storytelling and strong musicality, along with beautiful set designs by the old favourite John Macfarlane. It is sheer joy to see these dancers perform through choreography that seems to expand and fill their bodies, exquisitely dovetailed to what is best about this music. I should have remembered that despite being an evening of non-stop Bernstein this was still first and foremost a Royal Ballet show, there to celebrate above all the abilities of the Royal Ballet dancers. No matter, though — it succeeds as a celebration of the cast, with Sarah Lamb, Alexander Campbell, Tristan Dyer and Bennet Gartside all excellent. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true Surround Sound. But otherwise this seemed to me prissy and superficial, packed full of Wheeldonisms that seemed void of all meaning beyond creating passingly pleasing shapes to be photographed and admired statically in a glossy magazine, the effect worsened by the contributions of a big-name designer hung up on marcelled hair and corsets. The main problem is that the story as told by Scarlett and Bernstein is utterly banal, achieving at best a soft nostalgia for my own bouts of drink-induced existentialism.

The salve provided by the ballet for such antagonism was more than ample, McGregor adopting the gentler, more fluid style he developed for part 1 of Woolf Works and, best of all, celebrating young stars risen and rising of the company, chief among them Akane Takada, Calvin Richardson and Joseph Sissens. But in Yugen there is a very attractive new work from the apparently softening McGregor.
