That’s what Insights are for. Every season a series of events in one of the Royal Opera House’s smaller venues gives an in-depth look at particular ballets and individual artists.
– Newly-minted Principal Dancer Yasmine Naghdi is featured in the first. At 25-years-old Naghdi is very much one of the Royal Ballet’s up and coming British stars. She will talk about her lightning rise to the top and what she describes as her ‘hugely rewarding’ profession.
At the Linden Studio Theatre, Royal Ballet School (across from the Royal Opera House on Floral Street) on 6 March 2018 at 19:30. Approx. Dur.: 1 hour and 15 minutes, no interval.
– The second of the Spring’s Insights focuses on MacMillan’s powerful ballet, Manon. Company staff and artists will be on hand the explain and discuss this extraordinary work.
At the ROH’s Clore Studio on 7 March at 19.30. Approx Dur.: 1 hour and 30 minutes, no interval.
– The Royal Ballet in rehearsal is the subject of third in the Insights series, where company dancers and coaches will give the audience a glimpse of the work that culminates in perfect stage performances.
At the Royal Ballet School Linden Studio Theatre on 4 April at 19.30. Approx Dur.: 1 hour and 15 minutes, no interval.
