The life and works of Virginia Woolf is the inspiration for multi award-winning choreographer Wayne McGregor's extraordinary triptych for The Royal Ballet, a deeply moving meditation of the 20th-century genius.

Described by The Guardian as “exhilarating and ravishingly expressive”, the three-act Olivier Award Winning ballet is inspired by three of Woolf’s novels Mrs Dalloway, Orlando and The Waves, and draws on aspects of the novelists own life. This innovative interpretation of the heightened, startling and poignant qualities of Woolf’s perception of herself is captured by the breath-taking soundscape of Max Richter’s haunting score.

Performed by a large ensemble of The Royal Ballet’s most powerful and talented dancers, the role of Virginia Woolf is danced by Alessandra Ferri who returned to The Royal Ballet stage after leaving the Company in 1985 to become a Principal dancer at American Ballet Theatre. She will dance alongside Principals Sarah Lamb, Natalia Osipova, Akane Takada, Francesca Hayward, Federico Bonelli, Steven McRae and Edward Watson.
