The Cellist / Dances at a Gathering

BUY TICKETS 7.15pm Tuesday 25 February

BALLET double bill broadcast live from the Royal Opera House 

Ballet double bill of Cathy Marston’s new ballet inspired by the life of Jacqueline du Pré and Jerome Robbins’ elegant and elegiac classic.

Jerome Robbins’s elegant and elegiac classic opens the programme. This exercise in pure dance for five couples, set to music by Chopin, is a masterpiece of subtlety and invention.

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. The Cellist will be danced by Lauren Cuthbertson, Matthew Ball and Calvin Richardson.
