Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House / John Carewe

A double bill which contrasts the vibrant colours of Stravinsky’s best-loved ballet, The Firebird, with the stark ritual of Les Noces, choreographed by the legendary Nijinska. With Leanne Benjamin as the Firebird in the modern Royal Ballet production. Extra features include rehearsal footage of Nijinska and her world from dancer David Drew.

Extra features include
• David Drew on Nijinska’s world
• Behind-the-scenes rehearsal of The Firebird and Les Noces
