The new multi-part evening programme at the Wiener Staatsballett is entirely dedicated to "British choreography": Kenneth MacMillan, Wayne McGregor and Frederick Ashton are three choreographers who represent the same dance tradition. "Concerto" – an abstract ballet – opens the evening in the neo-classical style, with each of the three movements offering ample opportunity for demonstrating the dancers’ virtuosity. "EDEN|EDEN" explores the charged relationship between man and technology against the backdrop of current developments such as "cloning" and "cyborgs". The final ballet in the programme, "Marguerite and Armand",was created for Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev and is now a classic example of the English art of dance.
