Ballet, Ballet News

Royal Ballet changes to casting are not unusual, however I wanted to let you know about two significant changes, confirmed by the press office, for upcoming performances at The Royal Opera House.

Lauren Cuthbertson will not dance any of her scheduled performances due to ill health.  She will be replaced in The Sleeping Beauty by Mariinsky First Soloist Yevgenia Obraztsova, who is Guesting with the Company on 31st October and 14th and 21st November.

Viacheslav Samaodurov will not be dancing his scheduled performances in The Sleeping Beauty and is replaced by Steven McRae on 31st October and 6th and 14th November; significant as this marks his debut as Prince Florimund.
