A change to the original programme.
The Cellist is inspired by the life and career of cellist Jacqueline du Pré and is choreographer, Cathy Marston’s first main-stage work for The Royal Ballet. The piece will be performed by stars of The Royal Ballet including Principals Lauren Cuthbertson and Matthew Ball and Marceleno Sambe (winner of the Critics Circle 'Best Male Dancer' 2020).
This new ballet is paired with Dances at Gathering, by five-times Tony Award-winner and celebrated Broadway choreographer, Jerome Robbins. This fabulous ballet makes a welcome return to The Royal Ballet after a long absence from its repertory. Dances at Gathering demonstrates the elegance and grace of five couples who dance in unison to Chopin’s ravishing score.
