Tamara Rojo brings Raymonda into the setting of the Crimean War

Tamara Rojo, Artistic Director of English National Ballet, will create a new version of the classic 19th-century ballet, Raymonda, originally choreographed by Marius Petipa. The Finnish premiere of the co-production between English National Ballet and the Finnish National Ballet will take place in November 2021.

The original Raymonda had its world premiere in 1898. Its title character, a medieval noblewoman, has to choose between the safe and noble crusader Jean de Brienne and the mysterious Saracen knight Abderahman.

Rojo brings the story into the setting of the Crimean War in the 1850s, drawing inspiration from the ground-breaking spirit and work of the women supporting the war effort. In homage to the pioneering nurse, Florence Nightingale, in her bicentennial year, Raymonda is recast as a young woman with a calling to become a nurse.
