Sophie | Stateless

11 January at 8pm | 12 January at 4pm

A double bill of brand new dance Choreographed by Cathy Marston, associate artist of the Royal Opera house.

Sophie – A collaboration between choreographer, film-maker, designer, composer and dancers, this newly created work based on William Stryon’s novel Sophie’s Choice coincides with the premiere by The Royal Opera of Nicholas Maw’s Sophie’s Choice. Essentially a portrait of Sophie, the ballet exists in the moment of her final choice – between life and death – and allows fragmented images from her past to swim round her as she makes this last decision. Projections melt in and out of live action, drawing parallels between the characters Sophie encounters, questioning the truth behind the stories she tells.

Stateless – Is a sextet performed to Rakhmaninoff’s Variations on a Theme of Chopin. Working with dancers of The Royal Ballet, Cathy Marston has chosen to choreograph a series of dances triggered by her studies of Sophie’s Choice and inspired by these haunting variations. She collaborates again with designer Jon Bausor, who creates an environment of simple metaphor, framing movement of lingering emotion.

£13.50 | £11 | £9 students | £3 standing

This is opera rather than dance, but it is an initiative from ROH2, headed by Deborah Bull and perhaps indicates similar possibilities for the dance world:

Opera House forges Welsh links
The Royal Opera House has found a Welsh partner. By Jon Gower, BBC online (Wales)

For the first time in its history the Royal Opera House in London has decided to set up a partnership - and it has chosen a small but distinguished Welsh company as its partner.

Music Theatre Wales will gain a London base from the deal and the Royal Opera House will be able to expand its range of 20th and 21st century small scale opera.

There are also plans for the two bodies to jointly commission new works.

Music Theatre Wales' artistic director, Michael McCarthy, is buoyed up by the fact that The Royal Opera House has chosen the Welsh company as its partner.
