The Royal Ballet’s unique collaboration with the National Gallery, Metamorphosis: Titian 2012, is to be commemorated with a luxury limited edition book. Containing a mixture of rehearsal and production imagery, the book will tell the story of the project from conception to stage.

The limited edition, of which there will only be 250 copies, will include an introduction by former Director of The Royal Ballet Monica Mason and three original, signed works by artists involved in the project - Chris Ofili, Conrad Shawcross and Mark Wallinger.

Find out more about Metamorphosis: Titian 2012 in our news and feature section.

The limited edition book, published by Art / Books, will be out later this year, and a standard edition will be available to buy from January 2013. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for further release details.

The exhibition Metamorphosis: Titian 2012 at the National Gallery is open until 23 September. Admission is free.

    I do so agree with Patrick Shaw (above) and hope that there will be an Opus Arte release of the 'Metamorphosis' triple bill performances. As it was distributed widely on the 'Big Screen' presentation it will, hopefully, not be too big a problem. Incidentally ,the same goes for other 'Live' productions which the ROH has projected.

      We have checked with Opus Arte and, unfortunately, there are no plans for a release of Metamorphosis: Titian 2012 on DVD.

    The Opus Arte Web Site has had a "new website coming soon" notice for some months now. They do not reply to emails and I have been unable to discover news of any future releases, let alone Titan 2012. Is the company defunct?

      Dear David

      I've forwarded your message to the Opus Arte team and I'm sure that somebody will be in touch with you soon.

      There is an exciting slate of new releases planned, and the relaunched website will hopefully be available to showcase these soon.

      I do know, however, that there are no plans at present to release Metamorphosis: Titian 2012 on DVD, although I am not aware of the reasons for this.

      Best wishes
