Rambert, Britain’s national dance company brings dances about love, art and rock ’n’ roll to Sadler’s Wells.

In Transfigured Night two lovers meet by moonlight, and a dark secret threatens to tear them apart. Created by two-time Olivier Award-winning choreographer Kim Brandstrup, it is a dramatic love story, with intimate duets and spectacular ensemble dancing amplifying the beauty and romance of its Schoenberg score.

The 3 Dancers is based on one of Picasso’s greatest paintings, and the tragic love triangle that inspired it. Choreographer Didy Veldman and composer Elena Kats-Chernin bring to life Picasso’s vivid Cubist imagery and the themes of love, desire and betrayal which fill his work.

 

Topping the bill is a final chance to see Rooster, Christopher Bruce’s funny, thrilling smash hit celebrating the swinging sixties. Sharp-dressed, snake-hipped men dance to impress strong, sassy women, to the pulsating rock ’n’ roll of the Rolling Stones’ most famous tunes, including Not Fade Away, Paint It Black, Sympathy for the Devil and Little Red Rooster.
