Classical ballet, spoken word and eye-catching physical theatre combine in this reimagining of Sergei Prokofiev’s classic PETER AND THE WOLF. Join our heroine, Peter, and her best friend, Bird, as their day out takes an unexpected turn. Narration by poet Hollie McNish.
Inspired by a poem by ballet-fan David Laing, SEASONS IN OUR WORLD explores the relationship between the cycle of the seasons and individual human lives and communities. Set to a new score from award-winning composer Cevanne Horrocks-Hopayian.
Nick Owen opens our Gala performance on Saturday evening, hosting an audience with Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Artistic Director David Bintley. This will be one of David’s final appearances before he steps down after over 20 years at the helm of one of the country’s most successful ballet companies. PETER AND THE WOLF and SEASONS IN OUR WORLD will then follow. Gala tickets for this one-off performance are available for £60 in the Dress Circle and include a pre-show drink and a post-show reception in the Encore Lounge.
