One of the most famous and celebrated companies in the world, The Royal Ballet will appear at Jacob’s Pillow for the first time, as the company’s sole stop in the U.S. in 2024. To celebrate this milestone, the festival will feature daily back-to-back performances from The Royal Ballet in multiple venues.

This event page will point ticket buyers to The Royal Ballet program in the historic indoor Ted Shawn Theatre. For tickets to the company’s separate and concurrent program on the outdoor Henry J. Leir Stage—also from July 3-7, 2024—please visit this page.

This summer’s program will feature the U.S. Premiere of Secret Things by American choreographer Pam Tanowitz, a World Premiere by Wayne McGregor, created especially for Jacob’s Pillow, alongside works by Frederick Ashton, Kenneth MacMillan, and Christopher Wheeldon. The Royal Ballet Principals Matthew Ball, Mayara Magri, Marcelino Sambé, Anna Rose O’Sullivan, and Sarah Lamb will perform in this engagement along with a vibrant array of the company’s dancers. Principal dancer Natalia Osipova will perform on opening night (Wednesday, July 3). See below for the full program, casting for each performance will be announced two weeks in advance.

Based in London, England, The Royal Ballet has been in residence at The Royal Opera House in Covent Garden since 1946. The company was founded by Dame Ninette de Valois in 1931. The company’s celebrated repertory is drawn from 19th-century ballet classics as well as the distinctive English works of its Founder Choreographer Frederick Ashton and Principal Choreographer Kenneth MacMillan, and continues to resonate with audiences strongly today through the striking contemporary sensibility of Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor and Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon.
