Agnus Dei, a solo choreographed by Arthur Pita to music by Rufus Wainwright, which set a glamorously agonised Leo Dixon floating in midair across the auditorium. "
Featuring Royal Ballet First Artist Leo Dixon, this poetic solo was captured on the main stage of the Royal Opera House during lockdown.
