Asphodel Meadows takes its name from a section of the Greek underworld where ordinary souls spend life after death. Its choreographic movement is pure and classic; with glimpses of emotion and character inspired by the music. The set is dark and spare, with a sense of tranquillity and space. The cast of 20 includes six star principal dancers, such as Sarah Lamb, Laura Morera, Ricardo Cervera, Leanne Benjamin, Marianela Nuñez and Edward Watson. These superlative performers know Scarlett well and have been generous in working with him to produce three distinct new duets. These form the centrepiece of each of the ballet’s three movements. The corps are often on stage with the principals, echoing and complimenting the main action.
