Don’t just take a lunchbreak, take a break from the everyday. Join us for Alice Topp’s Aurum, which premiered in 2018 to lavish praise from audiences and critics for its powerful movement, raw emotion and stunning gilded design. This performance will be accompanied by live orchestra, and will include an introduction to the work by Resident Choreographer Alice Topp and Artistic Director David McAllister.

Can’t make a lunchtime performance? See Aurum as part of our Verve season.

The dancers, the music, the softness, the love, the poetry, the lighting. The pure beauty of it all brought tears to my eyes.
