About Molto

Drama, laughter and pure physical power: Molto offers two works by our resident choreographers Stephen Baynes and Tim Harbour and one by Sir Frederick Ashton, a giant of 20th-century dance.

Frederick Ashton’s A Month in the Country compresses the emotion of Turgenev’s play into 40 minutes of sublime and expressive dance, set to the music of Chopin. Tim Harbour’s Squander and Glory uses lightning-fast, complex movement to play with ideas of excess energy, pressure and release, while Stephen Baynes’ Molto Vivace is a giddy frolic in a garden, with a design that goes from pristine white to neon bright, set to the music of Handel.

This diverse trio of stellar works will tick all your ballet boxes.
