Woolf Works – Orlando pas de deux (Natalia Osipova, Edward Watson; The Royal Ballet)
Wayne McGregor’s award-winning ballet triptych is inspired by the writings of Virginia Woolf, with an original score by Max Richter. Principals of The Royal Ballet Natalia Osipova and Edward Watson perform the Orlando pas de deux. The DVD of Woolf Works is now available https://shop.roh.org.uk/collections/new-releases/products/woolf-works-dvd-the-royal-ballet Virginia Woolf's writing defied the order of narrative conventions to depict a heightened, startling and poignant reality. Each of the three acts springs from one of Woolf's landmark novels: Mrs Dalloway, Orlando and The Waves – but these inspirations are also woven with elements from her letters, essays and diaries. Woolf Works expresses the heart of an artistic life driven to discover a freer, uniquely modern realism, and brings to life Woolf's world of 'granite and rainbow', where human beings are at once both physical body and unconfined essence. Woolf Works (2015) was Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor's first full-length work for The Royal Ballet. The production was a union of his distinctive choreography with the sensory aesthetic of Virginia Woolf’s modernist writing. Both have broken new ground, a century apart. A stellar creative team and new score by Max Richter, who previously collaborated with McGregor on Infra (2008), challenge us to experience Virginia Woolf's work in a new light.
