The Cecchetti Legacy Project
Filming of the Enrico Cecchetti Diploma
The legacy of Enrico Cecchetti is unique and the Cecchetti Society has long wanted to be able to record the most advanced Cecchetti work for future generations, but such a project is ambitious and expensive. The project aim is to film the Diploma work in a heritage DVD. As well as being a vital teaching support for Cecchetti teachers and students, the DVD will be an accessible resource for anyone wishing to learn more about the rich Cecchetti legacy.
The Society is greatly indebted to a small group of very generous Cecchetti ‘friends’ – the Cecchetti Legacy Fundraising Group – who have already raised some £50,000. Together, with support from the Cecchetti Society Trust, this sterling effort means that the major undertaking of filming of the Diploma work is well underway. Under the expert direction of Diane van Schoor, artistes of the Royal Ballet and Birmingham Royal Ballet are performing this most exacting of work, supported behind the camera by the hugely experienced film maker, Ross MacGibbon.
Whilst the fund raising efforts for this exciting project have been fantastic – there is still more to do! A programme of fundraising events is being planned and details will be posted on the Cecchetti UK website at cecchetti.co.uk/legacyproject.
