IT’S NOT JUST TCHAIKOVSKY! Nigel Bates Tuesday 17 November 2020

POSTPONED FROM MARCH

Nigel is the Administrator of Music for the Royal Ballet. He has also produced classical music programs for BBC TV and  is a notable professional musician who has worked with many of the leading figures in the classical music field.

We will move from the grandness of Imperial Russia, with Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty, to the current modern repertoire of the Royal Ballet. The first two parts of the lecture will also include audio and video clips from ballets old and new, and look at how music is chosen or created. In the last part of the talk Nigel takes a close look at the Nutcracker and how the music of Tchaikovsky along with storytelling, design and dance come together to make the most magical of events.
