Birmingham Royal Ballet’s sparkling triple bill celebrates the power of storytelling alongside the versatility and virtuosity of the Company’s world-class dancers.
José Limón’s The Moor’s Pavane distils the passion and tension of Shakespeare’s Othello into a thrilling one-act tragedy, tightly focused on four characters and their jealousy. In the beautiful Wink, danced to music and the spoken word, Jessica Lang captures the poetry of five Shakespearean Sonnets. Finally, in Arcadia the ancient god Pan is unleashed, as Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Ruth Brill makes her first commissioned piece to a new score composed by renowned saxophonist John Harle.
Accompanied by the acclaimed Royal Ballet Sinfonia, Birmingham Royal Ballet presents an unforgettable evening of dance and drama.
