Birmingham Royal Ballet presents an unmissable opportunity to see three stunning ballets by female choreographers, including the world premiere of the third Ballet Now commission by Didy Veldman, with a score by Gabriel Prokofiev, grandson of Sergei Prokofiev, the composer of Romeo and Juliet and the final ballet in our programme.

We will also see the welcome return of Jessica Lang’s beautiful Lyric Pieces, created for the Company as part of International Dance Festival Birmingham 2012, and our own Ruth Brill's brand-new take on Sergei Prokofiev's classic, Peter and the Wolf
