Many of these ballets will be created, at The Royal Ballet's invitation, by a group of internationally acclaimed choreographers. Siobhan Davies well known for her work with Second Stride, Rambert Dance Company and her own ensemble of dancers, will create the opening piece, her first work for the Company.
