A Gala Night Celebrating Ballet’s Greatest Pioneers
Ivan Putrov, former principal with The Royal Ballet and an internationally acclaimed producer and dancer, returns to the London Coliseum with an outstanding cast of leading dancers from some of the world’s great ballet companies. His new production, Against the Stream, celebrates the hugely influential work of the great choreographers who broke with tradition and changed the face of dance – from Robbins and Balanchine in New York, Lifar and Nureyev in Paris, Vaganova and Vainonen in St Petersburg and Ashton and MacMillan in London.

Dancers including Matthew Ball / The Royal Ballet, Mathieu Ganio & Eleonora Abbagnato /  Paris Opera Ballet, Dmitry Zagrebin / Royal Swedish Ballet, Katja Khaniukova / English National Ballet, Marcelo Gomes / former American Ballet Theatre and Maria Kowroski / New York City Ballet performing works by those giants whose belief, vision and persistence created the rich and varied world of dance we have today.

The show will be accompanied by a live orchestra
