The Royal Opera House's Ballet troupe thaws the mid-winter freeze with a red-hot sampler of prancing pony treats. Opening earlier tonight at London's Covent Garden, the three works are aimed to raise your temperature.
First up is The Seven Deadly Sins, a revival of Will Tuckett’s interpretation of Kurt Weill’s Seven Deadly Sins. Singing the lead is one of those wacky Canadian Wainwrights, Martha.
Next is Swedish choreographer Mats Ek’s dominatrix Carmen, with Tamara Rojo as the fiery temptress to Don José's p[lastic]leather outfit, wildly disputing the adage that ~a cigar is just a cigar~.
Last is Christopher Wheeldon’s revival of the 2006 Danse à Grande Vitesse, featuring Michael Nyman’s music.
