Performed in Stravinsky's audacious choice for pianos and percussions, the cast includes singers from the Opera Holland Park Chorus, musicians from the Royal Academy of Music and new choreography will be staged by a some of Britain’s best contemporary dancers.

Les Noces is a deeply emotive exploration of what is at the core of human relationships and commitment; New Movement Collective have additionally commissioned three contemporary composers to respond to Stravinsky’s score: the project's music director Yshani Perinpanayagam, emerging RAM composer Andrea Balency-Béarn, and Beatbox Champion MC Zani.

These new compositions will see choreographic explorations on the work’s themes performed by English National Ballet’s ENBYouthCo and Manchester-based Chameleon Youth.
