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.

The Royal Ballet is a world-renowned ballet company based at the Royal Opera House. With 100 dancers it is the largest of Britain’s four major companies, and is regarded as one of the world’s greatest ballet companies.
