England, 1854. Raymonda runs away from her comfortable life to become a nurse in the Crimean War. There, she becomes engaged to a soldier, John, but soon develops feelings for his friend Abdur, a leader of the Ottoman army. As turmoil grows around and inside her, who will she give her heart to?

Production shot

The original Raymonda is one of the jewels of classical ballet, with exquisite choreography by Petipa (Swan Lake, Nutcracker) and one of the most glorious ballet scores ever written.

Over 100 dancers and musicians bring it to life, updated with a dramatic new story that celebrates the courage of nurses and women who fought for emancipation.

Don’t miss this magnificent production of a ballet classic that is rarely performed in the UK. Directed by ENB’s Artistic Director and acclaimed ballerina Tamara Rojo, it is bursting with beautiful music, stunning set pieces and superb dancing.

Please note: this performance contains two intervals.
