Raymonda,from romanticism to abstraction
Petipa’s last major ballet, Raymonda was little performed outside Russia until some fifty years ago, but it is recognised today as a masterpiece with great choreographic and musical value. Continually performed in St Petersburg and Moscow, it has now entered the repertoires of companies around the world, from the Paris Opéra Ballet to La Scala, Milan, and, several months ago, of English National Ballet in a new version created by Tamara Rojo.
