Studio rehearsals for David Bintley's Aladdin pas de deux

Birmingham Royal Ballet's Director David Bintley created a new version of Aladdin for the National Theatre of Japan in 2008.

Birmingham Royal Ballet subsequently performed a single pas de deux from the piece at the 2010 Evening of Music and Dance at Symphony Hall. This was the first time that any part of the work had been seen in the UK.

Here you can see David teaching part of the excerpt to dancers Momoko Hirata and Alexander Campbell.

The piece will now be performed in the UK in full as part of the 2013 spring season at Birmingham Hippodrome.
