Sadler’s Wells Associate Company English National Ballet is back with another triple bill of masterpieces from the 20th century.

Not seen in the UK since 2008, English National Ballet is the first UK company to be allowed to perform Pina Bausch’s iconic Le Sacre du printemps (The Rite of Spring). Stravinsky’s riotous score is performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.

William Forsythe famously changed ballet forever with In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated, allowing the dancers to show off their technical expertise and physical prowess.

Hans van Manen’s austere and lyrical Adagio Hammerklavier is set to Beethoven’s pensive piano Sonata No 29, Op 106, performed by three couples.
