Against the Stream

A Gala Night Celebrating Ballet’s Greatest Pioneers

07 Apr 2019

Ivan Putrov, former principal with The Royal Ballet and an internationally acclaimed producer and dancer, returns to the London Coliseum with a live orchestra and 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 include Matthew Ball from The Royal Ballet, Mathieu Ganio, Paris Opera Ballet, Dmitry Zagrebin, Royal Swedish Ballet, Katja Khaniukova, English National Ballet, Eleonora Abbagnato, Paris Opera Ballet, Maria Kowroski, New York City Ballet and Marcelo Gomes, former American Ballet Theatre, performing works by those giants whose belief, vision and persistence created the rich and varied world of dance we have today.
