ROH, Recorded Live
The Royal Ballet presents the world premiere of Cathy Marston’s first work for the Company on the Main Stage alongside a revival of Jerome Robbins’s timeless classic of pure dance.
Music: Philip Feeney, Fryderyk Chopin
Choreography: Cathy Marston, Jerome Robbins
Starring: The Royal Ballet
Choreographer Cathy Marston is previously an Associate Artist of the Royal Opera House and Director of Bern Ballett, and 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.
