Frederick Ashton's The Two Pigeons in rehearsal – World Ballet Day 2015
Drive Featured Album, starting Monday 23 November 2015 after 6pm.
The Two Pigeons (Les Deux Pigeons) by André Messager is being staged by the Royal Ballet at the moment (the first time in 30 years) to 5-star reviews. So it's the perfect time to rediscover this fine recording by Barry Wordsworth and Royal Ballet Sinfonia.
Don't miss the chance to hear a selection of tracks from this rarely heard gem every day from 23-27 November after 6pm.
The Royal Ballet's dance work is choreographed by Frederick Ashton. You can see some of our favourite moments from the production in the gallery below.
