The stringent measures to tackle the coronavirus outbreak, has had an immediate impact on Birmingham Royal Ballet, our artists, staff and audiences. The Company is talking with all our touring venues. We will share further updates about our plans on this page, via social media and via our e-newsletters. Please bear with us in this time of crisis.
PERFORMANCES AT THEATRE ROYAL PLYMOUTH, 31 MARCH – 4 APRIL
Theatre Royal Plymouth and Birmingham Royal Ballet are sorry to announce that, due to the closure of TRP in response to current UK Government guidelines, the scheduled performances of Swan Lake Dreams on 31 March, First Steps Swan Lake on 3 April and Swan Lake from 1 to 4 April and any associated events won’t now take place.
Birmingham Royal Ballet love performing at TRP and we are working closely together to find the best possible solution for everyone during this difficult time. Not least in giving our Swan Lake Dreams participants their opportunity to perform on the lyric stage.
TRP will be in direct contact with all participants and ticket holders to update further in the next couple of days.
BIRMINGHAM ROYAL BALLET AT THE GRANGE FESTIVAL 10-11 July
Sadly, due to the cancellation of this year's Grange Festival, Birmingham Royal Ballet will no longer be performing Wayne McGregor's 2Human in July. We are exploring ways we can work with The Grange Festival and Wayne McGregor in future.
Birmingham Royal Ballet has been so touched by the many kind messages of support from our friends across the UK, and beyond. Many have asked how they can help during this uncertain time and as a response to this we have launched our #BeRightBack campaign. Donations to #BeRightBack will keep us en pointe, and delivering incredible work for years to come.
