Winter Dreams

G. Meyerbeer, B. Herrmann, P. I. Tchaikovsky


One-act ballet to music composed by Giacomo Meyerbeer from Le Prophète and L'Étoile du Nord operas and arranged by Constant Lambert

Choreography by Sir Frederick Ashton. Costumes designed by William Chappell. Staged by Julie Lincoln

It was first presented in London in 1937. The Russian premiere was taken place in Perm in 2014. Running time: 25 minutes

The performance of Sir Frederick Ashton’s Les Patineurs (The Skaters) (1937) to music composed by Meyerbeer is a charming winter sketch – it is as though one is peeping through a Victorian window. To this day it remains a repertoire favourite of The Royal Ballet.

The ballet is staged in collaboration with the Frederick Ashton Foundation in accordance with Ashton’s style and technique
