It’s collaborating with director and choreographer Wayne McGregor with Chief Creative Officer Daniel Lee designing the costumes for his latest work. 

McGregor is the Resident Choreographer at The Royal Ballet and his new production will receive its world premiere on 9 June at the Royal Opera House in London. 

They yet-to-be-named new one-act work is set to music by Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir, with the set design by the late Cuban-born American minimalist artist Carmen Herrera, who died aged 106 in 2022.

McGregor said that “for this extraordinary Royal Ballet project with the late, great minimalist artist Carmen Herrera we dreamt of collecting together a stellar team. Daniel Lee, an artist with unbridled imagination, is creating work of innovation, motion, and piercing beauty. And with his exceptional passion for all forms of dance, he felt like a natural ally. Together, with the Burberry team, we are working on something truly special.”

Meanwhile Burberry said that reflecting its focus on its “spirit of modern Britishness, The Royal Ballet champions the best of contemporary culture and creativity”.
