FRIDA – DUTCH NATIONAL BALLET
An extended full-length version of Broken Wings - a ballet about the life and creativity of Frida Kahlo. Originally a 45 minute piece for English National Ballet this colourful and vibrant full-length ballet for Dutch National Ballet was premiered in February 2020 to rapturous receptions during it's sold-out run in Amsterdam.
Peter Salem’s expanded score integrates well with the narrative, providing clarity of themes for each character and group in Frida’s imagination and linking fluidly with the story . . . [his] excellent bespoke score, performed by the Het Balletorkest under the direction of Matthew Rowe. — DanceTabs
