The Royal Opera House is working in partnership with the Lowry on a major new exhibition about the history of The Royal Ballet, which will be on display at The Lowry in Salford from 22 October. The exhibition will also look at Salford artist L.S.Lowry’s involvement with ballet and how his appreciation of art, music and dance affected his work. Some previously unseen drawings, thought to have been influenced by his love of ballet, will be included in the exhibition, which will be part of The Lowry’s tenth anniversary celebrations.
