The Royal Ballet is currently celebrating English style in ballet, with a mixed programme of some of Frederick Ashton’s most iconic works, including the abstract masterpiece, Symphonic Variations (which the company had last performed in 2007). Alice Pennefather dropped by the general rehearsal to capture these lovely images:
