About Pictures from an Exhibition

Pictures from an Exhibition
Friday 23 and Saturday 24 April
Sadler's Wells

Sadler's Wells and the Young Vic are delighted to offer London audiences a second chance to see this remarkable dance theatre collaboration inspired by, and set to, Modest Mussorgsky's classic piano suite Pictures from an Exhibition.

Moments from death, Mussorgsky's life flashes before his eyes. Vivid memories of his past and his closest relationships return in powerful fragments, brilliantly staged by director Daniel Kramer (Angels in America, Punch & Judy), choreographer Frauke Requardt and poet James Fenton.

"A dazzling mixture of movement, music and poetry. Dance needs to make more alliances like this one" - The Observer

"***** You'll see nothing else like it all year" - What's on Stage

Generally acknowledged to be his greatest solo piano composition, Modest Mussorgsky composed Pictures from an Exhibition in memory of his friend, the artist and architect Viktor Hartmann, in 1874.

In this Sadler's Wells and Young Vic co-production, Kramer and Requardt uncover a rich seam of emotion beneath the surface of Mussorgsky's classical composition. The most powerful urges of worship and domination, love and loss, death and commemoration burst out of the music and onto the stage in a beautiful nightmare.
