Virginia Woolf Ballet at the Royal Opera House

A radical ballet based on the life and works of Virginia Woolf that aims to evoke her “elegiac” writing style is to be the centrepiece of a new season at the Royal Opera House (ROH).

Woolf Works, which is inspired by the novels Mrs Dalloway, Orlando and The Waves, will adopt a “non-linear narrative” familiar to readers of the English modernist.

Wayne McGregor, resident choreographer of the Royal Ballet, who is behind the new production, said: “At the end of the day it’s about the language. It is so evocative and elegiac. That sensorial feel lends itself so well to the body.”
