Royal Ballet set for performances at The O2
Date Posted: 25/11/10
The Royal Ballet will perform at The O2 next year, in what will be the world famous company's first ever shows in a UK arena.
Carlos Acosta, Tamara Rojo, Alina Cojocaru and Johan Kobborg will all dance the main roles in Romeo and Juliet between Friday 17th and Sunday June 19th.
Those wanting to book hotels near The O2 arena have been informed that tickets for the event will go on sale on Sunday December 5th, costing between £60 and £95.
"This opportunity fits perfectly with our commitment to ensuring that as wide an audience as possible is able to enjoy live performances by The Royal Ballet at affordable prices," said Tony Hall, chief executive of the Royal Opera House.
Dame Monica Mason, director of the ballet company, added that she was "thrilled" that the production was being shown in such a huge venue.
Recently, the Royal Ballet's Cinderella, at the Royal Opera House, was given a three-star rating by the Independent's Zoe Anderson.
