“We are delighted to be extending our partnership with Fathom Events into a second full season,” Alastair Roberts, MD (Managing Director) of Royal Opera House Enterprises said. “Last Season saw world-class performances from The Royal Ballet relayed into hundreds of cinemas across the USA and we are excited about building on this success. 2014-15 is an important Season for the Company: as well as relaying live performances into cinemas, The Royal Ballet is coming to the USA on tour to give live performances in Chicago, Washington and New York next summer. Extending our partnership with Fathom Events is the ideal way to mark the start of this important Season for us.”

“Bringing Great Britain’s most prestigious ballet company back to cinemas across the U.S. is an exciting opportunity for fans of all ages,” said Fathom Events Senior Vice President Dan Diamond. “The audiences from our first season wanted to experience more of these magical performances in cinemas and we are thrilled to partner again with the Royal Opera House to meet their demand.”
