English National Ballet: Modern Masters at The Sadler’s Wells
Modern Masters principal casting

Modern Masters honours the work of three of the most influential and creative choreographers of the 20th Century, and brings two new works to English National Ballet’s repertoire.

Created in 1991, Ji?í Kylián’s poetic piece, features six men, six women, and six fencing foils, symbolising energy, silence and sexuality. Performed to the slow movements of two Mozart Piano Concerti, the foils slowly become dancing partners, as the brutality of everyday life is revealed. Petite Mort is a quintessential Kylián masterwork, loved by our audience and our dancers when we performed it last year.

In the same year that Petite Mort was premiered, Hamburg Ballet’s John Neumeier, a new master of narrative and dramatic ballet, created Spring and Fall. Set to the Dvo?ák’s Serenade for Strings in E Major, it is a work for two couples and corps de ballet and takes its narrative from the tension in the music. Spring and Fall is not in the repertoire of any other UK company.

With In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated, William Forsythe started a completely new school of choreography, deconstructing classical ballet and liberating a new generation of classical dancers to show off their abilities. Set against a bare stage it is danced by nine individuals culminating in a fierce display of technical and physical wizardry.

English National Ballet’s five-star critically acclaimed production of Lest We Forget got rave reviews.

Lest We Forget rave reviews

Award-winning British choreographers Akram Khan (Dust), Russell Maliphant (Second Breath) and Liam Scarlett (No Man’s Land) have each created new work to reflect the moving and powerful impact of the First World War on those setting off to fight and those left behind. Khan’s work explores the empowerment of women in the war whilst Maliphant’s conveys the sacrifice of the men. Scarlett’s work explores the relationship between men and the women they leave behind – the loss and longing. The programme is completed by George Williamson ’s re-worked Firebird set to the commanding Stravinsky score performed by our live orchestra.

Amazing” Jeffery Taylor, Sunday Express.
“A brave and brilliant move from director Tamara RojoLyndsey Winship” Evening Standard.
“Make this absolutely an evening to catch if you can Hanna Weibye, The Arts Desk.
Lest We Forget is both moving and ambitious Zoë Anderson, The Independent.
“A turning point in ENB’s history” Judith Mackrel, The Guardian.
“Melancholic but thrillingly uplifting” Sarah Crompton, Telegraph.
