Choreography: Cathy Marston Music: Philip Feeney
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.
Choreography: Jerome Robbins Music: Fryderyk Chopin
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.
Liam Scarlett’s previously billed new work is no longer featuring as part of this double bill. Cast and running time subject to change.
Please note that Dances at a Gathering will be performed before The Cellist.
