Aletta Collins rehearses new ballet Blue Moon with an all-female cast (The Royal Ballet)
Aletta Collins creates an exciting new work set to music by David Sawer. She explains, 'the personal challenge I wanted to take on this was to work en pointe. I decided that I'd like to then just work with women.' Blue Moon features Royal Ballet dancers Romany Pajdak, Mayara Magri, Mica Bradbury, Fumi Kaneko, Beatriz Stix-Brunell, Kristen McNally and Hannah Grennell.
The Royal Ballet will make its first appearance in the newly-refurbished Linbury Theatre, performing five world premieres to contemporary music never before used for dance. Find out more about New Work New Music here https://www.roh.org.uk/productions/new-work-new-music-by-various
