We're delighted to announce that Matthew Ball, Principal with The Royal Ballet, will be dancing the role of Prince Florimund, partnering BRB Principal Céline Gittens, in two performances of The Sleeping Beauty during our Birmingham Hippodrome season.

This is the first-ever time Matthew has performed with us and a rare opportunity to see him dance at Birmingham Hippodrome.

Matthew said:I am thrilled to be offered the chance to perform as a guest principal with Birmingham Royal Ballet this coming week in The Sleeping Beauty. Peter Wright's wonderful productions have formed an integral part of my career in The Royal Ballet and I can't wait to appear in his sumptuous interpretation of this classic! It will be my pleasure to dance alongside the fantastic Céline Gittens and the entire BRB company for the first time.

Matthew and Céline will be performing together in The Sleeping Beauty at the evening performances on Saturday 24 and Thursday 29 February. Don't miss this unique opportunity to see them dance together in Sir Peter Wright's enchanting production. Secure your tickets via the button below.
