English National Ballet and Winser London

Win four tickets to the Opening Night of She Persisted by the English National Ballet at Sadler’s Wells, London on Thursday 4th April 2019

She Persisted is an all-female choreography programme.

It tells three iconic stories and shows three bold works on and by women.

Broken Wings
Iconic painter Frida Kahlo is the heroine of Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Broken Wings, a colourful ballet full of warmth and passion. Based on Kahlo’s life and art, it is “a marvellous image of creativity and power” (The Independent).

Nora
Stina Quagebeur choreographs her first work for the main stage. Nora is inspired by the lead character in Henrik Ibsen’s play A Doll’s House, a woman on the path to independence.

Le Sacre du printemps (The Rite of Spring)
Pina Bausch’s production features 13 male and 13 female dancers on a stage covered in soil. Dancing the selection and sacrifice of a terrified victim, it is as gut-wrenching and galvanising as Stravinsky’s score, performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic. Le Sacre du printemps returns following sold out performances in 2017.

Cashmere from Winser London

Continuing the London theme we have a luxurious and soft cashmere jumper from Winser London

Everyone on the Charity Gala committee has fallen in love with this piece!

To top off this fabulous package you will also receive vouchers for Sophie’s Steak House in London and ten silverplated shot glasses from British Silverware
