The Cellist / Dances at a Gathering – Live Screening

Tue 25 February 2020, 7.15pm

Live Screening from the Royal Opera House

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.

Jerome Robbins’ Dances at a Gathering will be performed alongside the world premiere of Cathy Marston’s The Cellist.
