We're teaming up with A Younger Theatre to give an exclusive insight into The Royal Ballet's production of Romeo and Juliet as it is broadcast live to over 700 cinemas around the world on 22 March.

Six people aged between 18 and 26 will be live tweeting and blogging about their experience of seeing a ballet for the first time, as well as giving a glimpse behind the scenes with backstage access prior to the performance.Tweeting will happen before and after the performance as well as during the intervals.

If you'd like to be one of the six, have never previously attended a performance by The Royal Ballet, are digitally competent and use social media, apply online. If you're in the Royal Opera House or in the cinema that evening, tweet your thoughts with the hashtag #ROHmeo.We are planning to show a selection of tweets on-screen during the second interval. Please don't tweet during the performance itself.

AYT also hosts events, offers competitions and ticket offers, and is partnered with The Guardian’s Culture Professionals Network. AYT was named About.com’s Top Theatre Blog of 2011.

The deadline for applications is noon on 15 March.
