Becs Andrews’ latest design project, the new ballet CASSANDRA, is the subject of a Royal Ballet Insight event on Tuesday 9th September. The one-off event at the Royal Opera House’s Linbury Studio, will be a conversation between the ballet’s choreographer Ludovic Ondivela, composer Ana Silvera and curator Dr Minna Moore Ede. The trio will examine the myth of Cassandra and perceptions of insanity; audiences will gain insight into the ideas which choregrapher, composer and designer have developed in the forthcoming ballet.
CASSANDRA is Ondiviela’s first Royal Ballet commission as choreographer, and Becs Andrews’ first Royal Ballet project as designer. The world premiere is on 30th October 2014. The first night is already sold out!
