Nimbus was Wayne McGregor's first work as Resident Choreographer for The Royal Ballet following his appointment in 2006. 

Specially commissioned for the World's Stage Gala at The Royal Opera House, Nimbus was set to Franz Schubert's 19th century piano solo Impromptu in G flat, op.90 no.3, marking a departure to McGregor's previous works with The Royal Ballet, Chroma and Qualia.
