The Cellist
Philip Feeney’s new score for the Royal Ballet's new production The Cellist, with choreography by the award-winning Cathy Marston, received its world premiere at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in London on 17th February 2020, continuing through to 4th March. Based on the life of Jacqueline du Pré, Marston's evocative choreography, at turns joyful and poignant, was awarded 5 stars by the Daily Telegraph, and Feeney's score pays fitting homage to the rich classical cello repertoire.

The piece will be live broadcast in cinemas worldwide on February 25th 2020.
