We're delighted to announce that we'll be returning to the USA this autumn, with performances in New York City. Ahead of this we'll be joining the parade for this year’s New York City Pride as guests of the British Consulate.

It is a huge privilege for Birmingham Royal Ballet to perform at the prestigious Fall for Dance festival this autumn. Continuing to build upon the international reputation of this renowned company, I look forward to showcasing the very best of what BRB has to offer to American audiences.

BRB will perform at the New York City Center on Thursday 5 & Friday 6 October as part of the ten-day Fall for Dance Festival. Now in its 20th year, Fall for Dance showcases an international array of dance artists and companies in a programme that aims to build new dance audiences with tickets priced at just $20. Tickets go on public sale 10 September 2023 at 11am EST.

In our first-ever performance at the festival, BRB will perform Brazilian choreographer Juliano Nunes's Interlinked as part of a triple bill alongside two other international companies (names to be announced). With a specially composed score by Australian composer Luke Howard, Interlinked is an abstract piece that explores ideas of grace, beauty and harmony in ways that push the usual boundaries of classical dance. It has been enthralling audiences since its premiere last year and was recently revived for the Company's sell-out summer season in Birmingham.

For the very first time, BRB will perform alongside a huge variety of leading international Companies at this year’s Fall for Dance festival at New York City Center, a celebration that brings to life something very close to my heart - bringing dance to new audiences.

Principal Dancers, Tzu-Chao Chou and Brandon Lawrence will walk in the New York City Pride Parade on 25 June and be interviewed for the Brits in the Big Apple podcast.

Birmingham Royal Ballet’s American engagements are a continuation of the ever-growing reputation of this fantastic and formidable company, made up of dancers from across the world, proudly based in Birmingham.
