World renowned ballerina Alessandra Ferri returns to the Royal Opera House with the UK premiere of TRIO ConcertDance, the first dance performance to be staged in the newly refurbished Linbury Theatre, the West End’s newest and most intimate theatre.

TRIO ConcertDance is a joint collaboration between Alessandra Ferri, American Ballet Theatre Principal Herman Cornejo and acclaimed concert pianist Bruce Levingston.

The three artists have come together to create an evening of classic and contemporary piano solos and innovative choreography featuring work by Herman Cornejo, Russell Maliphant, Angelin Preljocaj, Fang-Yi Sheu, Demis Volpi and Wayne McGregor.

The programme celebrates the intimate and inextricable connection between music and dance, exploring the common ground between these two art-forms.

Alessandra Ferri will dance with Herman Cornejo, with Bruce Levingston accompanying the performances and playing a number of solos on stage.

Alessandra Ferri is a former Principal dancer with The Royal Ballet. She returned as a Guest Artist in 2015 to dance in Wayne McGregor’s Woolf Works for which she won an Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance.
