Dancing Cheek to Cheek: the Outtakes

by Emilia & Linda on June 10, 2010

A long time ago (well… a few years back) in a galaxy not-so-far away Royal Ballet Principal Roberta Marquez suddenly found herself without a partner to dance well-known party piece Don Quixote in a Paris gala. Only a knight in shining ballet gear could rescue her. Cue mighty Steven McRae with whom she had been trying ballet steps; “playing around between pirouettes” in the Royal Opera House corridor. He hops on a train in the nick of time, learns a never-before-attempted role just before curtain up and saves his ballerina. Disaster averted and the beginning of a beautiful partnership which has wowed us this season.

If you liked our recent feature on Steven & Roberta you will love the below outtakes. Hear them talk about their onstage chemistry and see loads more exclusive pictures taken by the fab crew at Sojournposse.

And – just thought we’d remind you – if you are in Tokyo right now you should not miss them in the opening performance of La Fille Mal Gardée, 19 June (matinée).
