Livestream: Reimagining Classics Panel Discussion
Featuring a distinguished panel that includes our own Artistic Director, Tamara Rojo and Music Director Gavin Sutherland, alongside Almeida Theatre’s Associate Director Robert Icke (Oresteia, 1984) and the V&A’s Senior Curator Mark Evans (Botticelli Reimagined), and hosted by journalist Sarah Crompton, Reimagining Classics will discuss the importance of revisiting classic works in order to keep them alive and relevant for new generations.
Reimagining Classics comes ahead of our sold out London performances of Akram Khan’s reinterpretation of the iconic ballet Giselle.
Artistic Director Tamara Rojo said; “Ballet, and art, has the potential of interpretation and reinterpretation, and this is vital to drive our art form forward. My vision for English National Ballet has been to introduce new works that push the boundaries of ballet, for both the Company and audiences, while at the same time honouring and reinvigorating traditional works that have become so loved over the years.”
