The Royal Ballet | Metamorphosis: Titian 2012
Currently in rep at the Royal Opera House, Metamorphosis: Titian 2012 is a unique collaboration set up by the Royal Ballet’s out-going Artistic Director Monica Mason as a bold way of looking to the future of dance (though she is not actually ‘leaving’ and will return next season part time as a coach).
The three ballets are inspired by Titian’s paintings : Machina (Kim Brandstrup and Wayne McGregor with Conrad Shawcross’s robot design), Trespass (Alastair Marriott and Christopher Wheeldon with a mirror set design by conceptual artist Mark Wallinger) and Diana and Actaeon (Liam Scarlett, Will Tuckett and Jonathan Watkins with set design by Chris Ofili).
There are two performances left; tonight (where there are a handful of tickets left, priced between £81 and £95) and Friday 20th July (which is currently sold out but check with the box office for returns).
Casting for both performances are : Seligman, Wordsworth, Grier, Benjamin, Rojo, Acosta, Watson, Stix-Brunell, Lamb, Hamilton.
