Watch Party: Broken Wings
Iconic painter Frida Kahlo is the heroine of this vibrant ballet full of warmth and passion.
Based on Kahlo’s life and art, Broken Wings is “a marvellous image of creativity and power” (The Independent), filled with colourful Fridas, mischievous day-of-the-dead skeletons and dancing birds. The music, by Peter Salem, is performed by English National Ballet Philharmonic.
The ballet will remain online until Friday 24 April 8pm BST, when choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa will catch up with ENB Artistic Director Tamara Rojo for a special remote discussion of the work and Q&A: click here to watch.
