Royal Ballet Soloists Claire Calvert and Eric Underwood recently swapped the sprung-floored rehearsal studios of the Royal Opera House for leafy Richmond Park to shoot a short film for Deloitte Ignite 2014.

Claire and Eric worked with choreographer Charlotte Edmonds on the film, which is inspired by the myth of Leda and the Swan. It will have its premiere as part of Sampling the Myth on 5 September, alongside film commissions from choreographers Kim Brandstrup and Robert Binet.
