Katie Derham explores the process of creating a brand new ballet, from commissioning the music and the initial concept, through rehearsals, to the final performance. In February the Linbury Theatre re-opened with Blue Moon - a new ballet for seven female dancers, choreographed by Aletta Collins to a new score by David Sawer. Katie talks to them, along with principal dancers Beatriz Stix-Brunell and Hannah Grennell at all stages of the process about how the whole production comes together.
