Details

While Britten wrote just one ballet score, his music has inspired some of the world's leading choreographers - none more so that Richard Alston, whose rich body of work features Britten as a recurring theme.

"I discovered Britten's music very young", say Alston. "There is something very direct, pared-down and extraordinary about it. It reaches people."

Richard Alston Dance Company and an enviable line-up of musicians provide the centrepiece of the 2016 Britten Weekend, including the world premiere of a brand new work and revivals of pieces made over an illustrious career.

By contrast Joseph Toonga approaches Britten's music from a background in urban dance and hip hop, an exciting fresh addition to the roster of Britten Dances.
In addition to the dance performances, there is a Study Morning offering insights into the choreographer's world and Britten Sinfonia, Leonard Elschenbroich, Pekka Kuusisto and Aldeburgh Voices perform more music by Britten alongside Bridge and Tavener.

Britten Dances is presented by Aldeburgh Music and DanceEast.
