S255E01 P.A.R.A.D.E 05/11/2017 The radical ballet Parade was created in 1917 by the combined genius of Erik Satie, Jean Cocteau and Pablo Picasso. It broke new ground, bringing performers onto the street and imprisoning dancers in huge cardboard costumes. The score included the sound of a mop, a typewriter and a gun. Now, National Dance Company Wales and the artist Marc Rees reimagine the piece on an epic scale for our own times. The immersive performance, staged both inside and out, includes political unrest, fake news and a renegade robot. The rarely seen Parade is choreographed by NDCWales's artistic director Caroline Finn, and Satie's score is performed by BBC National Orchestra of Wales, conducted by Martin Yates. P.A.R.A.D.E is part of the Russia '17 season that marks the centenary of the Russian Revolution with a range of events which capture the social and cultural explosion of the era and Wales's historic connections with the Russia of the time.
S255E02 The Winter's Tale from the Royal Ballet 25/12/2014 Shakespeare's late, great romance The Winter's Tale is brought to exuberant and colourful life by The Royal Ballet in choreographer Christopher Wheeldon's full-length production, which had its world premiere at the Royal Opera House in 2014. This classic story follows the destruction of a marriage through all-consuming jealousy, the abandonment of a child and a seemingly hopeless love. Yet, through remorse and regret - and after a statue comes miraculously to life - the ending is one of forgiveness and reconciliation. Wheeldon continues his highly successful collaboration with designer Bob Crowley and composer Joby Talbot to bring this striking and poignant production to the stage, with a cast of world-class dancers interpreting one of Shakespeare's most moving plays.
