Gala Ballet Event
Special Presentation! A stunning roster of Royal Ballet Principals dancers lead a gala performance not to be missed, their sparkling talents a perfect fit for a diamond anniversary. Celebrating 60 years of The Friends of Covent Garden, this showcase will demonstrate the breadth and diversity of The Royal Ballet’s repertory in classical, contemporary and heritage works.
The programme includes world premieres of short ballets by choreographers Pam Tanowitz, Joseph Toonga and Royal Ballet First Soloist Valentino Zucchetti, as well as The Royal Ballet’s first performance of Christopher Wheeldon's virtuosic pas de quatre For Four (2006) set to Schubert, and a performance of George Balanchine’s elegant Diamonds (1967) set to Tchaikovsky.
