The photo shows Thiago and Marianela in an iconic pose from Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet. It was featured in our recent Valentine’s special on the couple. This 12 x 18 inch print is the first ever produced of this image and will be autographed by the dancers (and dedicated to the auction winner upon request).

100% of the auction proceeds will go to Oxfam – Haiti Earthquake Appeal. International bidders are welcome. For further information about the print and/or the auction feel free to email us at or tweet us @theballetbag.

The auction ends on February 15. Please spread the word & get bidding for this worthy cause!

Her favourite ballets feel like good books – one can see them 1,000 times and they always feel fresh. Linda loves Giselle, all full-length MacMillan plus Song of the Earth, Robbins’s Dances at a Gathering, Balanchine’s Serenade and Agon, Ashton’s Scènes de Ballet and Symphonic Variations.
