Enigma Variations

What's it about?
The music at the heart of Enigma Variations had proved to be Edward Elgar’s springboard to international fame, containing such notable pieces as the majestic 'Nimrod'. The piece is a series of musical sketches of Elgar's friends and Ashton's ballet picks up this idea and gives new life to each character.

Performance length
