The Royal Ballet presents the world premiere of Cathy Marston's first work for the Royal Opera Ballet on the Main Stage alongside a revival of Jerome Robbins's timeless classic of pure dance. Ballet and art lovers are invited to experience this astonishing performance on the big screen in HD quality.

This contemporary performance will be broadcasted LIVE exclusively at the Eden Cinemas on Tuesday 25 February at 8.15pm, with an encore on Sunday 1 March at 4pm.


Choreographer Cathy Marston is previously an Associate Artist of the Royal Opera House and Director of Bern Ballett, and much in demand also internationally. During her tenure as Associate Artist, Marston's signature emerged, as she sought movement-based forms for telling stories, emotions and ideas.

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 first part of the programme. This exercise in pure dance for five couples, set to music by Chopin, is a masterpiece of subtlety and invention. A new work by Liam Scarlett, The Royal Ballet's Artist in Residence, provides the second part of the programme, Dances at a Gathering.
