THE ROYAL BALLET: THE CELLIST/DANCES AT GATHERING
February 25th 7:15 pm
THE ROYAL 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 Pre. 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.
