Enjoy four short ballets with this mix of high energy, infatuation, bravura and passion. Carlos Acosta adapts and will dance the lead role in Carmen, his hugely anticipated new ballet on Bizet’s tragic tale of jealousy and desire; Liam Scarlett's Viscera features similarly audacious choreography; Jerome Robbins' seductive Afternoon of a Faun is set to Debussy; George Balanchine’s Tchaikovsky Pas de deux, is a breathtaking display of bravura and technique.

This filmed performance is the final ever for Carlos Acosta, Principal Guest Artist of the Royal Ballet for the past 17 years, and the cinema screening will incorporate a special presentation by the Royal Opera House to mark this occasion.

Hosted by Darcey Bussell and BBC journalist Fiona Bruce.
