The two, who met when they were both at the Royal Ballet and later became a couple, took the lead roles in a West End stage version of the ballet presented by the contemporary dance outfit Adventures In Motion Pictures. The production is set in the Blitz and Prince Charming is a wounded pilot.
While receiving largely good reviews, however, it failed to capture the public's imagination in the way that AMP's previous West End production of Swan Lake did. A recently announced extension of the run has been cancelled and the show will close on 10 January.
Katharine Dore, the producer, said: "Bookings for the end of January were disappointing. It costs pounds 100,000 a week to keep on and that could have involved losing a huge amount of money. We decided to go out on a high rather than maybe grinding to a halt."Reuse content
