Ravenna Festival June 7 and 8 2024

Le Ballet de l’Opéra de Lyon

After the end of the Cunningham Company in 2011, the dance was recreated by Robert Swinston for the Bavarian State Ballet, and then for the Compagnie Nationale de Danse Angers (CNDC Angers), where Robert was the artistic director. With the Angers company, we performed regularly in Europe, Abu Dhabi and USA from September 2018 to December 2019. Merce always insisted on live music for his work and we have maintained that principle on every occasion.

The programme always included other works by Merce, here it will be Beach Birds – to music by John Cage

The musicians will be: Morgan Goff, viola; James Woodrow, electric guitar; Audrey Riley, cello; Gavin Bryars, electric keyboard/double bass
