Premiered in London's Peacock Theatre in 2018, Wayne Eagling's Remembrance was inspired by the romance between Marie Rambert and the playwright Ashley Dukes, who met at a dinner party in 1917 when he was on brief Army leave from the war. They fell in love in four days! Dukes was then recalled to the front and after seven months of correspondence they married in 1918. The ballet is set to Handel's Ode for St Cecilia’s Day and the cast includes Alessia Lugoboni as Marie Rambert and Alexander Nuttall as Ashley Dukes. The film will be premiered on NEBT’s YouTube channel on 15 October, 19:30 and will be available free-to-view until 15 December.
