Alina Cojocaru launched the fundraising for the Bucharest Hospice Appeal through her first gala for Hospices of Hope in May 2008, which was a sell-out performance. We are delighted that Alina has now offered to provide us with another unique evening as we approach the comple- tion of this project.

An evening of artists celebrating the past present and the future, with highlights from the classical repertoire along side new or rarely seen pieces including choreography by Marius Petipa, John Neumeier, Tim Rushton, Johan Kobborg and others.

Among the internationally renowned dancers joining Alina will be English National Ballet Principals Daria Klimentova and Vadim Muntagirov, Steven McRae and Johan Kobborg from The Royal Ballet, Thiago Bordin from the Hamburg Ballet, and violin virtuoso Charlie Siem will also take to the stage. The orchestra for this spectacular evening of entertainment will be another old friend of Hospices of Hope, Manning Camerata. The complete roster of dancers, choreographers and musicians is in formation and will be announced shortly.

Alina recently travelled to Bucharest to see the progress of the Hospice of Hope building site as well as the future residents of this Hospice. Alina also visited The National Ballet School of Romania and is pleased that some of the students will perform in a fragment from Johan Kobborg’s Salute, which will be a UK premier.

All proceeds from this event will go towards the Bucharest Hospice Appeal and everybody involved has donated their time free of charge or at greatly reduced cost. To reflect the unique nature of this evening a limited number of exclusive, individual and corporate, VIP packages are also available.

Hospices of Hope is a charity registered in the UK, Charity number 1088475 and SC040117
