ONE of the world’s leading classical companies and the UK’s premier touring ballet company is returning
ONE of the world’s leading classical companies and the UK’s premier touring ballet company is returning to Wycombe Swan at the end of the month.
Birmingham Royal Ballet, which is celebrating their 25th anniversary this year, will perform a mixed programme highlighting arguably some of the greatest works in their repertoire.
It features work from contemporary choreographers through to some of the greats of traditional ballet, all performed to live music from members of the Royal Ballet Sinfonia.
It includes Quatrain, a fast-paced, dynamic ballet set to the fiery tango rhythms of Astor Piazzolla’s The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires; excerpts from some ballet classics; and FaÃ§ade, a charming ballet based on Edith Sitwell’s nonsensical poetry encompassing foxtrots, tangoes and waltzes, choreographed by Frederick Ashton.
