Inside The Royal Ballet

It seems like ballet companies are all about breaking that fourth wall these days!

If you had fun browsing through Henry Leutwyler’s behind-the-scenes photos of New York City Ballet, you’ll be happy to hear that The Royal Ballet recently allowed a photographer—from London paper “The Guardian”—backstage, too, to document its latest triple-bill performance. There are shots of everything from Firebird Mara Galeazzi’s elaborate makeup and glamorous headpiece to sweaty, intimate rehearsal moments with superstars (and real-life super-couple) Alina Cojocaru and Johan Kobborg.

Take a look—it’s the perfect way to while away a lazy Sunday morning.
