The Royal Ballet 2011-2012 Season at a Glance

European summer is almost over (although here in Britain it never really began) and ballet companies around the world are getting ready to kick off their new seasons. The Royal Ballet is set to return to Covent Garden in a few weeks with Balanchine’s Jewels. Taking inspiration from one of our favorite magazines, Wired, we geeked out and prepared this infographic showing what the company has in store for us over the next ten months:

We started The Ballet Bag in April 2009 with the mission to prove that ballet is not stuffy, old fashioned and inaccessible; that it is quite the opposite: relevant, fresh and topical. With the aim to Give Ballet a New Spin we try to show it under a different light. When writing our capsule biographies, ballet fact cards, review roundups and commentary on social media, we cross it over with other art forms and cultural references (pop culture, cinema, rock music – ie. other things we love!).
