Celebrate Valentine’s weekend in the company of our world-class dancers and internationally acclaimed orchestra, the Royal Ballet Sinfonia conducted by Principal Conductor Paul Murphy.

Our performance at Birmingham's Symphony Hall will be introduced by BBC Television's Nick Owen, and will include a conversation with Director Carlos Acosta. Our very first visit to Warwick Arts Centre the following evening will be compered by resident medic on ITV's This Morning, Dr Ranj.

Both concerts celebrate love in music and ballet with a cornucopia of wonderful romantic orchestral music and pas de deux. Expect exquisite classical extracts from Swan Lake and Don Quixote, and stunning orchestral highlights from Puccini, Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky.

Book early to guarantee the most romantic of evenings.
