Event Details

Online premiere: Friday 29 May 2020 at 7pm BST, broadcast free online as part of the Royal Opera House’s #OurHouseToYourHouse series.

Cathy Marston’s first work for the Royal Opera House Main Stage is a lyrical memoir of the momentous life of the cellist Jacqueline du Pré, from her discovery of the cello through her celebrity as one of the most extraordinary players of the instrument to her frustration and struggle with multiple sclerosis.

Rich and poignant, joyous and tragic, The Cellist draws on the talents of The Royal Ballet’s Principals, Character Artists, Soloists and Corps to tell the moving story of the cellist’s life. Composer Philip Feeney incorporates some of the most moving and powerful cello music of Elgar, Beethoven, Fauré, Mendelssohn, Piatti, Rachmaninoff and Schubert into an exquisite score that is itself an homage to the cello.

The Cellist was first performed in February 2020 and this recording was broadcast live to cinemas on 25 February .
