Essential Royal Ballet Blu-ray

Presented at the iconic Royal Opera House, BBC presenter Katie Derham weaves the history of ballet through carefully curated excerpts from the past decade of Royal Ballet performances and goes behind the scenes to see what it takes to be a dancer in the company of The Royal Ballet as they prepare to take to the stage.

From the great classics of The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker to the exciting frontiers of contemporary dance, Katie takes us on a tour through the repertory, showcasing the diversity of the UK’s biggest ballet company. With stunning solos, passionate pas de deux and jaw-dropping numbers for the corps de ballet, it is a chance to see your favourite dancers up close, including Carlos Acosta, Marianela Nuñez, Vadim Muntagirov, Natalia Osipova and Steven McRae, alongside rising stars like Francesca Hayward and Matthew Ball, who will introduce their favourite ballets and share stories of their life on the stage.

I bought my ballerina daughters 2 t-shirts, postcards (that we framed) and a Blu-Ray and everything was amazing. The t-shirts are so beautiful and well made, postcards made great ballet decorations for their rooms and the blu-ray has already been watched and studied multiple times. The items were shipped so quickly to the USA and I paid for gift wrapping which was definitely worth it! It is my daughters dreams to dance at the Royal Ballet one day and this has given them more inspiration to keep working hard!
