I am excited to see the Company perform these works by some of the most influential choreographers. As Artistic Director I am always looking at our dancer’s development and this programme offers them both the challenge and opportunity to develop artistically.”

Continuing to bring the very best talent from around the world to a UK audience, this season sees English National Ballet welcome Guest Artists Ivan Vasiliev and Alban Lendorf, performing with the Company in Derek Deane’s Swan Lake at the London Coliseum from the 7 – 18 January 2015.

Vasiliev and Lendorf perform in the role of Prince Siegfried alongside Alina Cojocaru and Tamara Rojo respectively, in the role of Odette/Odile. This is the first time that Vasiliev has performed the role of Prince Siegfried. Visit www.ballet.org.uk/swanlake for full Principal casting.

Of Vasiliev and Lendorf, Tamara Rojo says: “It is a reflection of English National Ballet’s reputation that we are able to attract outstanding talent from around the world to perform with the Company. I can’t wait to see Ivan partner with Alina and I look forward to performing alongside Alban again in Swan Lake.

This season also sees new Principal Alejandro Virelles join English National Ballet from Boston Ballet. He will perform the lead roles in Swan Lake and Nutcracker on tour and at the London Coliseum.

Of joining the Company, Virelles says; “I grew up admiring Tamara Rojo as an artist and I am very excited to work with her at English National Ballet. Being a Principal with the Company has come at the perfect time in my career and I believe Tamara will have many great things to offer me as she is such an incredible talent.

Also joining the Company this season is Precious Adams, who recently finished her training at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy and was a double prize winner at the Prix de Lausanne 2014; Yoko Callegari from Boston Ballet; Adriana Lizardi from Ballet National de l’Opera de Bordeaux; Sarah Kundi from Ballet Black and Isabelle Brouwers and Jinhao Zhang who join from English National Ballet School.
