Kol Nidre bal­let

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

THE strains of Max Bruch’s Kol Nidre will echo around the Lon­don Pal­la­dium on the last night of Septem­ber when it forms the mu­si­cal set­ting for a new bal­let.

The pre­miere of Ne­shamot (“Souls”) will fea­ture in a va­ri­ety show which marks the 10th an­niver­sary of the breast can­cer char­ity Fu­ture Dreams.

Per­formed by dancers from the Birm­ing­ham Royal Bal­let, it was com­mis­sioned from lead­ing young chore­og­ra­pher Ruth Brill (right) by the bal­let’s cre­ative pro­ducer

Jim Fletcher, vice-chair­man of ex­ter­nal af­fairs at West Lon­don Syn­a­gogue.

“The mu­sic is per­fect be­cause there are mo­ments of strug­gle, but we can hear hope through­out,”

Ms Brill said.
