Will returns to Royal Opera House main stage!

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

roh.jpg The Royal Opera House has Will listed as Narrator for their Production of “Peter and The Wolf” in the Main Auditorium this December! The piece is choreographed by Matthew Hart (a regular performing colleague of Will’s), designs are by the late Ian Spurling and it is set to the famous musical score by Prokofiev. Our research tells us that the piece was first performed around 1995 in honor of Sir Peter Wright (then Director of Birmingham Royal Ballet) and The Narrator/Grandfather was played by Sir Anthony Dowell (then Director of The Royal Ballet). This will mark the first time that Will has returned to the Main Stage since leaving the Royal Ballet School where he most notably performed, among other roles, The Gypsy Lover in Sir Frederick Ashton’s “Two Pigeons”. The piece runs in a double bill along with the Royal Ballet Company’s “Beatrix Potter” and (if you are lucky enough to get a ticket) will prove to be a wonderful event for the whole family!
