English National Ballet's next instalments of its Wednesday Watch Party series will be Stina Quagebeur’s Nora on 20 May and Derek Deane’s Swan Lake on 27 May.
Nora, inspired by the lead character in Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, is ENB Associate Choreographer and First Artist of the Company Stina Quagebeur’s first work for the main stage. With a cast of eight dancers, including Crystal Costa as Nora and Lead Principal Jeffrey Cirio as Nora’s husband, and music by Philip Glass, the piece premièred as part of the ‘She Persisted’ triple bill of female works in April 2019.
Derek Deane's version of Swan Lake, seen worldwide for over two decades, features Lead Principals Isaac Hernández as Prince Siegfried and Jurgita Dronina as Odette / Odile and was recorded at the Liverpool Empire in 2018.
Recordings are available for 48 hours.
