Renata Calderini warming up before Frank O Salisbury's painting India's Homage to the Unknown Warrior at last night's performance of The Nutcracker in the Durbar Court, the spectacular enclosed courtyard at the Foreign Office in Whitehall. English National Ballet performed highlights from Tchaikovsky's ballet to mark the 100th anniversary of its premiere in St Petersburg on 18 December 1892. Money raised will go to the ENB and The Stepping Stones (Peto UK) Appeal.
