Daphnis and Chloe



  • Edward Gardner conductor
  • Circa

Edward Gardner presents a rare full-length performance of Ravel’s ballet Daphnis and Chloé with Circa, Australia’s internationally renowned circus company.

‘I think and feel in sounds’ said Maurice Ravel, and in his ballet Daphnis and Chloé you can almost feel the sun on the back of your neck, hear every flurry of birdsong and see each ray of glistening light. It’s as fantastic as it sounds, and this rare full-length performance under LPO Principal Conductor Edward Gardner is just the centrepiece of a whole evening of orchestral wonder. In La valse, memory plays a part, with its dangerously seductive rhythms portraying a gorgeous, haunted vision of a civilisation dancing into the abyss. This concert has been especially developed with the Southbank Centre and Circa, Australia’s internationally renowned circus company, and will feature cross-artform performance, with further details to be announced.
