Birmingham Royal Ballet

Birmingham Royal Ballet

This breathtaking programme presents a work from great British choreographer John Cranko, alongside Jessica Lang's beautiful Lyric Pieces, and thrilling excerpts from some of the world-famous classics with which Birmingham Royal Ballet has made its name, all performed to live music from members of the Royal Ballet Sinfonia.

LYRIC PIECES
An exciting new work from award-winning American choreographer, Jessica Lang. Set to romantic piano miniatures by Edvard Grieg, this is her first work for a major European company.

BITESIZED BALLET
Birmingham Royal Ballet once again brings you a selection of stunning exceprts from some of the world's best-loved ballets. This year's excerpts include a section of Giselle Act I. Further details to be confirmed.

PINEAPPLE POLL
What might a classic cartoon look like if brought to life on stage? With the aid of a foot-tapping medley of the best of Gilbert and Sullivan and the comic choreographic touch of John Cranko, this is your opportunity to find out.

When the dashing Captain Belaye arrives in town, the female population swoon! Chief amongst them is Poll. Whilst half-heartedly dodging the attentions of Jasper, the Potboy at a local inn, she finds herself leading a band of desperate, love-lorn ladies, all seeking the attentions of the admirable officer, who is unwittingly taking the town by storm.

Wrapped up in his own little world, when will the oblivious Captain Belaye notice that half his crew have mysteriously shrunk and don't seem very at home in their beards?
