Yeo Valley Organic to host guest artists of The Royal Ballet in Somerset

Description

Guest Artists of The Royal Ballet, one of the world’s greatest ballet companies will travel to Somerset in July, for two special open-air performances.  

The performances will feature an impressive lineup of world-class dancers and outstanding musicians and will include the work of some of the most celebrated choreographers – Kenneth MacMillan, Marius Petipa, Christopher Wheeldon and Wayne McGregor - in an afternoon of classical and contemporary dance. 

Yeo Valley Organic will be hosting the event with Muse à Muse in the Yeo Valley Organic Garden overlooking the picturesque Blagdon Lake at 3pm on Saturday 17th July and Sunday 18th July 2021. 

“We are really excited to bring guest artists of The Royal Ballet to the South West for two exclusive performances in our beautiful Organic Garden, as well as workshops and classes for the surrounding arts community,” says Sarah Mead, Yeo Valley’s Creative Director. 

Johanna Adams Farley, President of Muse à Muse and Senior Stage Manager of the Royal Ballet said: “Muse à Muse had to postpone our planned return to France, with this special group of dancers and musicians, however, what was initially a disappointing moment is now one which is extremely exciting. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to bring dance to this very stunning part of England in what is quite simply the truly perfect setting. A huge thank you to Tim and Sarah Mead and all at Yeo Valley Organic.” 

Royal Ballet supporter and joint organiser Judith Batchelar added: “I’m pleased to be involved with Dance in Somerset, and what is the perfect partnership. This weekend will create a memorable cultural experience in the West Country that promotes the power of the performing arts and will inspire the next generation of performers.” 

Since the initial lockdown, as we know, the arts have been heavily impacted. Proceeds will go towards supporting The Royal Opera House Covent Garden Foundation.  

Muse à Muse is a non-profit making arts association which aims to create memorable, cultural experiences to promote the performing arts. 

Sarah Mead added: “It’s a truly unique location for a ballet performance, rather than transporting yourself to London, you can visit locally in this one-of-a-kind open-air performance by Blagdon Lake.” 

The venue will open at 12pm for food and drink from local producers, allowing guests time to explore the garden ahead of the performance which starts at 3pm.
