The Royal Ballet Screening: The Cellist / Dances at a Gathering

at Thornden Concert Hall, Eastleigh

This event has been and gone.

Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser

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.

The scheduled premiere and live relay of Liam Scarlett’s new work has sadly been postponed to a later date in a subsequent season. Jerome Robbins’s elegant and elegiac classic forms the second part of the programme. Dances at a Gathering is an exercise in pure dance for five couples, set to music by Chopin, and is a masterpiece of subtlety and invention.

Approximate running time: about 2 hours 30 minutes
