New English Ballet Theatre premiere of Wayne Eagling’s REMEMBRANCE on 15 October 2020

New English Ballet Theatre is premiering the film of Wayne Eagling’s dynamic narrative ballet, ‘REMEMBRANCE’, on 15 October 2020 at 7.30pm.

Remembrance is a gorgeous, narrative ballet set in 1918 and inspired by the romance between the great Marie Rambert (who established Rambert, Britain’s oldest dance company) and the playwright Ashley Dukes. 

Rambert and Dukes met at a dinner party in 1917 when he was on brief Army leave from the war and within four days they’d fallen in love!  He was then recalled to the front and after seven months of correspondence – during which time he proposed to her – they married in 1918.  The ballet is set to the beautiful Ode for St Cecilia’s Day by Handel.
