LA ROYAL OPERA HOUSE
COVENT GARDEN, LONDON
Home to the Royal Ballet, the Royal Opera and the Royal Opera House Orchestra, the vision of this prestigious Theater is to give everyone access to ballets and operas of an exceptional standard. Since closing its doors due to the global pandemic in March 2020, the Royal Opera House has continued to bring together the world's most extraordinary artists and curated the #OurHouseToYourHouse program.
The Royal Opera House will reopen to the public on May 17, 2021 but, like the whole arts sector, the damage caused by the pandemic has been very significant. Donations to the Royal Opera House help this prestigious Theater to fully return to their own stages and support their community of artists, freelancers, craftspeople and theatre workers.
FIRST ARTIST OF THE ROYAL BALLET
To highlight the link between the Cantine dei Marchesi Incisa della Rocchetta and ballet, Ashley Dean, First Artist of the Royal Ballet, created in 2020 the artwork that adorns the Royal Opera House Limited Edition label.
Ashley’s deep understanding of ballet and her artistic sensibility made for a perfect fit for this creative collaboration with the winery Marchesi Incisa della Rocchetta. Ashley comments ‘I have always been equally inspired by drawing and painting as by ballet, so this commission was a dream come true. I aimed to distil the essence of a dancer’s qualities in the drawing, while giving space for the viewer’s imagination. The elements of harmony, balance and elegance all commanded my attention – much like the attributes of good wine!'
