Join us in February 2019 at Birmingham's stunning Symphony Hall for a very special Evening of Music and Dance; the beauty and majesty of Birmingham Royal Ballet's orchestra, the Royal Ballet Sinfonia, will be on full show as they share the stage with the Company's world-class dancers.

Director David Bintley will provide his usual brand of humorous and insightful commentary on an evening that, as he approaches the end of his final season, will celebrate David's time with the Company.
