Symphonic Variations

"Symphonic Variations" was one of Frederick Ashton's finest works for the Royal Opera House, and became a cornerstone of The Royal Ballet's repertory.

It was written for just six dancers, who never leave the stage, and uses Cesar Franck's brooding 'Variations' for piano and orchestra. The dancers perform a series of quartets, duets, sextets and solos, but always retaining a sense of serenity and spaciousness throughout.
