★★★★★ “…a heartbreaking love letter to Jacqueline du Pré and the magic of music” The Telegraph FULL REVIEW
★★★★”a joyfully giddy tribute to Jacqueline du Pré” The Guardian
Cathy Marston has previously been an Associate Artist of the Royal Opera House and Director of Bern Ballett, and is much in demand internationally. The inspiration for her first work for The Royal Ballet Main Stage is the momentous life and career of the cellist Jacqueline du Pré.
★★★★ The Stage
Jerome Robbins’s elegant and elegiac classic forms the second part of the programme. This exercise in pure dance for five couples, set to music by Chopin, is a masterpiece of subtlety and invention.
