Combining five outstanding performances by one of the world’s leading ballerinas, this collection includes two iconic roles she created for The Royal Ballet: the fun-filled, eponymous Alice (“the part she was born to play.” The Daily Telegraph), in Christopher Wheeldon’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland; and Jacqueline du Pré in the biographical work The Cellist by Cathy Marston. The latter is paired with Frederick Ashton’s delightful The Two Pigeons in a new collection created especially for this box. Finally, two all-time classics feature Lauren as the Sugar-Plum Fairy in Peter Wright’s magical production of The Nutcracker, and then as a heart-breaking Juliet in Kenneth MacMillan’s signature work, Romeo & Juliet.

“…fresh and reinvigorated…” (The Stage ***** - The Nutcracker)

“This piece truly shines…” (Sunday Express ***** –The Cellist)

“…more than mere choreography.” (The Daily Express **** - The Two Pigeons)
