Running Time:
150mins
Genre:
Opera
Starring:
Liam Scarlett, Cathy Marston
Synopsis:
The scheduled premiere and live relay of Liam Scarlett’s new work has sadly been postponed to a later date in a subsequent season. Dances at a Gathering by Jerome Robbins replaces Scarlett’s ballet as part of the double bill. Dances at a Gathering will be performed alongside the world premiere of Cathy Marston’s The Cellist. This is Marston’s first work for the Company on the Main Stage and is inspired by the life of Jacqueline du Pré who is regarded as one of the greatest cellists of all time. 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.
