Royal Opera House announces a special insight free stream


The Royal Opera House is delighted to continue its #OurHouseToYourHouse programme, featuring online broadcasts that can be accessed by audiences around the world.

Join The Royal Ballet on Friday 7 May at 7pm GMT for a FREE stream of a very special behind-the-scenes glimpse into class and coaching with the youngest members of the Company. Presented by Rehearsal Director Christopher Saunders, this Insight introduces the most recent dancers to join the Aud Jebsen Young Dancer Programme and this Season’s recipient of the Prix de Lausanne scholarship placement.

See the dedication and commitment required of the dancers in their daily training and hear from them as they share their thoughts on joining one of the world’s most prestigious ballet companies. The Aud Jebsen Young Dancer Programme was established in 2014 and provides recently graduated dancers a year’s contract to be nurtured and perform alongside the corps de ballet of The Royal Ballet. This programme, most generously supported by Aud Jebsen, is central to The Royal Ballet’s commitment to support emerging talent and since its inception has provided contracts for 40 dancers at the first stage of their careers.
