English National Ballet (ENB) has announced its plans for the 2015–16 season, including a triple bill of works by female choreographers and the return of Lest We Forget and Le Corsaire.
She Said, the new triple bill, has its premiere performances at Sadler’s Wells from April 12 to 17, 2016. There will be world premieres from Aszure Barton, Annabelle Lopez Ochoa – choreographer of Scottish Ballet’s production of A Streetcar Named Desire – and Yabin Wang. Tamara Rojo, artistic director of ENB, said: “I have wanted to present an evening dedicated to female choreographers for some time now, and I am thrilled to be working with these incredibly talented women, who are some of the most exciting creative voices working in dance today.”
Lest We Forget, the company’s programme of works inspired by the centenary of World War I, tours to London’s Sadler’s Wells, Milton Keynes Theatre and the Palace Theatre, Manchester in autumn 2015. The season also includes performances of Le Corsaire at the London Coliseum and the Liverpool Empire, a national tour of Rudolf Nureyev’s Romeo and Juliet and the return of Swan Lake in the round at the Royal Albert Hall and The Nutcracker at the London Coliseum for Christmas.
