Following Tamara Rojo's appearance on BBC Radio 3's Private Passions on Sunday 8 January at 12pm, we've put together a gallery of photos featuring the Principal Artist.

Tamara joined The Royal Ballet in 2000 and was promoted to the rank of Principal that same year. She is a regular guest artist with The Mariinsky Ballet, La Scala Ballet, Tokyo Ballet, Ballet Nacional de Cuba as well as a host of other companies. The dancer has received a number of awards to date including two of Spain’s highest Honours; The Prince of Asturias Award and the Gold Medal of Fine Arts, presented by King Juan Carlos.

Sunday saw fans of the Royal Ballet glued to their radios, as Dame Monica Mason appeared on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs immediately before Tamara’s Radio 3 slot.

You can see Tamara on stage with The Royal Ballet in Romeo and Juliet (with Carlos Acosta) and The Dream/Song of the Earth.

    Tamara Rojo is a ballet great as well as intelligent, articulate and glamorous. I look forward enormously to this broadcast.

    Tamara is a wonderful dancer, she portrays her character with passion and drama. On stage she is enormous, full of radiance and elegance. Personally (at the stage entrance after a performance) she is petite and friendly and warm.

    Private passions was fantastic, if you didn't hear it get onto IPlayer and find it. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b018sn1g#synopsis

    It was lovely to listen to two people who clearly have a love of music and ballet get to the heart of art.

    An absolute gem of a programme.

  4. R@J was a sumptuous production. Rojo & Acosta brilliant individually, and superb as a duo. Utterly memorable.
