To continue The Royal Ballet's celebrations of 70 years in residence at the Royal Opera House, the event explored the three works that comprise The Royal Ballet's upcoming mixed programme of works by Founder Choreographer Frederick Ashton: The Dream, Symphonic Variations, and Marguerite and Armand.
Among other highlights, the livestream saw Zenaida Yanowsky and Gary Avis rehearsing Marguerite and Armand with former Principal-turned-Répétiteur Jonathan Cope, and Francesca Hayward and Marcelino Sambé being coached through an extract from The Dream. It also featured short interviews and a panel discussion exploring Ashton's legacy featuring Company Director Kevin O'Hare and former Principal-turned-Répétiteur Lesley Collier.
