The recently announced Royal Ballet 2022-2023 season features eight world premieres including Crystal Pite’s artistic response to the refugee crisis.
Other new works by Pam Tanowitz and Wayne McGregor round out a season of fan favorite revivals such as Mayerling, The Nutcracker, The Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella, the latter a celebration of its 75th anniversary since Sir Frederick Ashton’s premiere.
Also returning to the main stage is Wayne McGregor’s Woolf Works, a piece inspired by the author’s personal writings. The themes of and emotions conveyed in the novels Mrs Dalloway, Orlando, and The Waves string together this triptych of dances. Created in 2015 for the company, Woolf Works won the Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production and a Critics’ Circle National Dance Award.
