On Their Toes!



Theme and Variations | Grosse Fuge | Slaughter on Tenth Avenue

There are no performances listed for On Their Toes!

Three one-act ballets of energy, joy and entertainment.

Grosse Fuge sees the delicate interplay between groups of men and women who initially seem to ignore one another, before finally dancing together in glorious celebration.

Slaughter on Tenth Avenue is a crazy 30s comedy, its humour and vitality providing sparkling entertainment. After discovering a hitman in the audience is to target him as soon as his stage routine is over, a luckless leading man has no option but to extend his frantic solo until the cops can arrive!

Finally Theme and Variations is a joyous ballet, and the first that Birmingham Royal Ballet performed following the Company's move to the midlands. With its thrilling Tchaikovsky music and sumptuous décor, it has delighted audiences all over the world, being described as 'a compressed Sleeping Beauty'!
