" 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. The hauntingly empty auditorium and stage provide a stunning backdrop to Wainwright's music and Pita's movement.Agnus Dei (Lamb of God) provides a highly emotive musical backdrop for this stripped back film, which is both epic and intimate.

" Handsome choreography by Arthur Pita (performed by Leo Dixon) and some eye-catching stage magic in its final moments "
