A once-in-a-lifetime event celebrating the English National Ballet's history, their countless dancers, choreographers, artists, musicians, artisans and technicians.

Friday 17 and Saturday 18 January 2020, 19:30. Saturday matinee, 14:00.

In the first half, the English National Ballet present a non-stop programme of some of the most important, enjoyable and iconic works that make up their history and ground-breaking repertoire.

Classics of the Ballets Russes (that inspired their original vision) melt into modern productions; archive footage of the Company dissolves into live action on stage; and extracts from great masters – Balanchine, Petit, MacMillan and many more – follow one another to create an astonishing, dream-like look back at their history, and that of modern ballet.

The evening concludes with a stunning showcase of the great talent across all the ranks of English National Ballet, with Harald Lander’s Etudes. This favourite of their repertory, which we first performed in 1955, begins with traditional ballet exercises and steps and ramps up to a show-stopping display of dancing.
