As it is now clear that ROH performances will have to be suspended well beyond 19th April, we are sad to inform you that the remainder of the current 2019/20 cinema season is now cancelled and with it all our upcoming ROH cinema screenings including Cavalleria Rusticana &Pagliacci, Dante and Elektra.
We continue to closely follow all governmental guidance regarding COVID-19 and will update you on our plans as soon as we have any new information. We are in conversation with the Distributors to see if we are able to make a few pre-recorded ROH productions (Fidelio, Swan Lake and Cavalleria Rusticana &Pagliacci) available once we are able to re-open.
If you have already purchased tickets, a member of the Box Office team will be in contact shortly to arrange a refund.
Dante’s Divine Comedy is an epic journey through the afterlife: it encompasses the horrifying drama of Inferno and its damned, the lyrical mysticism of pilgrims on mount Purgatorio and the dazzling spheres of Paradiso with their endless configurations of light. The poem was inspired by the agony of Dante’s own exile, and traces his path from crisis to revelation guided by his literary hero Virgil and his lost love Beatrice. In this new work, The Royal Ballet’s trailblazing Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor collaborates with an award-winning team – contemporary composer Thomas Adès, artist Tacita Dean, lighting designer Lucy Carter and dramaturg Uzma Hameed – to bring us closer to Dante and his extraordinary vision.
