MATTHEW GOLDING TO JOIN THE ROYAL BALLET

The Royal Opera House made this announcement today.  Huge congratulations to Matthew!

Kevin O’Hare, Director of The Royal Ballet, announced today that Matthew Golding is to join the Company as a Principal in February 2014. His first performance will be on 27 March dancing alongside Natalia Osipova in The Sleeping Beauty.

Matthew is currently a Principal dancer with Dutch National Ballet. Born in Canada, he trained at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and the Universal Ballet Academy in Washington D.C. In 2002, he was awarded the Grand Prix from the Youth American Ballet Competition and received a prize scholarship at The Prix de Lausanne to attend The Royal Ballet School. Graduating in 2003, he joined American Ballet Theatre before moving to his current company in 2009.

Matthew first danced as a guest artist with The Royal Ballet, partnering Zenaida Yanowsky in La Bayadére, earlier this year.
Speaking about the appointment, Kevin O’Hare said: “I have very much enjoyed watching Matthew dance over last few years, and in particular, when he made his UK debut with us last Season. I am very pleased he is joining the Company and we look forward to welcoming him next year as the latest addition to our world class roster of Principals.”
