Plot Sypnosis:

A stunning set showcasing the artistry of Lauren Cuthbertson through five beautiful ballets.

Since joining The Royal Ballet in 2002, Lauren Cuthbertson has become a much-loved member of the company and this special boxed set showcases why – combining five outstanding performances by one of the world’s leading ballerinas.

This collection includes two iconic roles she created for The Royal Ballet: the fun-filled, eponymous Alice (“the part she was born to play.”The Daily Telegraph), in Christopher Wheeldon’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland; and Jacqueline du Pré in the biographical work The Cellist by Cathy Marston. The latter is paired with Frederick Ashton’s delightful The Two Pigeons in a new collection created especially for this box. Finally, two all-time classics feature Lauren as the Sugar-Plum Fairy in Peter Wright’s magical production of The Nutcracker, and then as a heart-breaking Juliet in Kenneth MacMillan’s signature work, Romeo and Juliet.
“What a treat this is…” – MusicWeb International (Alice)

“…seamless, naturalistic, and musically attentive dance acting…” – New York Times (Romeo and Juliet)

“…fresh and reinvigorated…” – The Stage ***** (The Nutcracker)
