ROH: The Cellist/Dances at a Gathering (12A)
Royal Ballet – World Premiere by Cathy Marston
Cathy Marston has previously been an Associate Artist of the Royal Opera House and Director of Bern Ballett, and is much in demand internationally. The inspiration for her first work for The Royal Ballet Main Stage is the momentous life and career of the cellist Jacqueline du Pré. Jerome Robbins’s elegant and elegiac classic forms the second part of the programme. This exercise in pure dance for five couples, set to music by Chopin, is a masterpiece of subtlety and invention.
Approximate running time: about 2 hours 30 minutes
Please Note This event was originally planned to feature a premiere of new work by by Liam Scarlett. This has sadly been postponed to a future season.
This is a cinema event. Broadcast live from the Royal Opera House
