The Royal Ballet’s world premiere of The Cellist broadcast live in UK cinemas this February
The world premiere of Cathy Marston’s The Cellist, paired with acclaimed choreographer Jerome Robbins’s Dances at a Gathering, will be broadcast live in 600 UK cinemas on Tuesday 25 February 2020 with an encore screening on Sunday 1 March 2020.
The Cellist is inspired by the life and career of cellist Jacqueline du Pré and is choreographer Cathy Marston’s first main-stage work for The Royal Ballet. The piece will be performed by stars of The Royal Ballet including Principals Lauren Cuthbertson and Matthew Ball and Soloist Calvin Richardson. This new ballet is paired with Dances at Gathering, by five-times Tony Award-winner and celebrated Broadway choreographer Jerome Robbins. This fabulous ballet makes a welcome return to The Royal Ballet after a long absence from its repertory. Dances at Gathering demonstrates the elegance and grace of five couples who dance in unison to Chopin’s ravishing score.
