    Sarah Lamb, Calvin Richardson and artists of The Royal Ballet in Wayne McGregor's Yugen.

    Our Bernstein Celebration DVD is now available shop.roh.org.uk/products/bernstein-celebration-dvd-the-royal-balletnnLeonard Bernstein was one of the first classical composers in America to achieve both popular and critical acclaim.

    He was eclectic in his sources – drawing on jazz and modernism, the traditions of Jewish music and the Broadway musical – and many of Bernstein’s scores are remarkably well suited to dance.nnYugen is set to Bernstein's famous Chichester Psalms, a work for choir and orchestra.

    The text is sung in Hebrew, and follows the melodic and rhythmic contours of the Hebrew language.
