New ENB works for Palace

David Upton

Two works new to English National Ballet’s repertoire, Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s masterwork Song of the Earth and August Bournonville’s La Sylphide recreated by Frank Andersen and Eva Kloborg, will be performed at Manchester Palace Theatre from October 11 to 14.

MacMillan’s Song of the Earth is an exploration of life, death, and renewal set to Mahler’s song cycle Das Lied von der Erde, performed live by the English National Ballet Philharmonic.
