Recorded live at the Royal Opera House, October 2015.
Carlos Acosta focuses on the dramatic essentials of love, jealousy and revenge in his new production of Carmen. As well as
choreographing the production, Acosta dances a lead role.
Liam Scarlett has used Lowell Liebermann's thrilling Piano Concerto No.1 as the inspiration for his similarly audacious choreography in Viscera.
Debussy's evocative score is the inspiration for Jerome Robbins's Afternoon of a Faun, which depicts two ballet dancers as absorbed by their own reflections as they are attracted to each other.
George Balanchine's Tchaikovsky pas de deux uses a fragment of music composed for the 1877 production of Swan Lake for an eight minute display of ballet bravura and technique.
