Alina Cojocaru launched the fundraising for the Bucharest Hospice Appeal through her first gala for Hospices of Hope in May 2008, which was a sell-out performance. We are delighted that Alina has now offered to provide us with another unique evening as we approach the completion of this project.

An evening of artists celebrating the past, present and the future, with highlights from the classical repertoire alongside new or rarely seen pieces including choreography by Marius Petipa, Tim Rushton, Eric Gauthier, Johan Kobborg and others. The programme will include 101; Don Quixote; Carmen Fantasie for Violin and Orchestra; Excerpts from Sleeping Beauty; Salute - (UK Premiere); Dying Swan; Les Lutins and other pieces.

Among the internationally renowned dancers joining Alina will be Isabelle Ciaravola of the Paris Opera Ballet, English National Ballet Principals Erina Takahashi and Vadim Muntagirov, Steven McRae, Johan Kobborg, Akane Takada, Frankie Hayward, Marcelino Sambe and James Hay from The Royal Ballet, Sergei Polunin from Stanislavsky Ballet, Xander Parish from The Mariinsky Ballet, Matthew Golding from The Dutch National Ballet, Ana Sendas and Stefanos Bizas of the Danish Dance Theatre and violin virtuoso Charlie Siem will also take to the stage. The orchestra for this spectacular evening of entertainment will be another old friend of Hospices of Hope, Manning Camerata. The complete roster of dancers, choreographers and musicians is in formation and will be announced shortly.

Alina recently travelled to Bucharest to see the progress of the Hospice of Hope building site as well as the future residents of this hospice. Alina also visited The National Ballet School of Romania, and is pleased that some of the students will perform in a fragment from Johan Kobborg's Salute, which will be a UK premiere.

To reflect the unique nature of this evening, a limited number of exclusive individual and corporate VIP packages available.

All proceeds from this event will go towards the Bucharest Hospice Appeal and everybody involved has donated their time free of charge or at greatly reduced cost.

I'm not sure whether it will actually affect anyone, since Angel is on the Northern Line only, but be aware that there are engineering works on the Circle and Hammersmith and City Lines affecting the area between, I think, King's Cross and Moorgate or so.
