Don’t miss this series of intimate talks, hosted by Artistic Director David McAllister, with key creatives and principal artists. Hear all about what motivates them, what their favourite ballets are and what life is like for them on and off the stage. Moving, frank and funny insights into the lives of our top artists.
Join us on 7 September as David sits down with the Argentinian superstar Julio Bocca, who had an astounding 20-year career as a principal with American Ballet Theatre, dancing regularly with Alessandra Ferri as well as countless other greats. Julio will talk about his journey through the dance world (he is a proficient tango dancer as well as a ballet dancer), directing companies, and his recent work with Stanton Welch on Sylvia.
