English National Ballet is committed to delivering artistic excellence and to giving audiences the best experience possible.

Sadly, the recent impact of Covid-19 means that rehearsals for our upcoming production of Raymonda have been significantly disrupted. This, combined with the complexities of bringing a new, full-length ballet to the stage, mean that in order to meet these commitments, the opening of Raymonda will be delayed.

“This has been an extremely difficult decision to make, but one which was necessary. We would be doing a disservice to ourselves and to our audiences if we presented this extraordinary work without it being fully prepared.

Raymonda is my first ballet as a choreographer, so very dear to my heart, and is the result of five years of research and collaboration with an exceptional creative team. I cannot wait to share it with you, even if it’s slightly later than we originally planned.”

Tamara Rojo, Artistic Director, English National Ballet

Raymonda will now premiere at the London Coliseum on Tuesday 18 January and run for seven performances until Sunday 23 January. Further details are available on the Raymonda production page.

Ticket holders for cancelled performances will be contacted directly to arrange refunds or credits.

Performances on Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 January will be available to book from noon on Friday 7 January.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your continued support.
