Burberry and the new head of the creative house, Daniel Lee, are working with award-winning director and choreographer Wayne McGregor to create the costumes for his new work at London’s Royal Ballet.

McGregor’s new, as-yet-untitled ballet production will premiere on June 9 at London’s Royal Opera House.

McGregor said he wanted to assemble “an all-star cast for the Royal Ballet’s extraordinary work with the late, great minimalist artist Carmen Herrera”.

He described Daniel Lee as an artist with “unbridled imagination” and said the Burberry designer “creates works of innovation, movement and piercing beauty. “With his extraordinary passion for all forms of dance, he seems the natural ally. Together, with the Burberry team, we are working on something truly special – honoring Carmen while forging our own evolutionary path.”

Daniel Lee said he was honored to have collaborated on the project. “I’ve always had a dream to create costumes for dance which is such a passion for me,” she said.

It will be McGregor’s 20th work for the Royal Ballet and follows the revival of ‘Wolf Works’ in March 2023, as well as ‘The Dante Project’ which premiered in 2021 to great success.
