Ballet NEWS | The Royal Ballet, NEW CHOREOGRAPHIC WORKS

Ballet, Ballet News

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that there are still tickets available for these shows at the Royal Opera House.

For anyone not familiar with the Linbury Studio Theatre; it’s a self-contained space within the House, which offers a closer view of the dancers in a different setting than the main stage. I’d describe it as a very urban, modern space, lots of metal and black, and a complete contrast to the red and gold opulence of the main auditorium. The tickets here are usually much more within the reach of most people and the opportunities are sometimes unmissable.

I’d say this is one such opportunity.

NEW CHOREOGRAPHIC WORKS
14 & 15 May at 7.30pm, 16 May at 7.00pm

The Royal Ballet returns to the Linbury Studio Theatre with more imaginative new works from dancers of the Company including Principal dancers Johan Kobborg and Viacheslav Samodurov, First Artists Kristen McNally, Ludovic Ondiviela, Liam Scarlett and Jonathan Watkins, as well as a new piece from established choreographer Christopher Hampson. The pieces are a continuation of the commitment The Royal Ballet has for new choreography and will include performances by six Principal dancers – Tamara Rojo, Alina Cojocaru, Johan Kobborg, Laura Morera, Ivan Putrov and Mara Galeazzi.
