Christopher Wheeldon created Within the Golden Hour for San Francisco Ballet in 2008, as part of their New Works Festival in celebration of the company’s 75th anniversary. Italian minimalist composer Ezio Bosso created the original score for strings, incorporating music by Vivaldi. It was first performed by The Royal Ballet in 2016.

Within the Golden Hour is structured into sections, accentuated by Jasper Conran’s designs. Around three central pas de deux, the ballet exhibits Wheeldon’s characteristic complex handling of ensembles, in the process creating intricate lattice works that shift and mutate in this reflection on the beauty of movement.

Music Andante from Violin Concerto in B-flat major, RV.583 ‘in due cori’ by Antonio Vivaldi arranged by Ezio Bosso. Conducted by Jonathan Lo, performed by the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House with Vasko Vassilev, concertmaster and soloist.
