Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Prince of the Pagodas is a ballet created for The Royal Ballet in 1957, by choreographer John Cranko, with music commissioned from Benjamin Britten. The ballet was later revived in a new production by Kenneth MacMillan in 1989, achieving widespread acclaim for Darcey Bussell's premiere in a principal role. The world premiere of Cranko's original production took place on January 1, 1957, at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London, with MacMillan's production premiering at the same venue on December 7, 1989. A recording of the music was produced with Britten conducting the orchestra of the Royal Opera House.show more
