Martha Wainwright is set to reprise her role performing Will Tuckett’s interpretation of the Seven Deadly Sins with The Royal Ballet at The Royal Opera House.
Written by Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht in 1933, the performance was intended as a ’sung ballet,’ in which a singer and a dancer portray two sides of the same woman.
Martha naturally took to the stage in 2007 as the singing character of the ballet’s protagonist Anna – the chanteuse whose hard-headedness is countered by the vulnerable dancing Anna, played by Zenaida Yanowsky.
The Times wrote how Martha’s was a ‘plucky performance in which she reveals unexpected skills as an actress.’ You can bet this time around that she plans to win more plaudits, from fans and critics alike.
From 31st January to 21st February, she will appear alongside Zenaida in six performances, as part of The Royal Opera House’s Three Short Works programme. Ever supportive of the Wainwright clan, t5m will bring you more news on Martha’s latest maverick endeavour, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled.
