Yasmine Naghdi is a First Artist and Marcelino Sambé is an Artist with The Royal Ballet. They are the two dancers featured in this year’s Pointe Shoe Appeal campaign.
The Royal Opera House Pointe Shoes Appeal Competition entrants will be invited to guess how many shoes are contained within the tower to enter the chance to win a pair of tickets to a Royal Ballet in Rehearsal Insight Event on 24 April with tea and cake beforehand, and a backstage tour of the Royal Opera House. Designed by acrylic designers Talbot Designs, the tower will sit in the Royal Opera House until Thursday 17 April. Visitors will be invited to guess the number of shoes in the tower submitting their answers by posting a postcard into the tower, or Tweeting or Instagramming a photo of the tower with their guess using the hashtag #PointesWinPrizes
