The Royal Ballet Dances Frederick Ashton, a mixed programme of five ballets by the choreographer, will be screened in selected UK cinemas on 15 July. It has yet to be confirmed whether the programme will be shown around the world.

The mixed programme features La Valse, Méditation from Thaïs, Voices of Spring, Monotones I and II and Marguerite and Armand, the last of which features the final Royal Ballet performance of Tamara Rojo, partnered by Sergei Polunin. Principal dancer Leanne Benjamin, who announced her retirement from The Royal Ballet this week after 21 years with the Company, dances Méditation from Thaïs.

Venue details will be available from the Royal Opera House cinema website in due course.

  2. Any chance this will go to cinemas again? didn't realise this was on and in so many cinemas now! My mother really would love to see what I was so lucky to see live. If not is there a chance of catching this and some other great performances from recent recorded departures ( alina cojocaru and leanne benjamin) on bluray/dvd soon? please!
