( Serenade | Enigma Variations | 'Still Life' at the Penguin Café )

At a glance
Balanchine's Serenade is beautiful abstract dance to glorious music, whilst in Ashton's Enigma Variations, Edward Elgar and his friends are brought to life in dance. David Bintley's 'Still Life' at the Penguin Café gives you the chance to meet a many and varied, amusing and touching array of creatures seeking shelter from the storm.

Not to be missed. Why?
A great opportunity to see three very different ballets: beautiful pure dance, an Edwardian period piece and a perennially popular showstopper.

Probably the one chance you’ll ever get to see Edward Elgar and a morris-dancing flea on stage in the same evening!

Performance length

Approx 2 hours and 29 minutes
