SCREENING: ROYAL OPERA HOUSE CINEMA SEASON 2019/20 (BALLET)
The Cellist / Dances at a Gathering
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.
PLEASE NOTE THIS LIVE SCREENING BEGINS AT 7.15PM
Approximate running time: about 2 hours 40 minutes including one interval.
