Margot Fonteyn International Ballet Competition (formerly Genee) 2020 to be held at the Royal Opera House

Recommended Posts

While looking for something on the ROH website this morning, I happened upon the fact that this has recently appeared:




"The Margot Fonteyn International Ballet Competition 2020 (formerly the Genée International Ballet Competition), presented by the Royal Academy of Dance, offers the finest young dancers trained by RAD teachers from around the globe the opportunity to compete on a world stage.


Previous award winners have gone on to careers with some of the most respected international ballet companies, including The Royal Ballet.


Candidates are coached by an international faculty before competing in the semi-finals, held this year in the Royal Opera House’s Linbury Theatre on Wednesday 2 and Thursday 3 September 2020.


Booking for the semi-finals will open in early 2020.


Finalists will then dance in front of an esteemed panel of judges, including Dame Darcey Bussell, in a spectacular performance on the Main Stage on Saturday 5 September 2020.


Priority tickets are now on sale to RAD Members. General booking opens in April 2020.


More information can be found at royalacademyofdance.org/fonteyn2020."

Does anyone know if they will be keeping some tickets back for general booking? And will there also be priority booking for the semis?
