It will be the first staging of this new Don Q. and we’ll be on site bringing you all the action: we’re teaming up with one of our favorite contributors, Dave Tries Ballet, to take over The Royal Opera House’s Twitter feed, tweeting backstage insights into what it takes to stage a new ballet production, as well as reactions from the audience at Covent Garden.

In short, we hope to make the coverage as epic as the world premiere of Alice in Wonderland’s!
