Yugen

Talking of beautiful things, we went last night to see the three ballets performed in honour of Leonard Bernstein’s death, including Yugen, based on the Chichester Psalms, commissioned by Walter Hussey, the Dean of Chichester Cathedral from 1955 to 1977.   The set design was by Edmund de Waal, very simple, large vitrines, but appropriate for the intensity of the dance.

    For those of us who can’t afford ROH prices – or at least only the ones that give no view – there is a live relay of this to cinemas on March 27th. And anyone who gets the opportunity (as I did recently) should tour Wayne McGregor’s studios at Here East. He has a connection with the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation which is reflected in, among other things, a wonderful floor design.
