Shetland pony to feature in Royal Ballet

Posted on | 0 Responses

People heading to the Royal Opera House will have the rare privilege of seeing a live horse performing in a production.

Equine insurance customer George Gold has given the Royal Ballet permission for his Shetland pony Peregrine to star in La Fille Mal Gardee (The Wayward Daughter), which runs from April 20th to May 16th.

Mr Gold told Horse and Hound that nerves won't be a problem for his horse as he is very laid back and has come from a long line of ponies that have appeared on stage.

First artist corps de ballet James Wilkie told the news provider that he is confident Peregrine will be absolutely fine performing in front of people as he is "usually very well behaved on stage".

"He does lend a bit of unpredictability, though – one of the dancers always has to be on 'shovel duty' in case there are any accidents," he continued.
