Ballet Zürich’s ‘Atonement’ featuring a score by Laura Rossi will have its world premiere on Sunday, 28th April at Zurich Opera House.

Based on the novel by Ian McEwan, the ballet is choreographed by Cathy Marston. Laura’s score will be performed by the Philharmonia Zurich conducted by Jonathan Lo.

‘In her first new creation for the Ballett Zürich, Cathy Marston and her longtime artistic partner Edward Kemp transfer the action of Atonement to the world of ballet. In their adaptation, Briony Tallis becomes a celebrated choreographer who attempts to come to terms with the fateful transgressions of her youth in her dance pieces. With her large-scale narrative ballet, Cathy Marston reflects on the minor and major self-deceptions that shape our memories, and on the difficulty of dealing with guilt – the guilt of others, but especially our own.’
