Even on a laptop, the Royal Ballet’s latest mixed bill is a joy to behold
When our everyday lives are so confined, there are few more exhilarating pleasures than watching a top-class dancer move through space. The Royal Ballet’s mixed bill Within the Golden Hour is like a tonic for the soul.
Even if you don’t like ballet, I defy you not to utter a little “oomph” of happiness when you see Vadim Muntagirov fly through the air, or Marianela Nuñez smile and spin for ever, in their dazzling Le Corsaire pas de deux. My husband, no dance lover, arrived, stayed and marvelled, watching with me on the laptop.
