The production for the touring band of principals and soloists from the Royal Danish Ballet was bare bones: no sets, minimal costumes. Nothing but good dancers and the choreography of the company’s greatest ballet master, August Bournonville. But that’s more than enough for a great performance, and when the stars align – and they did – a miraculous evening.
