For World Ballet Day today I thought I would share these photos that I took fifty years ago during rehearsal at the Royal Opera House, Covenant Garden. Happily the negatives are as pristine today as they were all those years ago when I took the film from my trusty Pentax Spotmatic SLR and headed for the dark room.
I posted the first photo in 2015 under the title Peeping Beauty.
After the sublime performance at the Royal Opera House today of the world premier of a new work choreographed by Wayne McGregor to Strauss’ Morgan danced by Francesca Hayward and Cesar Corrales, the company all took a knee in support of Black Lives Matter; a powerful and moving moment. Watch it on YouTube for the next 14 days and be moved too.
